Situated at the banks of the Mississippi River, right at the only place where this mighty river flows from east to west, Muscatine is the place to be if you want to discover what Eastern Iowa has to offer. The rolling plains of the region great for agriculture are the reason why the city is nicknamed “The Watermelon Capital of the World.” It is also known as “The Pearl of the Mississippi” because of the factory that has produced pearl buttons from mussel shells for over a century. Whether you choose to spend the day at one of its parks or find a restaurant with the view of the river, you won’t regret renting an RV in Muscatine.
