welcome to ames — you've made a smart choice to visit!

Whether you're in town for business, to catch a game or just a quick visit, you'll enjoy an array of options to meet your needs and expenses. During the day you can find local shopping in our downtown boutiques. Hang out in one of our 35 woodland parks. Hop on our 55 miles of bike and pedestrian trails.
