Des Moines

— 35 nights
Des Moines is the capital and the most populous city in the U.S. state of Iowa. Get a sense of the local culture at Salisbury House and Science Center of Iowa & Blank IMAX Dome Theater. Change things up with these side-trips from Des Moines: Waterloo (Waterloo Center for the Arts, National Wrestling Hall of Fame - Dan Gable Museum, &more), Honey Creek State Park (in Moravia) and Airpower Museum (in Ottumwa). Plan for a day of cool, family-friendly fun on the 16th (Fri) at Adventureland. There's lots more to do: get a sense of history and politics at Capitol Building, get to know the resident critters at Blank Park Zoo, admire the natural beauty at Greater Des Moines Botanical Garden, and identify plant and animal life at Neal Smith National Wildlife Refuge and Prairie Learning Center.
