Join us – the Quad City Botanical Center and the Rock Island Parks & Recreation Department heads north for a Fall Foliage Tour!

Prairie Du Chein, Wisconsin is the oldest community on the Upper Mississippi River. Its rich heritage and traditions are a delight to visitors and local residents alike. Prairie du Chien is filled with sites of historic significance. Many are located on St. Feriole Island, which is one of the city’s earliest settlements. Villa Louis, a Victorian-era estate developed on the island in the 1840s by fur trader Hercules Dousman, was Wisconsin’s first State Historic Site. We will also take in the beautiful riverfront and fall colors on a Maiden Voyage Boat Tour as well as a stop at Pikes Peak State Park in Iowa. Dinner will be served at Breitbach’s Country Dining in Sherill, IA. Breitbach’s was opened in 1852 and has been in the Breibach family since 1862. Breitbach’s Country Dining is Iowa’s oldest food and drinking establishment!
