Altoona is located just east of the city of Des Moines, and offers homes for rent in a region filled with plenty of excitement. Renters with an adventurous streak are sure to love all that this area provides.
Altoona is perfect for renters who like thrills. For some adrenaline-pumping excitement, the city is home to Adventureland. For the summer months, it has two 60-foot-high water slides in its Adventure Bay water park. It also has the Tornado, which was Iowa's first-ever wooden roller coaster, as well as the double-looping, upside-down Dragon coaster. For a different kind of excitement, there's Prairie Meadows. This track features both thoroughbred and quarter horse racing. It also has a casino with card games and over 2,000 slot machines. Prairie Meadows also has plenty of dining options, such as a steakhouse and a gourmet buffet.
