    Ankeny

    We are visiting my dad this weekend, and he lives in the cesspool called Ankeny. I had a cousin that lived in Ankeny when we were little. Seemed like a nice town. Now it looks like everywhere else. What the hell happened????

    Re: Ankeny

    ankeny is a great town if you have kids and want to raise a family and even if you're a empty-nester it is still a good place.

    However if you're single and want a night life, Ankeny is not the place for you.

    Ditto. I am single and live in Ankeny. The only + side to it is I boat and in the summer it is close to the lake.

    If I had it all over to do again, I would be in WDM.

    Yeah, this idiot was talking trash about Ankeny a few weeks ago and I had the same thought.

    Re: Ankeny

    Ankeny has become nothing more than your run of the mill Des Moines suburb, which in a smaller, less expensive way, show the same social tendencies found in your average Chicago suburb. It bores me. A small town way bore you, but it isn't all about where you live. It is also about where you have been and where you are going. I'm loving this chapter. West Liberty is great.

    All I hope is that Jade Garden is still open and The Clipper still has tacos on Tuesday.

    Re: Ankeny

    Ankeny is notorious for having some of the most bigheaded pompous ***----- in their sports programs. Jerry Pezzetti however is a class act and is the best 4A coach.

    Re: Ankeny

    I moved to Ankeny in part because I wanted to live in a suburb of Des Moines, and I go to several Cyclone games. I was living in WDM, and the 45 minute drive (at least) each way got old. That was the main reason I moved here.

    I guess I don't really see how it's a cesspool? A cesspool of what? I think it does pretty well for a smallish town. There are several restaurant options, chains and non-chains, and some decent bar options. Home Depot, Menards, Super Target. No mall, which is a good thing, in my mind. It's really only about a 15 minute drive to downtown, and 25 tops to West Des Moines and Ames. It's about a three hour drive from Minneapolis and Kansas City, two hours from Omaha and about five from Chicago.

    People are relatively nice, lots of Cyclone fans, and the high school seems to turn out some pretty good students/athletic teams. I've only lived in Ankeny for about 8 years, and never really thought of it as "home", but I think it's pretty far from a "cesspool"...

    yes. the clipper even remodeled and cleaned it up a bit. then they jacked their prices up.


    Sometimes when I reflect back on all the beer I drink I feel ashamed. Then look into the glass and think about the workers in the brewery and all of their hopes and dreams. If I didn't drink this beer, they might be out of work and their dreams would be shattered. Then I say to myself, "It is better that I drink this beer and let their dreams come true than selfish and worry about my liver."

    Ankeny - Ames 25 miles

    West Liberty - Iowa City 18 miles

    Argument over.
