Located in central Iowa, Ames is a city known for its academics, Midwest hospitality and outdoor recreation. Ames is home to Iowa State University, the birthplace of the world’s first electronic digital computer. The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s National Animal Disease Center is also situated here. Named after U.S. Congressman Oakes Ames of Massachusetts, who was influential in the building of the transcontinental railroad, Ames is still regarded as a forward-thinking community.

The residents of Ames take pleasure in each of the four seasons. During the summer, the average temperature is 74 degrees while the winter brings in 24 degree weather.

Ames had a population of approximately 60,000, as of the 2012 U.S. Census. As the university lies within the city limits, it’s no surprise that the vast majority of residents work in educational services.

Or, take to the greens at one of the city’s five different golf courses, including Homewood or Veenker Memorial.

If you want to get taste of the student culture, head down to Jack Trice Stadium for a Cyclones football game. The season kicks off in late August. You can’t call yourself a resident without seeing one of these games!
