Review of Des Moines, Iowa

Parka and meat loaf

Good for the old that like slow pace and cheap buffets. Also good for non-descript mid-westerners that don't like a lot of action. No nightlife or mountains to hike on. Flat terrain with cows and cornfields. No trees, flat grasslands only. People tucked in to bed at 10 Pm on Friday so if you're out looking for fun you'll be the only one. Driving in your car past a certain hour will profile you to be pulled over by the police who will think you're up to no good. Old guys will like it cause there's nothing going on and that's how they like it. The housing very inane and uninteresting. Very mid-western. Bring a Parka and golashes and you will be on your way to fitting in.

No trees? There are more trees in the city of Des Moines than the entire state of Nevada. You guessed correctly about no mountains though, but lots of hills.
