Thanks for all your help on the forums with planning my trip last weekend - we had a great time!
There was really a ton to see and do for such a small city....I was really impressed. I posted reviews for everything as I normally do, but here is the run down:
Likes: John Deere Pavalion (son thought it was awesome...really is a first rate attraction anywhere), Niabi Zoo (feeding giraffes was a highlight), Family Museum, and really liked dinner at Cafe Fresh
Just Okay: Quad City Botanical Garden, Iowa 80 Truck Stop, Cafe Indigo, Lagomarcino's
The hotel was surprisingly good (Isle Bettendorf for $50 per night on Priceline). We were in the North Tower (I told them on the phone that we would not be gambling.....I think they keep gamblers and smokers in the South Tower as it was all families, convention folks, and wedding parties in the North). The room was very nicely done, clean, modern, and like-new. No compliants at all :)
Anyway, thanks for your help!
