Steakhouse

“Pete's is an amazing place for dinner or lunch! If you like pasta, try the pasta mama-lean-a. If you are a steak person, all the steaks are great. Their pizza is different than most, love the cheese!”

Farmers Market

Park
“A quiet and peaceful forestry park that seems out of place in the middle of the USA! There are trees and monuments for astronauts, aviators and other famous people. About 20 min drive. Follow the signs off of 73 hwy. You will probably think you are lost getting there! ”
