Weekend Trip - nearby cities?

Jump to last reply

My husband and I recently relocated to Des Moines, Iowa. I'm thinking about surprising him with a weekend getaway and am wondering where to go... nearby cities within a few hours driving distance? cheap airline ticket? any suggestions on a nice place to visit? we are not familiar with the Midwest at all, having come from Northeast area...

Thanks.
