Compare Bettendorf to Top 10 Best Places
Like gambling? Bettendorf may be the place for you. The town's gently rolling hills give way to the mighty Mississippi River and to the area's largest employer, the Isle Casino Hotel -- the first riverboat casino in the nation.
Kids in Bettendorf enjoy the Splash Landing water park and the interactive Family Museum and attend elementary schools with names such as "Mark Twain" and "Grant Wood."
With the nearest major city (Chicago) 180 miles away, Bettendorf has done much to enhance its own economic development, and is currently one of very few cities in the nation to have a fiber optic network available to all of its businesses. --D.G.
