“Enjoy a free wine tasting or bottle of award winning Iowa wine. Sit in the patio area while listening to live music. I love the Volga Lake White Wine.”
“Katie sells specialty beers, local meats, cheese, dips, specialty coffee drinks and fresh sandwiches. She also offers fun classes like cheese making and salsa/sangria nights. ”
“Josie's River Queen is right next door the Suite on Main. A great place for getting to know the locals, relaxing with a cold beer or cocktail. Not to mention they have the best pizza by far within 100 miles! ”
“Paper Moon is an experience in itself! Plan to spend at least a half hour exploring unique gifts, accessories, personal items and books for all ages. We go there specifically to Christmas shop!”
