The Best things To Do In Des Moines, IA.

There are many surprises across our fabulous country and Des Moines is not to be overlooked when researching hidden gems! Des Moines is a perfect blend between the old and the new, with solid traditional elements and new contemporary additions.

The Perfect Size
Large enough to garner national attention, small enough that you can bike from one side to the other, Des Moines first off is the capital of Iowa. The Capitol Building, found downtown in the heart of the city, is one of the finest in the country and worthy of a visit. When downtown you can also visit several stunning museums and the contemporary Pappajohn Sculpture Park. The downtown also offers a first class Farmers Market and is the home to Meredith Publishing, the producers of Better Homes and Gardens and Midwest Living to name just two of many titles. You will find a beautiful “tasting” garden
on their campus.

In the summer months you can take in a baseball game at Principal Park, home to the Iowa Cubs. Many of the World Series Champions have played numerous games here. Watching a home game in the summer will give you a chance to see first class baseball and the stars of the future. In the winter months you can visit the Wells Fargo arena and watch the Iowa Barnstormers indoor football team or catch a basketball game or two. These facilities are second to none!

The Blank Park Zoo is yet another diamond in the rough with a surprising collection of wildlife from around the world. Des Moines also offers the Botanical Gardens and several very interesting Science Museums downtown. As mentioned earlier, you can bike from one side to the other on a beautiful network of trails. You can also visit Gray’s Lake or the Saylorville Dam recreational area which offers first class boating and fishing opportunities.

Des Moines is recognized as the Insurance Capital of the Unites States. This industry alone has brought many employees to the metro area. With that comes retail support. You will find the largest mall in Iowa in Jordan Creek. Many national brands can be found here under one roof. There are first class malls and other free standing outlets scattered around the metro on all points of the compass. Don’t like malls? Then visit the East Village with its thriving network of antique shops, art galleries and ethnic restaurants.

Midwest Culture
No matter what you do in Des Moines you will be treated to the warm embrace of the culture of the Midwest. Customer service is second to none in all industries. Be good to yourself. Spend some time in this beautiful gem of the Midwest, Des Moines, Iowa!
