We are a family of 4 visiting the quad cities in anticipation of relocating later this year. We've exhausted google and decided we'd ask the community for some suggestions. Our children are young and quality schools are important to us. Information online points pretty clearly at Bettendorf and Le Claire when it comes to schools and the disparity seems pretty wide when compared to davenport, moline, etc.

We are an active family who spends a lot of time outside and would like to tap into that in our new community. Are there any residents of the area who might offer some suggests of cool neighborhoods, main streets and local attractions we should check out when we're in town? Are there any up and coming areas we should consider?

Thanks for any advice you can offer.

I'm not sure there are many members of C-D near Quad Cities who are posting.

I hesitate to write much because I've only visited that area several times on day trips.

I don't know the OP's field, or I might suggest Iowa City or Des Moines, instead. My sense is that the schools are a lot better in and around Iowa City because of the influence of the University of Iowa.

A simple search would find me answering every QCA question 5 times each.

Random out-of-area poster jumps into old thread to chastise no one in particular about a lack of response.

Such an excellent use of time and advice... SMH.

This is because the taxes are much lower in IA.
