All of us have experienced this at least once, whether it be a friend, cousin, or in-laws. They come into town expecting to see and do some fun stuff, when in reality most of us just sit around and drink by the fire pit, drink by the TV, or drink at our favorite watering hole.
We really do have a lot of awesome stuff to do in the Quad Cities, and hopefully, this will help you find something to do with your family of any age.
Things to Do That Are Uniquely Quad Cities:
Antique Archaeology is home to the American Pickers, and I guarantee no matter where they’re from, they’ve spent some time watching the show. Stop out to their store, and if your timing is right, you might even bump into Mike Wolfe.
Taco Pizza – Anywhere
It’s one of those things we might not jump straight to, but Taco Pizza was born here right at Happy Joe’s. Most people haven’t had it, and many haven’t even heard of it. Stop by your favorite pizza place, because they probably have a variation of it, or take them to the OG at Happy Joe’s.
Taco Tato – Hungry Hobo
Hungry Hobo is a uniquely local favorite, and people who leave the area always seek it out when they get back. Some seek them out for the bread, waffle fries and cheese, others are on the hunt for their favorite: The Taco Tato.
The Quad City Botanical Center (Especially in Christmastime) – Rock Island
The Quad City Botanical Center is a great stop to kill a few hours looking at exotic plants and learning about them. If you check their website, you might even find a special event to attend. If you’re going in November or December, be sure to check out the Winter Nights, Winter Lights event they run all Christmas season. Indoor and outdoor walk-through beautiful light displays built around the plants on display.
Visit Iowa 80 World’s Largest Truck Shop – Walcott
The World’s Largest Truckstop is located about 20 minutes north of town and includes the Iowa 80 Trucking Museum, multiple restaurants, and store with a bunch of Iowa crap. It could be a one-night stop.
Eat at Iowa Machine Shed – Davenport
If you want to give someone an authentic Iowa meal, complete with favorites like corn casserole, or a big ass tenderloin, Iowa Machine Shed is the spot to go.
Make Your Own Buttercupp Candles – Moline, LeClaire
You can bring a party, or even just a couple of people, and sip wine or beer while you mix your perfect scent.
