We're so lucky, here in the Quad Cities, to have so many different things to do.  If you want sports, we've got a ton of options for every season.  If you want music, there are plenty of venues both large and small.  If you want art, you can find it even just walking down the street.

Quad City Botanical Center

The Quad City Botanical Center shows us that not only are flowers pretty to look at but teaches us about the specific role they play in our environment and our ability to grow food.

You can really lose yourself in these tours as you learn about each plant and wind through the seemingly endless maze of incredible greenery.

Donation for Entry

For just one week only...the Quad City Botanical Center will allow guests to choose their own admission fee.  That's right, whatever you'd like to pay to get into the gardens is what you're entry fee is.

Sunday, August 7th, through Saturday, August 13th guests will be given the chance to "name their price" in hopes that everyone in the QCA will get a chance to experience the QC Botanical Center.
