Where you’ll be

Waukee, Iowa, United States


The Shuler Mine opened in Waukee in 1921 and employed close to 500 men.

The area of the mine, taken from a blueprint in 1947, stretched approximately 1.25 miles wide and 3.75 miles long. The outline of the mine is overlaid on a present-day map and reaches south of Douglas Parkway to north of Waterford Road.

Just down the street from the legendary Alice’s Spaghetti Land, W ave. is Locally known as Alices Road. Now meets directly with interstate 80.


Waukee is ever growing but still has the small town charm that is so easy to love.

Some of my favorite places are:

Locally owned Mickey's Irish Pub for some great food and nightlife (hogwild is a must) Family friendly through dinner, Johnny and Nick's Steakhouse for a date night, Centennial Park for all season if you are here in the winter ice skating is fun otherwise there is normally something going on there, Bike and walking paths a stones throw away, Imax theater, or bowling!
