Davenport Reviews

Davenport is a town full of character that has everything you could ever need. My favorite part of Davenport is the downtown area with many family owned stores and restaurants with a beautiful view of the Mississippi River. There are also different festivals throughout the entire year, it is definitely worth checking out!
Review Davenport
I love living in Davenport because it has lots of things to offer. It has many parks, many recreation events for kids, several museums, and a cool downtown area. Iowa is great because you get to witness all four seasons every year! Not all states can say that!
Davenport is a diverse community and because of that you can learn a lot about life from others.
Davenport has a vast major of different cultures, religion, and many local schools. Some new shopping areas and fast food/restaurants. There is also the Putnam and the Figgie Museum. Multiple different parks to and recreational areas all around Davenport. There is also vast opportunities to find different job experiences.
