Davenport Reviews

All Categories
I've lived here for over 10 years now. I moved here after I graduated high school. This town is very easy to navigate and there is no shortage of great places for food, social life, meeting people and shopping! Growing up we would come to Davenport for different things, like family or shows at the current iWireless Center. My wife also moved about 8 years ago and she's loved this town as well ever since!
Review Davenport
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!
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.
