Enjoy the Small-Town Charm of Boone, Iowa

Welcome to the Neighborhood

As any long-term resident will tell you, Boone is one of the best small towns in central Iowa. With a population of just over 12,000, you get all the charm of a tight-knit community with close proximity to the attractions of Des Moines.

Boone is known for its strong railroad history, evident in the Boone and Scenic Valley Railroad. Enjoy a dinner train ride through the beautiful Des Moines River Valley and across the iconic Bass Point Creek High Bridge. You can also explore Boone and the surrounding areas by bike or on foot by using the High Trestle Trail or the Boone River Recreation Trail.
