Des Moines is the capital and the most populous city in the U.S. Start off your visit on the 13th (Fri): ponder the world of politics at Capitol Building, meet the residents at Blank Park Zoo, and then stroll around Pappajohn Sculpture Park. Here are some ideas for day two: explore the landscape on two wheels at High Trestle Trail and then get in on the family fun at Adventureland.

To find other places to visit, where to stay, ratings, and more tourist information, read our Des Moines online trip maker .

In December, daytime highs in Des Moines are 37°F, while nighttime lows are 22°F. Cap off your sightseeing on the 14th (Sat) early enough to travel back home.
