Not me, but I was just traveling through there. We had to go to SD for a wedding and came home on Rt. 80. We made a pit stop in Des Moines and checked out the Blank Point Zoo. It was cute. Nice country out there. Very pretty. Hot though (for my NY skin).

I grew up in south central Iowa and graduated from high school there. Then I crossed the state line to go to school at Kirksville, MO (Northeast Missouri State, now Truman University), and I've been in Missouri ever since!

But if we can sell our home, then we are moving back to Iowa to be closer to family.

I live in the suburbs surrounding the Des Moines Metro.

Isn't the Blank Park Zoo pretty cool for being in the middle of Iowa?

We currently live about 30 miles east of Des Moines, but I lived in the Iowa City area for 7 years.
We are currently in the process of moving to Oregon for my Dh's job. I am sad to leave Iowa, but since nearly all of our relatives live between Portland and Seattle, I am excited to be closer to home.

Sorry, I called it Blank Point. LOL
It was a really nice zoo. My kids liked the African area where the giraffes were. They also LOVED the train and I thought the indoor kids area was cool.

Your right about that! (the smell) And depending on which way you enter the city its not attractive at all. But it is getting better, but as long as the processing plant thingy is there so will the smell
