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 State Historical Museum. Change things up with these side-trips from Des Moines: Airpower Museum (in Ottumwa), Honey Creek State Park (in Moravia) and Waterloo (Waterloo Center for the Arts, National Wrestling Hall of Fame - Dan Gable Museum, &more). Plan for a day of cool, family-friendly fun on the 16th (Fri) at Adventureland. There's lots more to do: ponder the world of politics at Capitol Building, learn about wildlife with up-close encounters at Blank Park Zoo, take in nature's colorful creations at Greater Des Moines Botanical Garden, and take a stroll through East Village.

For where to stay, ratings, more things to do, and other tourist information, read Des Moines trip itinerary tool.

In March, plan for daily highs up to 49°F, and evening lows to 30°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 1st (Sat) early enough to travel back home.
