Buzzard Billy's

by Jimma about Buzzard Billy's Flying Carp Cafe

Great atmosphere and food. I understand they have a few of these restaurants scattered throughout the U.S. The place is decorated with musical memorabilia. The Bayou Platter (you can split it with your dining companion if you're not a big eater)

Typical Midwestern Mid Size Town

by riorich55

"An Introduction"

Why do I say a typical Midwestern Mid Size Town? Well for one thing it seems like a lot of the mid size towns I've been to this summer on business, Louisville, Indianapolis, Sioux Falls and now Des Moines have very heavy medical districts right in the downtown area. I had the occasion to get inside one of the largest ones in Des Moines this week (no I wasn't injured, we were just there to repair a vending machine while trying out the new technician handheld computer) and was impressed by the newness and size.

Des Moines has always been known as the Insurance Capitol of the midwest and the Triple A Baseball Field in town (which is where future Chicago Cubs come from) recently had a new park built with a large infusion of naming rights cash from Principle Insurance Group which is HQ'd in Des Moines.

The picture which I'm using to highlight Des Moines is another recent addition to the downtown area. This is their Sculpture Park which I found out about by sitting next to a young lady on a recent plane ride from Chicago to Des Moines who happened to work for the Des Moines Art Museum (more about the Sculpture Park in a tip).

"Iowa State Capitol"

Des Moines is the state capitol of Iowa and has one of the prettiest state capitol buildings of all the 50 United States. The state capitol building and other governmental buildings are located just about 1 mile east from the downtown area. I had never really seen the Capitol Building up close. I've seen the gold dome in the distance from Interstate 80 which passes along the northern edge of Des Moines, but if you want to get a true sense of the beauty you need to get off the beaten path (Interstate 80) and venture into the town for a look.

Again, I'll create a separate tip page for the State Capitol to give you a little more insite.
