Beneath the small town charm of Ames, Iowa, beats the heart of a much larger city. A city with hundreds of acres of parks, numerous bike paths, and cultural festivals and celebrations. A city that’s been ranked the 2nd most livable small city in the nation by the American Institute for Economic Research.

Ames is 30 minutes from Des Moines, and 3 hours from Kansas City, Minneapolis, and Omaha.

Iowa is a place where neighborhoods are friendly and commutes are short. A place where quality public education isn’t just a dream, but a reality. A place with endless outdoor recreational opportunities.
