Port Byron Reviews

Overall, Port Byron is a great town to live in. There are many nice houses, a great school district, and friendly people. There are quite a few bars/restaurants downtown, but otherwise not much else to do. However, it is only about a twenty minute drive to the Quad Cities, where there are more options.

This Riverside village is quiet and peaceful apart from the occasional train that passes by. Most of the people in the town know each other by name, and interact on a daily basis. The library and townhall coordinate with each other to organize events throughout the year. One of the biggest events in this town is the TugFest, which is a giant tug of war (across the river) between Port Byron and the town of Le Claire, Iowa.
The only place where the river changes directions. The river bend. Port Byron. I call this home. A short drive to the cities for work or play, and she always calls you back home. Port Byron
