What is there to do in the Quad Cities?

Mrs. OTW58 and I are thinking about taking tomorrow through Friday off and getting out of town for a few days.

We both love to play golf, and I see that the TPC at Deere Run is a public facility - and is pretty reasonable for a PGA Tour course.

Anyway, that covers tomorrow - what the hell is there to do in Davenport/Rock Island/Moline to keep busy the 2nd day? We'll drive back on Friday morning.

Google has been of no help.

Any suggestions - even antifreeze - welcome.

Looks like "Floatzilla" will be there this weekend.

Do something significant for once and set a world record.

If that doesn't float your boat, you can take a guided segway tour of Davenport.

Thank me later.

Looks like we have Thursday morning/afternoon to kill.

We're driving up tomorrow morning. Staying at Jumer's. Playing the TPC course in the afternoon.

Forgot that the Cardinals Single-A affiliate is in Quad Cities, so we're hitting the game that night.

At this point, we're probably looking for a decent dinner recommendation for Wednesday night after golf, a decent lunch recommendation for Thursday and some sort of activity for Thursday afternoon.

Any museums, historical districts, antiques/shopping, etc available?

Even something that's a short drive from QC would be OK.

Can't get a decent hotel room downtown for under $200 a night.

I love Chicago, but I'm not dropping 4 bills plus just to sleep.

Very good...

I would definitely suggest either lunch or dinner at The Faithful Pilot in LeClaire, IA...about 15/20 minutes from Davenport. Make reservations, and ask for seating in the back along the river. If you are in to wine, order the 03 Kiona Cab, and try any of their steaks. The shops in LeClaire are very nice, and it is right along the river. Also, the guys from the TV show "American Pickers" live there, and you can stop by their antique shop. www.faithfulpilot.com

I would also recommend dinner at Woodfire Grill. Excellent food, and right next to a river roots coffee house that usually has somebody playing Thursday nights. www.gowoodfire.com

There are also a couple of nice river boats to gamble on in Davenport and Bettendorf.

I would also suggest going to the Putnam Museum. Their exhibits are usually pretty nice, and the IMAX theatre is also there as well if you want to catch a 3D show.

If you are in to wine as you can tell I am, you can stop by The Grape Life, and have a nice bottle of wine while speaking to the owner. Very relaxing way to kill some time!

You won't be disappointed with the TPC course!

Any questions, let me know!

Yea, do stuff by the river. If it's anything like the rest of Iowa atm, it will smell like sewage and dead fish from all the flooding. Have fun.
