Des Moines, Iowa is situated at the cross roads of I-80 and I-35 and boasts of no toll roads or traffic, which for any big city native will come as a delightful treat. It's recommended to have a Car Rental in Des Moines because the public transportation is limited. If you're coming in through Des Moines International Airport, you can pick up your Car Rental right after baggage claim.
As the capitol of Iowa, you shouldn't miss the Des Moines Capitol Building. The building itself is rather ornate, the glistening gold leaf dome and detailed woodwork inside is worth the free admission price. Tours are held daily and if you need to stretch your legs after a long road trip, we recommend climbing the 298 steps to the to the balcony for a birds-eye view.
The city hosts events year-round including the Iowa State Fair and the Des Moines Arts Festival in the summer. This festival draws artists and art loves from around the country to experience art, entertainment, and food. Des Moines also is home to athletic teams in almost every sport including Hockey, Soccer, Arena Football, Baseball and Basketball. Additionally, the city also holds championship level tournaments for all levels.
