Located in the heart of Iowa, Ames is a growing metropolitan city that still exudes small-town charm. Ames enjoys natural, tranquil landscapes preserved through its 36 parks, 55 miles of bike trails, and vast, open Midwestern skies. A blossoming arts community thrives in the city with artisanal breweries, a vibrant music scene, and local galleries and boutiques found all around. In North Ames, Prairie West sits just a 5-minute walk away from the Iowa state university, making it a perfect home to professionals, staff, and to students completing their studies. The Interstate 35 is less than 10-minutes from the apartments, giving you seamless access to the rest of Iowa and beyond. For your shopping needs, you'd be happy to know that Walmart Supercenter, UPS Store, North Grand Mall, and TJ Maxx are all found in one place right off 24th St.
