Welcome to Des Moines

Des Moines, meaning 'of the monks' not 'in the corn' as the surrounding fields might suggest, is Iowa's fast-growing capital. The city has an amazing state capitol building, buzzing enclaves like the East Village and one of the nation's best state fairs. Pause for a night, but then get out and see the rest of Iowa
