Living in the Quad Cities

Palmer’s Main Campus is located in Davenport, Iowa, which is part of the Quad Cities, a mid-size bi-state region along the Mississippi River comprised of Davenport and Bettendorf in Iowa and Moline and Rock Island in Illinois. Just a short walk down the hill from our campus, you can catch a minor league baseball game at Modern Woodmen Park, pick up local produce from the farmer’s market or hang out with friends at a local brewery. You’ll also find the renowned Figge Art Museum and enjoy unique, locally-operated music venues as well as the Vibrant Arena, which attracts national names in entertainment.
