Bettendorf Reviews

43 reviews
All Categories
I've lived in the QCA including Bettendorf for almost 15 years and out of the 4 major 'quad' cities, Bettendorf is the best in almost every aspect. The only down fall is that costs of living isn't cheap compared to the other 3 cities. Aside from prices of housing and other costs of living it is an awesome place to live, grow and prosper! They have great community events, a family museum that keeps it's exhibits fresh, a library that is state of the art, a couple art galleries, a ton of good places to eat, movie theaters and other night life places for adults and college students. Plus they have one of the largest community college campuses in the Midwest! From any age, Bettendorf is a great place to grow up, go to school, have a career and have a great family!
Review Bettendorf
A great town focused on family and fun activities! Always great festivals and many local, and chain restaurants to choose from! A very safe town that is known for its excellent schools.
Bettendorf is a wonderful place to live, go to school and be involved with the community. The area is safe, clean and expanding daily. All of the conveniences of doctors, schools, grocery stores, post offices, and shops are nearby. Their are outdoor parks, dog parks, bike paths and more. It is extremely family friendly.
