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: Waterloo (Waterloo Center for the Arts, National Wrestling Hall of Fame - Dan Gable Museum, &more), Airpower Museum (in Ottumwa) and Honey Creek State Park (in Moravia). There's still lots to do: get a sense of history and politics at Capitol Building, catch a live event at Iowa State Fairgrounds, admire the natural beauty at Greater Des Moines Botanical Garden, and get curious at Science Center of Iowa & Blank IMAX Dome Theater.

To find traveler tips, other places to visit, and tourist information, read our Des Moines sightseeing planner.

In March in Des Moines, expect temperatures between 49°F during the day and 30°F at night. Finish your sightseeing early on the 1st (Sat) to allow enough time to travel back home.
