Des Moines is the capital and the most populous city in the U.S. Let the collections at John Wayne Birthplace & Museum and Salisbury House capture your imagination. Venture out of the city with trips to Ackerman Winery (in Amana), Cedar Falls Main Street (in Cedar Falls) and Fireside Winery (in Marengo). And it doesn't end there: explore and take pictures at Iowa State Fairgrounds, stroll around Pappajohn Sculpture Park, explore the world behind art at Des Moines Art Center, and try to win big at Prairie Meadows.

To find photos, more things to do, reviews, and other tourist information, read our Des Moines trip planner .

In June, plan for daily highs up to 84°F, and evening lows to 64°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 13th (Thu) early enough to travel back home.
