Living in Downtown Des Moines


owntown Des Moines is a great place to live and play. I have lived down there for more than two years and I may just stay. Things are a little messy right now with all of the bridge updates and construction, but if you love a life full of action and options, downtown is a great place to be. Now is a smart time to buy down here too, because once all of the various projects are complete, purchase prices and lease rates will likely head north fast.

I utilize everything that living downtown has to offer including trails, food, entertainment, events, and it is quite convenient and a quick commute anywhere in the metro.

Downtown insights and secret information! Downtown Farmers Market – it’s coming, so here’s my advice….get there early (9:00 a.m. at the latest) to avoid parking frustration and a 1/2 mile to one mile walk. The garage at 3rd/Court is best, but only takes cash during special events and charges $5 cash only, not the usual $1/hr. Science Center Parking Garage on 5th Street is close, too.
