    Actually, Des Moines is #1, it's just the second slide in the show.

    Des Moines is a great place to live. Big enough to get that big city feel when you're down town. Small enough that you commutes aren't bad. Plenty of good school districts. You can still go up to Ames for games easily. Not far from other big cities. Can do weekend trips easily.

    That's right it's #1. Average commute time is 21 minutes. That might seem a little like heaven for folks that spend a couple of hours a days driving back and forth to work.

    Re: 10 best places to live for less

    It's tough to lump Des Moines into one big group. It's a world of difference between living in the actual city of Des Moines compared to living in a suburb.

    Des Moines proper compared to suburbs:
    Higher taxes compared to suburbs (per $1,000)
    Cheaper housing
    Worse schools
    Higher crime

    I just spent last July in Moab, Utah and alcohol was just as plentiful as it is here. Great time, beautiful scenery and great off-road adventures, but I wouldn't want to live there.
