Ames may be located in Iowa and the Midwest, but we are a first class, smart city with amazing citizens working toward a better life for everyone and their community. Designated as the Ninth Best Place to Live in the United States (, 2010), and recognized as one of the 100 Best Communities, Ames citizens live a healthy and wealthy balanced life - defined by you.

There are many organizations and clubs to get involved in and help make a difference in Ames. Community giving and volunteering is something the AEDC feels strongly about and routinely incorporates into their schedule.
