Des Moines Interesting : Michelin's recommendations

Bibendum

Straddling the V-shaped confluence of the Des Moines and Raccoon rivers, Iowa's politcal, governmental and economic capital city punctuates the surrounding farmlands. The city is one of the leading centers of the insurance industry, and its downtown Farmers Market (Saturday mornings from May to October) ranks among the best in the country. There's also an excellent fine art museum and several noteworthy historical homes. The Iowa State Fair, held here every year in August, epitomizes the rural Midwest: massive, friendly, wholesome, fattening and fun.
