100 Things to Do in Des Moines Before You Die
Nestled smack dab in the center of the Midwest where two of the longest interstates in America meet sits Des Moines.
Iowa's capital city offers a small town feel with big city fun, with a great food scene, local breweries that welcome your four-legged friends, miles of bike trails with beautiful scenery, and tons of art and history. 100 Things to Do in Des Moines will help guide you to all the fun places to play, explore, learn, and eat in this community-driven city. Skate around at the largest open skatepark in the nation. Take a tour of the only five-domed capitol in the United States. Feast on steak at a Des Moines chophouse, but don't forget to kick off your day with a hearty breakfast, where you might just run into Aquaman. Find the best view of the city or navigate miles of the city through temperature-controlled skywalks. Pet an alpaca, then challenge yourself at the state's largest indoor climbing facility.
