We encourage you to check out our calendar of events on our website visitquadcities.com. The Quad Cities region is located on the Mississippi River and is made up of the riverfront cities of Moline East Moline Rock Island in Illinois and Davenport and Bettendorf in Iowa. The area also includes smaller communities and towns that offer their own wonderful surprises. Find out more about them on page 50. Why are we called Quad Cities Before World War II this region was known as the Tri-Cities and included only Davenport in Scott County Iowa and Rock Island and Moline in Rock Island County Illinois. With the growth of Rock Island County East Moline was eventually given equal status in the early 60s. The region then became the Quad Cities . By the 70s Bettendorf had grown such that people discussed the adoption of the name Quint Cities . However by this time the name Quad Cities had become known and Quint never caught on. As Bettendorf passed East Moline in size it became one of the Quad Cities -- a name that is technically a misnomer as the area includes five cities and many nearby communities. The total population for the region is over 400 000. Visitors come to the Quad Cities for a variety of different reasons... the Mississippi River riverboat cruises live music festivals historic sites museums casinos outdoor recreation biking trails arts culture golf wineries microbreweries and shopping. Most importantly they love our Midwestern friendliness and the great values they find here when traveling with family friends or for a couples getaway.
