Traveling?

February 22, 2011 —

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 Hotels.com 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.

Where do you like to go to get away?

Proud daughter and patient of DMU alumni, Courtney knows, first-hand, that Des Moines University is doing a world of good. A fan of all outdoor festivals, fruity drinks and nearly all edibles, she has a hard time narrowing down her list of favorite places to go and things to do but lists the Iowa State Fair as an all-time fave. She loves her 8-minute commute to DMU from Urbandale, a suburb of Des Moines. She and husband Tyler are owned by three large dogs, Tonka, Tucker and Tank.

    Lake Panorama on 4th July is awesome. Get on a boat and drop anchor to watch the fireworks
