I've been lucky to do quite a bit of traveling the last couple weeks for work to places I've never seen before in the state. Last week, I found myself in downtown Davenport, along the Mississippi River.
Across the street from the conference center, an old theater has been restored into a community college.
Just a few blocks away, I discovered the River Music Museum. There was a coffee shop and restaurant on the first floor and a few historic displays on the second floor of this beautiful building.
To be honest, the museum was a little empty. There weren't many items on display. But I made sure to take pictures of the Jimmy Hendrix display for my husband, who is a huge fan. The display featured a "wah-wah" pedal the Hendrix may have left behind at a performance in Davenport.
Fun but strange fact: My husband used to "woo" me back in college by showing off how his guitar sounded when he used the wah-wah pedal. He's such a rock star!
Before I left, I wanted to see if I could find any barges floating down the Mississippi River. But I didn't get there at the right time.
Wish I could have stayed longer, but it was a long drive home. Beautiful day for a road trip, though.
