Des Moines is the capital and the most populous city in the U.S. Change things up with these side-trips from Des Moines: Herbert Hoover Presidential Library and Museum (in West Branch), John Wayne Birthplace & Museum (in Winterset) and Historical Village, Vermeer Windmill & Scholte House (in Pella). There's much more to do: ponder the world of politics at Capitol Building, cool off at Adventureland, learn about wildlife with up-close encounters at Blank Park Zoo, and grab your bike and head to High Trestle Trail.
