Boating and Water Activities
Rivers in our regions of Western Illinois and Eastern Iowa offer the opportunity for fun recreation and water activities, including fishing, boating, kayaking and more. Having access to assets like the Mississippi River make our region strong and allow for beautiful river-front views.
Local lakes provide more opportunities for boating and for some of the best fishing in the Midwest.
Some of the best boating areas in Iowa and Illinois exist in our communities, including Coralville Lake, Rathbun Lake and the Mississippi River. Living close to these waterways make it easier to get out on the water with your family or friends.
