If you’re looking to see some exotic wildlife, an approximately 13-minute car ride will take you and the family to Blank Park Zoo.

Des Moines, Iowa: Eclectic City amid Midwest Scenery

Iowa’s capital city lies along the Des Moines River in the center of the state. The brick-paved streets of the eclectic East Village are lined with art galleries, trendy cafés, and historical buildings. Larger entertainment establishments include the Greater Des Moines Botanical Garden, Adventureland Park, and the Community Choice Credit Union Convention Center—where, in 1982, Ozzy Osbourne infamously bit the head off a bat.

For outdoor fun, there’s Jester Park, which encompasses a golf course and 8 miles of hiking trails. Bison and elk herds roam the land just as they did 200 years ago; you can watch the animals from viewing stations or check out accompanying art exhibits.
