Des Moines is the capital and the most populous city in the U.S. Change things up with these side-trips from Des Moines: Iowa City (World's Largest Wooden Nickel, University of Iowa, &more), West Branch (Herbert Hoover Presidential Library and Museum & Herbert Hoover National Historic Site) and Imes Covered Bridge (in Saint Charles). There's much more to do: get to know the resident critters at Blank Park Zoo, browse the eclectic array of goods at Downtown Farmers Market, walk around Gray's Lake Park, and admire the masterpieces at Des Moines Art Center.

To see maps, more things to do, reviews, and other tourist information, refer to the Des Moines trip itinerary planner.

May in Des Moines sees daily highs of °F and lows of °F at night. Finish your sightseeing early on the 1st (Mon) to allow enough time to travel back home.
