A culture escape
A good start would be at Iowa Great Lakes Maritime Museum, where old boats (some sunken and retrieved) and other memorabilia acquaint visitors with the maritime history of the Great Lakes. The museum gift shop sells pretty keepsakes. Another worthy attraction is the Higgins Museum of National Banknotes, home to a tidy collection of banknotes from across the country, as well as early banking artifacts such as vault doors, teller windows, and safety deposit boxes. Look out for their turn-of-the-century Iowa photo postcards. For a walk through 1950s Okoboji, visit the Okoboji Classic Cars facility. The designers have cleverly incorporated iconic local attractions into the display designs, classic car collections, and wall murals.
Okoboji cherishes its performing arts scene, as you'll discover. Okoboji Summer Theatre (OST) has been entertaining locals for 60 years with its summertime comedies, classics, and musicals. There's also lakeside Preservation Plaza, where free concerts, art shows, and local events roll out each summer. The sunsets here are spectacular.
Kiddie's day out!
Plan a day of old-fashioned family fun at Ranch Okoboji, where you can tee off at the 18-hole mini-golf course, indulge in sand volleyball, croquet, or a messy squirt gun battle. The ranch also lets kids mine for gemstones, fossils, and arrowheads at Tyotee’s Wild Mining Adventure.
Another family-friendly gem is Arnold's Amusement Park, home to one of the world's oldest roller coasters. Kurio Kastle: Pottery Painting Palace invites kids to pick a piece of ceramic pottery and go wild painting it. The natural world awaits at Dickinson County Nature Center, which is home to tiger salamanders, snapping turtles, and attractions such as an indoor beehive, cavernous walk-through bat caves, and fox burrows.
