One of the first things people tend to notice about
the Quad Cities Area is the water. We are both surrounded
and divided by the Mississippi and Rock Rivers, the
Hennepin Canal, and various wetlands, sloughs, lakes
and feeder streams. A great benefit of this are some
spectacular sunsets that can be viewed from different
areas along the rivers. Here you will find various photos,
mostly of the river, and sunsets that give you an idea
of the beauty of the region. We will be updating this
section regularly. All photos are the property of DestinationQuadCities.com.
