Located on the northwestern border of the Illinois, the Quad Cities area consists of Rock Island, Moline and East Moline in Illinois and Davenport and Bettendorf in Iowa. Although the area was originally an amalgam of four towns, growth has bolstered the population of Moline and in turn raised the number of local attractions and traveler services available. The Ben Williamson Park in Rock Island is home to free water ski shows put on by the Backwater Gamblers Water Skiers, a group of stunt performers in the area. The city of Moline boasts the Taste of the Quad Cities, an annual waterfront festival that showcases local chefs and cuisine along with live entertainment and fireworks. The John Deere Pavilion in Moline is another draw for visitors to the Quad Cities and features a history of the man as well as the farm implements that bear his name.
