Despite being about 40% larger Omaha doesn't offer a whole lot more than Des Moines does (other than things like the Nebraska Furniture Mart and Dave and Busters), and I don't think comparing the core cities has a ton of relevance. Des Moines and Omaha by themselves are larger than Salt Lake City proper, but you don't see a lot of people comparing DSM or Omaha to SLC, or at least favorably. SLC isn't say, MSP big, but it at least is home to an NBA team and light rail, neither of which DSM nor Omaha are likely to get for quite some time.
I got my numbers from the "Official Des Moines" website. https://www.dmgov.org/INFOCENTER/Pag...DesMoines.aspx

The 2014 metro estimates are listed on the census.gov site.
