    Top Neighborhoods in Des Moines, IA

    Downtown

    Downtown is where the action is in Des Moines. This area is very clean and has a lot of shopping, plenty of restaurants (both gourmet and ethnic, as well as chains), a happening night life, and is a center for business. Young professionals just starting out in their careers who prefer urban dwelling flock to the downtown area of Des Moines. It is a place to live where you can walk to everything, even work, and you are always in a good position to meet your neighbors and make new friends. The area is known for being safe, and it is one of the more popular neighborhoods among business executives and upper income families, as well.

    Beaverdale

    Characterized by brick homes and streets lined with trees, this planned community is designed to look like a cozy American neighborhood from the 1950's. It is very family-friendly, and the houses are reasonably prices for middle to upper middle income households. It is safe, and carefully monitored to make sure it says that way. Children will have no trouble meeting and making friends here, and the neighborhood is close to some of the best rated schools in Des Moines.

    West Des Moines

    This is an up and coming neighborhood with good schools and a strong sense of community. Many new residents to Des Moines are attracted to this neighborhood because of its clean look, its lack of an HOA, its safety, and its proximity to good schools and the major workplaces of the city. It isn't a long commute from West Des Moines to anywhere in town, and the close-knit, residential feel of the neighborhood is very attractive to those looking for a place to put down roots and call home for now or forever.

    Weather in Des Moines, IA

    Des Moines is in an interesting location. It is in almost the exact center of the United States, and is not near any large body of water. This gives it a unique weather pattern. It has hot summers that are not too humid. The winters are cold and very snowy. Blizzards are not uncommon. Humidity can rise in the spring, but usually becomes more reasonable in the summer, though hot prairie winds continue to blow throughout the state. Fall is cool with little rain, and a nice change in color on the leaves of the trees, though not as vibrant as in some other areas of the country. The good news is that summer and winter weather last longer than the other seasons, so if you really love the heat or really enjoy the snow, you will have ample time each year to experience both in Des Moines.
