Ankeny is a city in Polk County, Iowa, United States. Change things up with these side-trips from Ankeny: John Wayne Birthplace & Museum (in Winterset), La Vida Loca Winery (in Indianola) and Reiman Gardens (in Ames). The adventure continues: explore the landscape on two wheels at High Trestle Trail, get a sense of history and politics at Capitol Building, walk around Pappajohn Sculpture Park, and learn about wildlife with up-close encounters at Blank Park Zoo.
