The LeClaire Information Center (LIC), operated by the LeClaire Office of Tourism, is located at the corner of Cody Road and Jones Street in downtown LeClaire (122 N. Cody Road). Since the Grand Opening on August 3rd 2012, over 17,500 guests have been welcomed, including tourists, LeClaire residents and potential business owners. Information about LeClaire attractions and businesses, business opportunities, and other items of interest has been shared. Out-of-town visitors quickly recognize LeClaire’s hospitality and appreciate receiving information that isn't available from the Internet or a GPS system. The volunteers enjoy sharing what makes LeClaire a unique community in the Quad Cities area.

On Thursday, September 19th from 4-6pm, the public is invited to an Open House celebrating the center's “First Anniversary.” The event will include light refreshments and the opportunity to discover what the LIC offers residents and tourists. The festivities will conclude with a short program honoring our volunteers at 5:30pm.

Cindy Bruhn, LeClaire Tourism Manager, says, “We are always looking for additional volunteers. Plus, Pleasant Valley High School students (accompanied by a parent) can apply their volunteer hours to the school's “service learning” requirement for graduation.” Training (for students and adults) only takes about an hour and volunteers are able to schedule hours through online scheduling software. Please contact Cindy at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it or 563-289-4242, ext. 1135, if you are interested in volunteering or would like more information.

Please join us for the Open House or stop in and visit us any time. The LIC is open from 10am – 4pm Monday – Saturday, Noon-4pm on Sunday.

Volunteer Recognition, 5:30pm 


LeClaire, Iowa is located at a point where the Mississippi River makes a sharp bend to the southwest. LeClaire's historic bond with the river and the bold men who tamed the Upper Rapids is still visible in the homes and buildings they left behind. On May 7, 1979, their homes were recognized as part of the nine-block Cody Road Historic District listed on the National Register of Historic Places. LeClaire’s other attractions include the Buffalo Bill Museum/Lone Star Stern Wheeler, Mississippi River Distilling Co., and Antique Archaeology, home of the American Pickers.
