Davenport is a city along the Mississippi River in the American state of Iowa. As of the 2000 census, the city had a population of 98,359. According to a 2006 estimate, the city had grown slightly to 99,514. Davenport is part of the Quad Cities, along with neighboring Bettendorf and the Illinois cities of Moline, East Moline and Rock Island. Davenport is the home of Saint Ambrose University and Palmer College of Chiropractic, which is the birthplace of chiropractic medicine and wellness technique. Davenport is the county seat of Scott County. Davenport was founded in 1836 by Antoine LeClaire and named after his friend Colonel George Davenport after a signing of a peace treaty ending the Black Hawk War. Several well-known annual music festivals take place in Davenport. Notable festivals are the Mississippi Valley Blues Festival, The Mississippi Valley Fair, and the Bix Beiderbecke Memorial Jazz Festival, dedicated to Davenport native Bix Beiderbecke. An internationally known seven-mile (11 km) foot race called the Bix 7 is run during the festival. Davenport (along with neighboring Rock Island, Illinois) won the "2007 City Livability Award" in the small-city category from the U.S. Conference of Mayors. The award acknowledges achievements from the "RiverVision" plan of Davenport and Rock Island; "RiverVision is a bi-state collaboration between Davenport and Rock Island to transform the Mississippi Rivers edge into one of the most compelling waterfronts in the nation." read full wikipedia reference about Davenport, Iowa OTHER POPULAR DESTINATIONS IN IOWA
