Urbandale is uniquely set around two merged Interstate highways that curve around the outskirts of busy Des Moines, Iowa, located in the heart of the Midwest. Both Interstates stretch completely across the country from east to west (I-80), and span the U.S. from northern Minnesota all the way to the southern tip of Texas (I-35). This point of convergence – north, south, east and west – provides quick access to business markets and jobs, as well as to a host of leisure activities. State Highway 6 runs along the south edge of the Urbandale city limits. Click here to download a map of Urbandale. Click here to take a look at Urbandale using Virtual Earth!
