Best known as the birthplace of acclaimed novelist Bill Bryson, Des Moines is a much maligned city on account of the perception that it is a very dull place to live. However having been rated by Forbes as the ‘Best Place for Business’ in 2010 and the #1 among ‘America’s Best Cities for Young Professionals’ in 2011, as well as being crowned the ‘Greenest city for Women’ in the country by Self Magazine it is now a place definitely on the up. Though it might lack the pizzazz of many other American cities for the visitor there is more than enough sites and attractions to keep you entertained. These include a number of museums, galleries and art centers, the Iowa State Capitol Building, The Des Moines Botanical Center and Adventureland Park.
All things considered there is a decent selection of Des Moines hotels to choose from although none of them target the luxury end of the scale.
