Des Moines Vacations

A big city with a small-town heart; that's Des Moines, the capital city of America's heartland, in a nutshell. If you want to soak up all the ambiance of this Midwestern gem, Des Moines vacation packages will take care of the logistics so you can spend your holiday enjoy this thriving city.

Major Attractions

You can't visit Iowa's capital city without visiting the distinguished capital building and its iconic 23-karat-gold leafed dome. Bring a picnic and linger on the lush, shady grounds. Another historical attraction not to miss is Terrace Hill. The opulent circa-1869 governor's residence is a shining example of Victorian architecture. Iowa is known for corn and other farm-fresh delights. Sample them at Des Moines' downtown farmer's market. Be sure to come with an appetite. After your meal, head to the Blank Park Zoo, Adventureland Amusement Park, Jasper Winery, or the Greater Des Moines Botanical Garden. Whatever your interests, you'll find attractions to pique them in Des Moines. Should you rent a car in Des Moines? If you're staying for more than a weekend, definitely. While there are public transit options in Des Moines, most residents drive. The money you save buying one of the many affordable Des Moines hotel packages may even pay for the cost of your car rental.

Festivals and Events

Whether you stay in five-star luxury hotels or cheap hotels in Des Moines, you'll have access to a concierge--or at least local employees--who can fill you in on special events occurring during your stay. The Des Moines Art Festival in June, Iowa State Fair in August, Fall Festival, Wonder of Words Festival, and Winter Blues Festival are local favorites.

Des Moines is a smart holiday destination and Travelocity offers smart ways to stretch your vacation budget. Des Moines packages bundle airfare and hotel to save you as much as $537. With that kind of savings, you may decide to extend your Midwestern trip.
