Overview of Downtown Des Moines

If cold, snow and corn come to mind when you think about Des Moines, IA, replace that image with high-end lofts, a thriving art scene and world-class restaurants. The capital city is home to giants in the insurance, publishing, and financial industries. Located Downtown, Wells Fargo Financial, Principal Life Insurance Company, Nationwide Insurance (Allied), and Meredith Corporation contribute to economic stability and the low unemployment rate. Forbes, Kiplinger and Market Watch Magazine consistently call out Des Moines as one the best places to live in the country.

Apartments in Downtown Des Moines

A variety of rental properties are available in Downtown Des Moines; including apartments, condos, townhouses, and single family homes. For the most part, Des Moines' rent is affordable with averages lower than many suburbs. The trend of renovating industrial buildings to create upscale lofts means higher rent prices. Some of the extra expense is absorbed through amenities like laundry facilities and heated underground parking. New condos and high rise apartments in Downtown Des Moines contrast with older single family homes.

Cultural Venues, Entertainment and Eateries in Downtown Des Moines

Visitors from around the globe travel to Downtown Des Moines to experience world-class art in the John and Mary Pappajohn Sculpture Park. Worth more than 40 million dollars, the sculptures are displayed in Western Gateway Park. The Des Moines Art Center hosts exhibits and remains a popular art venue in its own right sponsoring a yearly arts festival Downtown.

Large facilities in Downtown Des Moines host a variety of events ranging from the AAA I Cubs baseball team at Principal Park, to celebrity icons in concert at Wells Fargo. If you are looking for diversity, check out the Blazing Saddle, a gay bar featuring quality female impersonators. A live music venue, The House of Bricks on Grand Avenue gives local bands exposure. They attract unannounced performers like local artist Corey Taylor and his band, Slip Knot. More like a smaller version of the state fair than a food market, the weekly Saturday Farmer's Market offers produce from local farmers, crafts, artwork, activities and much more.

The Downtown neighborhood serves up world-class dishes at high end restaurants like 801 Chophouse and Centro. Fong's Pizza, Zombie Burger and local breweries are a few popular eateries in the area.
