When you think football, you, of course, think Quad Cities, right? Well, maybe not, but perhaps you should!
SOME PRETTY FANTASTIC FOOTBALL MILESTONES TOOK PLACE RIGHT HERE.
In just a few weeks, schools will be ending for the year and transitioning into summer break. During this time, many parents scurry to find ideas to keep their child engaged, interactive, excited, and avoiding excessive screen time during the summer. It’s important that anything their child does provides learning experiences and/or some sort of physical activity. We are fortunate in the Quad Cities to have multiple opportunities for individuals of all ages in every season — especially, with our local Putnam Museum and Science Center.
One of the best things about living in the Quad Cities is the vast number of Easter egg hunting opportunities for all ages and even for pets! Check these out and join the fun!
The Quad Cities now offers three fantastic indoor spaces to jump: Altitude Trampoline Park in Davenport, IA, Elevate Trampoline Park in Milan, IL, and Helium Trampoline & Indoor Adventure Park in Eldridge, IA. Our whole family (ages 2-40) loves to trampoline and enjoys the various activities, obstacles and fun at the different trampoline parks around the area. Recently, our toddlers have been taking advantage of the Toddler/Tot Times. You won’t want to miss this great opportunity for younger-child fun at a great price!
There are few people around the area that don’t love chocolate in some form. Whether indulging in a box of store-bought chocolates or making your way downtown to the local excellence of Lagomarcino’s, chocolate is something familiar to know and love. But when the local delicacies are available, the community will often unite together to savor every moment of the event.
On Saturday, April 6, the Quad Cities Botanical Center will house local chocolate shops and bakeries for the day. Dubbed the “Chocolate Experience,” tasty treats will grace the booths at the event along with other local vendors. Tickets must be purchased in order to secure a specific time slot in the two-hour tasting window, which runs 9AM-11PM, 12PM-2PM and 3PM-5PM. Sampling tickets may be limited to purchase at the door. The time is capped to ensure all vendors are able to give guests a “memorable chocolate experience” and have the ability to restock the supply during the off-hour.
