I know spring break fever is probably hitting folks about now while the sky is gray and and the grass is brown. Sometimes just putting your feet up in a different place helps clear your head and refreshes you! It doesn’t have to be an extravagant trip or week-long excursion.

Des Moines is centrally located at the intersection of I-80 and I-35 which makes it perfect when you want a weekend away. Of course you can fly somewhere if you have enough time but you can also take Megabus to a new city from Des Moines, or just jump in the car and explore a new place. Maybe check out or Travelocity and find a cheap room in Minneapolis and spend a day at Ikea or Mall of America. Or head south and eat some K.C. bbq, head west and shop Omaha or east for Chi-town! Or you could stay right in Iowa and check into a B&B somewhere, rent a place on a Clear Lake, Lake Panorama or Okoboji.
