  • Theatre Cedar Rapids
    Voted Best Theater of 2010 and 2011 in KCRG-TV9's CityVoter poll, the community collective of Theatre Cedar Rapids gathers accolades as it grows. The seeds of the company were planted in 1925, when a tiny troupe of thespians played its heart out to audiences of only 30. The theater now reaches more than 50,000 eastern Iowans with its education programs and full seasons of musicals, comedies, and dramas. Although its Iowa Theater Building home has been recently refurbished with new sound and light systems, the theater maintains the charm of its 1920s vaudeville and movie-house origin with a functioning Rhinestone Barton theater organ, 550-seat capacity, and absence of holographic ushers.

  • Creed Bratton
    Before it was the Adler, Davenport's flagship theater was known as the Radio-Keith-Orpheum. Built in 1931 to include the Mississippi Hotel, the movie house was a picture of extravagance: gold leaf on the ceiling, crystal light fixtures, black ebony and marble detailing. Although the rise of multiplex theaters made it impractical for the venue to continue lighting its silver screen and hosting shadow-puppet contests, it transformed into a hotspot for rock concerts and road shows. Today, renovated to its original glory, the art-deco space is once again a go-to spot for Broadway shows, standup, and live music.

    Nominated for Best Family Restaurant on CityVoter's 2011 A-List, Steamboat Garden has been serving up affordable family food since 1933. Today, guests at the boat-shaped restaurant can peer through its bright red portholes to watch as the friendly staff fills tables with steaks and seafood, breaded pork loin sandwiches known as Tug Boats, and seven incarnations of a signature hamburger that has been a Falls Avenue favorite since the 1940s. Between bites, diners sip old-fashioned floats made with 1919 draft root beer and then send instant photos of their empty plates to mom by accessing the restaurant's WiFi with a laptop or aluminum foil helmet.
