Welcome to Greater Des Moines.

Catch the latest Greater Des Moines news, things to do and insider information.


Greater Des Moines is full of unexpected delights waiting to be discovered. While some cities compress the nature of their character into one easily marketable element, Greater Des Moines is different. The essence of Greater Des Moines can’t be boiled down to one thing, but rather the sense of discovery and finding fulfillment in the most unlikely of places. Our authenticity isn’t contrived, but is rooted in our people, which makes every experience ring true; whether you’re hopping on one of our many miles of bike trails, taking a selfie with the Nomade sculpture at Pappajohn Sculpture Park or breezing through our Brew Moines app.  

We're changing perceptions one microbrewery and one Broadway show at a time. So be yourself, be different, take a look around and catch what you've been missing.
