The Village of Cordova is a small, quaint community located just a few miles north of the Quad-Cities on the Illinois side of the Mississippi River. Cordova maintains its warmth and charm even though we are just minutes away from such known places such as Exelon-Cordova Nuclear Power Plant and Cordova Dragway Park (drag strip), as well as several other surrounding businesses and manufacturing facilities. Locals believe the Mississippi river is heading upstream to its headwaters in Minnesota. This stretch includes Princeton Beach-possibly the premier river boating and recreation destination in the Bi-State area, which is located immediately adjacent to the Village of Cordova. The Village invites you to come take a look at us and learn more. You'll be glad you did!
What is the Quad Cities?
The Quad-Cities is the name given to our cluster of cities along the Mississippi River. Actually, there are five main cities-Davenport and Bettendorf in Iowa and Rock Island, Moline, East Moline in Illinois- but "quad" sticks as the name.
If you count contiguous communities there are many more- LeClaire, Eldgridge and Blue Grass in Iowa, and Milan, Coal Valley, Port Byron, Carbon Cliff, Hampton, Hillsdale, Rapids City, Andalusia, Silvis, Colona and Cordova in Illinois.
