Living in Des Moines: Your new favorite city
Besides being a great place to live and work, Des Moines is a vibrant city with communities from all walks of life. Ethnic food and grocery stores, some of the best restaurants, and plenty of year-round events ensure that there’s always something for everyone.
“I am from West Des Moines, born and raised. I absolutely love the Des Moines area. It is a growing city, as new restaurants, new concerts, and new events are always popping up everywhere! Des Moines is surrounded by many smaller suburbs, and it's also a drivable distance to Kansas City, Chicago, and Minneapolis for a fun weekend trip to take your mind off school for a bit!”
