Des Moines is the capital and the most populous city in the U.S. Explore Des Moines' surroundings by going to Madrid (Snus Hill Vineyard and Winery & Hindu Temple and Cultural Center of Iowa), Ames (Furman Aquatic Center, Reiman Gardens, & more) and Stuart (White Pole Road & Bonnie and Clyde Bank Robbery Site). Spend the 1st (Tue) exploring nature at George Wyth State Park. There's much more to do: get a sense of history and politics at Capitol Building, hunt for treasures at Downtown Farmers Market, explore the world behind art at Salisbury House, and walk around Pappajohn Sculpture Park.

To find where to stay, maps, photos, and tourist information, use the Des Moines driving holiday website .

In August, daytime highs in Des Moines are 84°F, while nighttime lows are 65°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 12th (Sat) early enough to travel back home.
