Des Moines. The S's Are Silent.
Our City Says "Welcome!".

Greater Des Moines is 100% open and ready to welcome you safely and responsibly. Here is information on venues, attractions, things to do and other services. 

Our businesses are implementing new sanitation practices, safety policies and expanded outdoor options to ensure a great, relaxing experience. Our facilities, visitor attractions, and restaurants have no capacity limits and we can host meetings with social distancing guidelines in place.  


  • As of August 26, 2020, City of Des Moines Mayor Frank Cownie issued a mask mandate for the city requiring masks in businesses, including restaurants.

Due to the ever-evolving nature of COVID-19, we recommend contacting businesses directly to confirm hours and availability in advance of your visit.
