Like every other city Ames has both good and bad points. The good points are: low cost of living, very friendly people, lots of outdoor activities and quite a few events sponsored by the university, its got a great coop and farmers' market in the summer, it seems like a great place to raise a family, the campus is beautiful. The bad points: it can be a bit dull if you're single and not college age, contrary to what has been said previously ISU in not considered a "good" school maybe if you're outside of the school, but academics know better, and if you travel a lot DSM is not a hub for any airline, so you can't fly directly anywhere, there are only a couple of truly good restaurants, there's not a lot of political/religious diversity as Iowa is mostly white Protestant.
