Fortune Says Des Moines is Number One
DES MOINES, IA (CBS2/FOX28) Des Moines is now number one according to a popular magazine.
Earlier this month, Fortune put Des Moines at the top of its list of five cities with up-and-coming downtowns.
In its video report, Des Moines ranked above Kansas City, Allentown, Louisville and Cincinnati.
Fortune says Des Moines gets high marks for things we expect like its insurance district but its little things sprinkled across the city that put it at number one.
They praise the downtown for its 8035 music festival, the number of startups and incubators and a few restaurants.
Three were even semi-finalists for the James Beard Awards.
