Chicago, Illinois is roughly 334 miles or 538 kilometres from Des Moines, Iowa.  There are roughly 1.6 kilometres in a mile, hence the above two figures are differing.  If you are driving this distance by car then it would take around 5 hours and 35 minutes to complete the distance.  This distance would increase by an hour or more if you were to use public transport and you should allow 6 hours 40 minutes if you are travelling this distance by train.  The travel route will also take you past the city of Davenport, Iowa, which is the third largest city in Iowa.  Obviously the quoted distances above are estimates based on central points in both cities.  Your journey length and time may change dependant on where in Des Moines and Chicago you are travelling from and to.  Des Moines is the capital city of the state of Iowa, and as such is the most populated city in the state.  Similarly Chicago is the largest city in the state of Illinois, and third most populated city in the United States, behind New York and Los Angeles.  As Chicago is a major city in terms of population, culture, sport, and business there are plenty of hotels to stay in and some great entertainment venues to occupy your time there.  The website offers a fantastic service for planning your trip to Chicago and the must-see tourist attractions whilst you are there.
