    Ideas to rent between Ames and DM

    The future Mrs. JPK and myself are looking to rent a place between DM and Ames as she works downtown and I work in Ames. Trying to split the difference for driving.
    Just starting to look for ideas or preferences that people have, most likely Ankeny area.
    We'd probably do a large 1BR or regular 2BR with a garage to store bikes, etc. Looking at moving this summer-most likely June-Julyish so I don't have to worry about it interfering with RAGBRAI.
    Don't know if anyone specifically has one available, like a certain area, landlords, parts of town, etc.
    We both know a lot about the Ames and D.M. communities, just not much between. Not trying to put a craigslist ad on here, just seeing what your opinions are. Thanks!

    There are plenty of cheap townhomes for sale. Call one that you like and see if they are willing to rent. Or buy one for less than rent! :)


    Just in case you didn't know... I'm a girl.

    Ankeny looks like a likely watering hole for you two.

    Polk City. Bike trails, it's right on Saylorville lake, close to the Interstate and outside of the city... and you can take back-roads that lead right in to West Ames, perfect for avoiding I-35 traffic.
