Can you tell me what kind of night activities you have at the resort? Do you have shows?
Hi Jslup5, As mentioned by optimusprimeiowa, we are located in downtown Des Moines. While we aren't classified as a resort, there are plenty of entertainment options nearby including events at Wells Fargo Arena, the Zoo, Des Moines Arts Center and more. Thanks!
