I know the 4th gets a lot of the action when it comes to July, but we also celebrate another occasion -- and this one is for the whole month -- National Anti-Boredom Month!
So in honor of the holiday, here are a few of our favorite things to do in Des Moines to keep the boredom at bay.
The Des Moines Art Center is an absolute gem in the city, get there soon if you haven't been lately!
If you prefer the outdoors, get your ass to some grass! Or just take a little stroll through the East Village.
*And make sure to selfie it up while you're there 🙋♀️
If you're more of the indoors type, we highly recommend Ernie's Boondock + get the slushie.
You can also visit elevencherry salon if you need your hair did!
Magazine launch parties with your best babes are always a great option, too <3
If you're more of the outdoorsy type, don't worry, Ernie's Boondock also has a fab little patio:)
Take up motorcycling @ DREAM CO...
Or skateboarding at Fourmile Creek🤘
Hit up a baseball game with your sista👯♀️
Pool it up.
And if all else fails, get that golden hour on a patio, and make sure you look fly in some sustainable fashion no matter what you do ☀️☀️☀️
