Quad Cities News Feed

WeAreQuadCities.com is the original community portal for the Quad Cities of Iowa and Illinois. As locals know, the “Quad” cities actually five, and could be called the “Quint” cities. The five communities joined by the Mississippi River are Bettendorf and Davenport in Iowa, and Rock Island, Moline and East Moline on the Illinois side.

The Quad Cities are known for being a vibrant, fun and family-friendly location with excellent shopping, dining, hotels, gaming, professional sports, museums, history and visitor attractions. The Quad Cities is also the home of John Deere and the Rock Island Arsenal.
