Moline is one of the Quad Cities in Western Illinois.

Understand

Moline (pronounced /moʊˈliːn/, moe-LEEN) is a city located in Rock Island County, Illinois, United States, with an estimated population of 43,016 in 2007.[1] Moline is one of the Quad Cities, along with neighboring East Moline and Rock Island in Illinois and the cities of Davenport and Bettendorf in Iowa. The corporate headquarters of Deere & Company is located in Moline, as is Quad City International Airport, Black Hawk College, and the Quad Cities campus of Western Illinois University. Moline is a retail hub for the Illinois Quad Cities, as Southpark Mall and numerous big-box shopping plazas are located in the city. In the mid-1990s, the city undertook major efforts to revitalize its central business district, which had declined after suburban growth and retail changes after the 1950s and 1960s. Today, Moline's downtown again serves as one of the civic and recreational hubs of the Quad Cities; many events take place at the 12,000-seat i wireless Center (formerly known as The MARK of the Quad Cities) and at John Deere Commons.

Get in

Moline is located approximately 165 miles west of Chicago and midway between Minneapolis to the north and St. Louis to the South. 37.4 million people reside within a 300-mile radius of Moline, which comprises almost 13% of the nation’s population. Moline and its neighbors help form the largest urban concentration between St. Louis and Minneapolis along the Mississippi River. Major interstates I-80, I-88 and I-74 provide ready access in all directions, making the region a preferred location for logistics and distribution facilities.

The Quad City International Airport, the third largest airport in Illinois is proudly located in Moline and serves the regional Quad City area. Currently, five airlines offer non-stop flights to eight cities, including Atlanta, Chicago, Dallas-Ft. Worth, Denver, Detroit, Memphis, Minneapolis/St. Paul, and Orlando, with hundreds of domestic and international connections available beyond those cities. On-site fueling and ground handling services are available.
