Des Moines is a highly underrated city. The city has done an amazing job refurbishing the downtown area into a hot bed of amazing cuisine, architecture, arts, restaurants and entertainment. Foodies will love all the world class dining options and the funky little dives that have some of the best food you'll ever try. Des Moines is no longer a fly over city. The New York Times named it the hippest city in the United States. Stop in and see what the buzz is about!
