The Axis Hotel opened in the Fall of 2019 in downtown Moline, breathing new life into an old building. Located at 1630 5th Avenue, on the axis intersection, the boutique hotel is a new Heart of America business and a cool addition to the hip growth of the downtown area.

The Quad Cities hosts three must-do fantastic preschool activities open to visitors and Quad Citizens: Tykes on the Turf at The River’s Edge in Davenport, Teaching Kitchen at the Family Museum in Bettendorf, and KinderNature at the Botanical Center in Rock Island. What I love most about these is that visiting kids can easily register for one session, while Quad Citizens can participant multiple times. If you have someone visiting or live in the area with preschool children – these are especially great for the winter months.
These places are open for meals on Christmas Day 2019 – Wednesday, Dec. 25!
Graveyard Studios – located at 2850 Eastern Ave in Davenport, Iowa – is an awesome creative co-work space that is preparing itself for a bright future of helping out the artistic community of the Quad Cities.
I recently had the opportunity to sit down in the studio with owner, Josh Graves, to ask him a few questions, get a tour of the space, and learn all about this cool endeavor.
There are 6 less days between Thanksgiving and Christmas this year, and everyone has been itching to turn on the holiday lights. Well…the lights are definitely on now so plan your driving tour and December nights at these popular Quad Cities locations. Or book a light tour with a local limo or trolley company.
Abernathy’s is a wonderfully eclectic shop that specializes in the classically vintage and delightfully strange. Located now at 432 W. 3rd Street in Davenport, it has joined the businesses on the west side of the downtown expansion, after being displaced by the April 2019 flooding.
