                    Ames, IA

                    Overview of Ames

                    Ames is best known for being home to Iowa State University, but the city in central Iowa offers its residents a high quality of life with big-city amenities. The population of Ames is 58,965 according to the 2010 census, which includes students attending Iowa State University who live in Ames throughout the school year. When Ames was incorporated in 1870, it had only 844 inhabitants. The city quickly grew into a thriving metropolitan area within Boone County after Iowa Agricultural College and Model Farm was established as a Land-Grant College. Ames apartments for rent provide easy access to the Iowa State campus, and are also conveniently located near the historic downtown district.

                    Living in Ames, IA

                    The main street cultural district in downtown Ames is a popular location for students and families, and is easily accessible from Ames apartments throughout the city. The district hosts numerous arts and community festivals throughout the year such as Tune in to Main Street, ArtWalk, Fourth of July Parade and Festival, and MusicWalk. It also includes more than 50 locally owned boutique retail shops and restaurant.

                    City residents can stay active by enjoying more than 700 acres of parks maintained by Ames Parks and Recreation. The parks department also oversees the Furman Aquatic Center, Ada Hayden Heritage Park and Homewood Golf Course, all of which are easily accessible from Ames rentals. The Ames City Auditorium hosts performances by local and national acts, and is also available for rental by Ames residents. Ames is emerging as a bicycle-friendly city: There are currently 22 miles of bicycle trails in the city for residents to enjoy in the spring, summer and fall.

                    Ames Work and Study

                    Ames is home to a diverse mix of employers that enjoy its strong local economy and centralized location within Iowa.

Smart Energy programs offer rebates to residents who wish to make energy-efficient home improvements. The cost of living in Ames is lower than the national average, and rentals have remained an affordable choice even though they typically have low vacancy rates since University of Iowa students often look for off-campus housing within the city.
