Silvis, IL is a small beautiful community that has a sweet charm to it. Ive always loved this town and ive always have been grateful that I live here. Ive moved around many times since I turned 18 and this town is the place that seemed to always draw me in and make me feel safe. It normally is a very quite community and not much really happened here but I think that's why its so special because of the fact that its a quiet town that allows families to grow up in a safe environment.

It's a small town, there are lots of local entertainment, shopping and a hospital. Great place to raise a family!
Silvis is a tight knit community. There are small businesses in this town. They are fun to go to and I like to give back to the small businesses. I have lived in Silvis my entire life and if I could change anything about Silvis it would be to add sidewalks for the safety of those who enjoy walking and being outside.
