Review of Des Moines, Iowa

Living in Des Moines as a teen
Star Rating - 12/21/2020
Des Moines is a ok and pretty quiet place but as a teen it could be dramatic because Des Moines do have is fair or violents places to avoid in Des Moines would be the north close to west side of Des Moines crimes do happen around those area and as a teen walking around at night around drake I could feel unease sometimes I’ve even been assaulted or hurt for apparently no reason or petty reasons if your thinking of moving to Des Moines and have a teen or kids Des Moines is fairly dry but I don’t recommend you sending them to Hoover or Roosevelt high school or even some of the middle schools I’ve even seen a kid got stabbed or a all out brawl at Hoover high school and the shooting at the home coming game this is a honest review I would lie or anything to others Des Moines seem ok and calming and it is but as a teen here I have to say is not the best experience and I used to live in la so I never expected a place I didn’t even know exist to be like this.
