Former Rhythm City riverboat set to depart Davenport

DAVENPORT, Iowa - The last remnant of the 25-year floating casino era should disappear from Davenport on Friday, November 25, 2016.

Rhythm City's former riverboat is set to sail away around noon on Friday.

The boat will be put through some tests before it takes off.

Plans call for the boat to move to Tennessee, where it's set to become a floating restaurant.

Rhythm City opened its new land-based casino in June 2016.

Davenport is considering what to do with the available space on the riverfront.
