When you plan to take your family on a trip to Des Moines IA, you need to make sure that everybody would have a great time. Meaning, you should do research on what fun things you and your family can do while you are vacationing in the city. You can check out the Fourth of July fireworks display during a performance of Yankee Doodle Pops and get there early so you can get good seats as there would be a lot of other people watching the show. If you are visiting with friends, you can go to the Hessen Haus for the “boot”; a huge glass shoe filled to the rim with authentic German beer and if you ace saying Bitburger Pilsner five times, fast – you need another “boot”.
To relax after a long day of sightseeing, take your significant other for a couple’s massage at Sahar’s in West Des Moines. If you like the idea of cooking your own steak, make reservations at the Iowa Beef Steakhouse where you can grill T-bone steaks larger than Frisbees over hardwood charcoal. If you are into Mediterranean food fare, you can sample original flour tacos at Tasty Tacos. You can also go biking and enjoy the sights at Saylorville Lake. If you are going to visit Des Moines IA for the first time, do not miss seeing a Friday midnight showing of “The Rocky Horror Picture Show” at Billy Joe’s Pitcher Show. You can go eat, eat and eat some more at the World Pork Expo. Then head over at Jimmy’s American Cafe for a bucket or two of Corona beer. If, after two buckets of Coronas you are still up for a Spam and sauerkraut pizza at 3:00 in the morning, you can head on over the Big Tomato Pizza for very early morning munchies.
Before you do visit Des Moines IA and start to check out these places and eat and drink your way through the end of your vacation, you need to keep a few tips in mind. First of all, you need to be sure that you are going to plan activities and visit sites that everyone in your traveling party would enjoy. This means you have to take into consideration who you are going to travel with. On the other hand, if you are traveling with your friends, you have your choice of bars and a lot of entertainment for adults. If you want to make sure that everyone traveling with you has a good time and a truly memorable vacation, you would go out of your way to plan activities that would best suit everyone. Make sure that you are going to make arrangements early so you can have room for any adjustments later on.
