What is one of your favorite things about Greater Des Moines?
I love the size of greater Des Moines and that we have so many great attractions, organizations, and amenities that are all within a short drive from anywhere around the city. I enjoy walking around downtown, trying new restaurants and taking pictures with all the different murals.
