Moving to Des Moines

Though a large portion of the American Midwest is rural, urban centers such as Des Moines present many exciting opportunities for companies, employees, and students. The city has enjoyed steady population growth since the early 2000s, reaching just more than 215,000 as of 2015. Wells Fargo is the largest employer in the area, followed by other companies in the healthcare, financial services, and insurance industries. The city is also home to Drake University, Des Moines University, and several other higher education institutions.

Des Moines is also a fantastic place to be if you like day trips or stay-cations. The city is central to several popular urban destinations, including Minneapolis, Milwaukee, Chicago, Kansas City, and St. Louis. You can also take a short trip west to Omaha, which is on the Nebraska-Iowa border and known for its roots in United States pioneer history. If you prefer to explore in town, Downtown Des Moines and East Village are two of the most popular neighborhoods you can visit or settle down in. 

East Village is hugely popular with millennials, singles and artists, given its many shops, award-winning restaurants, loft-style apartment living and accessibility. The entire neighborhood is easily accessible by bike, public transit, and car.

If you’re looking for more of a family-friendly neighborhood in Des Moines, you’ll want to check out Western Gateway. With quiet residential streets, great schools and a 13-acre green space home to an outdoor museum, your family will love this area.
