Things To Do When Visiting Des Moines IA

So you have decided to take your family for a trip to Des Moines IA and naturally, you would want to be sure that everybody would have a great time. This is why you have to look into fun things you and your family can do while you are in the city. You can check out the Fourth of July fireworks display during a performance of Yankee Doodle Pops and get there early so you can get good seats as there would be a lot of other people watching the show. If you are visiting with friends, you can go to the Hessen Haus for the “boot”; a huge glass shoe filled to the rim with authentic German beer and if you ace saying Bitburger Pilsner five times, fast – you need another “boot”.

To relax after a long day of sightseeing, take your significant other for a couple’s massage at Sahar’s in West Des Moines. You can also drop by the Iowa Beef Steakhouse for a mouth watering steak dinner that you cook over hardwood charcoal. If you like Mexican fare, you may want to check out what Tasty Tacos can offer. Take a bike to Saylorville Lake and enjoy the sights in the area. When you are in Des Moines IA for the first time, make sure that you will not miss seeing a Friday midnight showing of “The Rocky Horror Picture Show” over at Billy Joe’s. You could also check out some great eats at the World Pork Expo. You can also check out Jimmy’s American Cafe for a bucket or three of Coronas and much on chicken fingers. If, after two buckets of Coronas you are still up for a Spam and sauerkraut pizza at 3:00 in the morning, you can head on over the Big Tomato Pizza for very early morning munchies.

There are however, a few tips you have to keep in mind before you start this vacation of yours. To start with, you have to be certain that you are going to check out places; eat in restaurants and plan activities that everybody you are traveling with would enjoy. This involves considering who you would be traveling with. If you are going to travel with your family, you may want to check out family themed activities and restaurants to be sure that your children would have a good time. If you want to make sure that everyone traveling with you has a good time and a truly memorable vacation, you would go out of your way to plan activities that would best suit everyone. Plan ahead of time to make the adjustments to your itinerary if needed.
