The Quad Cities has a lot of options for all types of adults planning a weekend trip away or a local “staycation” from the Active to the Adventurous, or for the more Artistic.
If you are interested in a day trip, DeWitt, IA, is a good destination less than an hour away. In June my friend, Abby, and I decided to take a drive to DeWitt, Iowa, which is 30 minutes north of Davenport on Route 61. DeWitt has a population a little over 5,000 and offers interesting shopping, restaurant and museum options at a leisurely pace.
Today was a crisp and sunny December afternoon so I decided to head over the I-74 bridge from Illinois into Iowa to do some holiday shopping in the Village of East Davenport. The Village, which was first established in 1851 as a logging town, is a sixty square block district. It was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1980.
