Des Moines is the capital city in Iowa, with so many diverse & incredible neighborhoods within... it would be a large task to list every single one. We will 'highlight' a few, along with some of their best attributes!

** Beaverdale ~ Recognized for distinctive appearance of its brick homes, the Beaverdale Neighborhood attracts families due to the traits appealing to early suburbanites who moved here; well-built traditional style homes, tree-lined streets, and closeness to restaurants (Christopher's restaurant & GoodSons are a couple of the locals top picks), shopping, work, and parks (3 city parks within 50+ acres of parkland). There are 8 K-12 schools & 1 private school in immediate area. Fun fact: Beaverdale is known for their neighborhood's bragging rights on home Christmas lighting displays!

** Oak Park, Highland Park & Union Park ~ Neighborhoods in North Des Moines, that have something in common to boast about... the upcoming Riviera Stage (outdoor music venue) in Riverview Park, along with an improved Amusement area for children & much more! These neighborhoods are close in proximity with many gems: Captain Roy's, Birdland area in Union Park - GREAT entertainment on the river; Chuck's Restaurant, a 'staple' in the Higland Park neighborhood since 1956 (undergoing renovations now!); Slow Down Coffee Shop in Highland Park is a MUST; Des Moines Mercantile, a cherished retail shop in Oak Park! 

** Sherman Hill ~ Des Moines' oldest neighborhood, lined with astoundingly beautiful historic homes, settled into hilly streets next to the Downtown & Ingersoll areas. Smokey Row Coffee Shop is a gem for studying, game playing, food & drink; Aposto at the Scala House, fine dining in a historic home;  Gateway Market, cultural varieties in a small market with a lot to offer; Lua Brewing, local brewery with a outdoor area... all of it makes you smile!

** Waveland Park ~ A generously sized neighborhood in Des Moines that offers a lot to their residents. Waveland Park is one of the best places to live in Iowa, offering residents a dense suburban feel but with most residents owning their homes. Waveland Park Golf Course is a stunning favorite in the Des Moines area, along with multiple neighborhood public parks. Simon's is a polished bistro that serves fantastic Italian & American cuisine; The Waveland Cafe, a local go-to that attracts guests from all over the Des Moines area; The Des Moines Community Playhouse, which holds the John Viars & the Kate Goldman's Children Theatres and endless opportunities to be entertained, take classes & more!
