Des Moines Travel Guide

The capital of the state of Iowa, Des Moines is a major commercial center, a city that abruptly rises tall amongst the surrounding cornfields. Politically also, Des Moines is a critical city as the U.S Presidential race begins here. Des Moines is also famous for being the third largest center in the world for the insurance business. However, the city is not simply about business or politics. There are some good museums and some great restaurants here. The city has a substantial population of young professionals and many ethnic groups who have made this their home.

The people of Des Moines sure have penchant for potato chips – they munch more potato chips per capita than any other metro area in the USA – about 11 lbs a year !
