Des Moines Flights Guide
Des Moines is the largest city in Iowa, with a financial district that can be seen for miles from the surrounding plains. It began as an army fort and quickly grew into a city over the course of the 19th century.
Today the city is known for its state fair and for the Iowa Caucuses held during presidential elections. It is only appropriate, then, to begin a tour of the city at the Iowa State Capitol Building. All capitols in all states are constructed based on plans of the national capital in DC. Iowa’s is of particular note for its golden domes, and a tour can be organized to see the lush interior. The State Historical Society of Iowa Museum is the perfect place to learn about regional history from all the way back into the ice ages. Then, the Salisbury House period mansion speaks to a time of great wealth during the roaring 20s. The best place in town to get away from the roar of its modern movement is at the Robert D. Ray Asian Gardens with their picturesque setting along the river.
Des Moines International Airport is the city’s principle airport. US Airways, Delta, Southwest, United, Allegiant Air, American, Frontier and American Eagle all provide regular service to Des Moines.
