You don't need the mayor to award you a key to the city in order to check out all the great reasons to make Ames and the Des Moines metro a place to call home.

Des Moines, IA

Des Moines, Iowa
Des Moines, a thriving metropolis of nearly 500,000 people, offers a diversified economy, affordable housing, nationally recognized schools, low crime, friendly people, and the list goes on! This city of well-trained heroes boasts entertainment and cultural opportunities galore. Blend in with the public at the downtown Farmer’s Market, snarf down a corn dog at the Iowa State Fair, cheer on the AHL hockey or AAA baseball teams to victory, morph into the past at the Living History Farms, soak up the symphony, test your superspeed at the Drake Relays, or have your say at the Iowa Caucuses… whatever you choose, be prepared to have a good time.

One of the perks of the superhero business is getting to know the city when you’re out protecting citizens and fighting for justice. With one of the nation’s shortest commute times, you’ll never get stuck in traffic when you’re hot on the tail of a nasty piece of work like our arch-enemy Dr. Discouragement.

Ames, Iowa

Ames, Iowa
With a population of over 50,000 people, the city of Ames flies under the radar, but don’t let their cool disguise fool you. 30 miles north of Des Moines and home to Iowa State University, Ames is a concentrated hub of culture and activities that have proven to interest even the most low-key superhero. Enjoy yearly community celebrations, an extensive outdoor recreation system, cuisine choices galore, an ever-changing schedule of concerts and performances, and a stellar school district jam packed with opportunities for kids to develop and grow into the superheroes they were born to be.
