Kayak Racers In Fog

Outdoor Recreation Rentals

The first thing that comes to mind when referencing vacation rentals might be Airbnb, VRBO, a meeting space or event hall, or even renting a vehicle.  Yes, we have those things too, but there’s so much more to rent to make your vacation even better with some outdoor recreation in the Quad Cities.

There are plenty of options for rentals to get you out on the water.  Stand Up Paddle Boarding (SUP) is the newest way to experience the water.  It uses a board like a surfboard while the paddler stands or kneels on the board while using a long, single-bladed paddle.  There are instruction classes and rentals.  You can also rent pontoon boats, kayaks, and paddleboats in the Quad Cities.

Exiting Canoe at Adventure Race

The Mississippi River has a lot of activities to offer, but the exploring options do not stop there.  Residents and visitors alike can pedal their way down the paved paths near the Mississippi River with a rental from the Quad Cities Convention & Visitors Bureau.  There are a handful of trails to choose from, such as the 60-mile long Great River Trail in Illinois or the 10.5 mile-long Duck Creek Trail in Iowa.  Biking around the Quad Cities is a great way to become associated with venues in the area or just to see the beautiful scenery.

Biking family2Bicycles can be rented from the Union Station Visitor Center, 102 S. Harrison in downtown Davenport, Iowa; and Bass Street Landing Visitor Center, 1601 River Drive in downtown Moline, Illinois.  These centers are all located right on the riverfront bike paths.
