Bauder Pharmacy

Bauder’s ice cream is famous in Iowa, especially so among people who attend the annual state fair. Year around, the drug store is a place to come for one heck of a fine cherry Coke, a Green River, or a lime phosphate. You can indulge in a turtle sundae, as well as shakes, malts, sodas, and floats of every stripe. All the ice cream treats are made from Bauder’s own ice cream, the flavor rotation of which includes fresh strawberry and peach in the summer months.

Ford’s Lobsters

The Lobster Bomb is reason enough to visit Ford’s Lobsters, but factor in the rustic picnic tables you are sitting at, the view of boats coming and going, gulls screeching overhead, and the salty air, and you realize that this might just be the most perfect meal you ever ate.

Lyman Orchards’ Apple Barrel

Lyman Orchards has been a destination drive for as long as I can remember. It is a sprawling, picturesque fruit market with pretty views of the lake and picnic tables outside to sit and eat at. People come here to pick their own fruits in season…or if you are like me (rather lazy), you simply go inside Lyman and fill your shopping cart with wonderful produce ready to take home.
