Iowa's capital city is right in the center of the state, and thanks to a historic state Supreme Court ruling, a Midwest haven of marriage equality. The many colleges here lend a progressive vibe. Des Moines doesn't usually overflow with visitors, but local gay activists are now bracing for and embracing a number of out-of-staters arriving to get hitched. OneIowa.org is building a resource page for queer nuptials. The gay scene is relatively small with only a few gay bars and clubs, most in the pedestrian-friendly East Village east of downtown.

The Jewel of the Midwest, Des Moines is located in the middle of the heartland. Iowa’s largest city is an exciting place to visit, as it’s also the political and cultural capital of Iowa. In the heart of the city you can find the Iowa State Capital, the Iowa Historical Building, and the beautifully restored Court Avenue and Fourth Street areas.

Des Moines has a vibrant gay community, with several gay bars in the East Village. From here, through Sherman Hill to Drake University there are gay-friendly neighborhoods. Check it out for yourself in June, when Capital City Pride brings thousands out from all around the state.
