Welcome to West Des Moines. What will you do first?

Your destination for

In West Des Moines, if you can dream it, you can do it.
And, we’re here to help.

Dream Job.

We are proud to have a business community that values inclusion, workplace culture, community give-back, and development opportunities. Employees experience personal growth and deep connections through the work they do, and they build fulfilling careers rather than simply landing a job.

As a Chamber, we have connections with employers who want fresh talent like you.

Dream Life.

Eat and drink your way through the metro at 1,410+ restaurants and bars. Want to burn off all that good food? Hit the 800 miles of trails or one of the 27 parks right here in WDM. Don’t miss the internationally recognized festivals and national headline concerts. Ready to restock your closet with the latest trends or just need some retail therapy? Head to our various shopping destinations from local boutiques to national brands. Don’t miss out on the art walks, displays, festivals, and celebrations. There are also plenty of murals for your Instagram feeds! Need a laugh or want to sit back and enjoy a show? Check out the various comedy clubs, the Symphony, or the Performing Arts Center

The best part about all of this is that because we have a low cost of living, you can do all of this (and more!) to live a high quality of life. 

HIGH quality of life.

LOW cost of living.

Spend less time commuting,
more time connecting.

After a full day of work, do you want a long commute home? The average commute time here is only 16.5 minutes. Who wants another unpaid 1-2 hours tacked on to every single work day just to get home? Not us!

Once you do get home, would you rather walk in to the apartment on the left or one of the WDM ones on the right? We’ll take a larger one (like these) with more amenities for less rent!
