Midwest Living magazine is out with their list of the 50 best things in the Midwest and Des Moines has landed two spots on the list! The East Village has been named best renovated neighborhood in all of the Midwest. The article explains that there once was just one bright shining object East of downtown and that was the Capitol building. Things certainly have changed. There's a brand new bright and shiny neighborhood East of downtown! We love our East Village!!!
Also, on the list is best Culture - Public Art Collection - Pappajohn Sculpture Park. It's a pretty good list, if you're ready to make a road trip, there are some pretty great spots to check out!
