Forbes: America’s Prettiest Neighborhoods

7 of 12

Beaverdale, Des Moines, Iowa

Featuring bucolic parks, attractive historic churches and a small bunch of popular area restaurants, Beaverdale stands out among Des Moines’ neighborhoods and is a great place to while away a weekend day. “Most of the brick homes date to the 1930s, and nestle underneath towering shade trees and along streets with parkways running down the middle,” says Williams. There is a popular fall festival and plans are in the works to start a farmer’s market in the neighborhood next summer.
