SILVER STREET is one of the main commercial avenues in town. Here you will find many businesses and shops to browse. Have fun!
VISIT THE WILLOW POINT GALLERY ON MAIN STREET. Half of the gallery features the works of local artist Gene Roncka and the other half has the Hightshoe Big Game Collection, with over 30 animals nestled in a natural environment of trees, a waterfall, sounds of nature and includes one of the largest Polar Bears ever taken in the Arctic Circle area.
On the art gallery side, Mr. Roncka has done paintings for Mutual of Omaha's Wild Kingdom, ConAgra, Ducks Unlimited, and many other well-known clients. Prints are available for sale, as well as original works.
$10 as of August 2013. The Mahoney Lodge at Mahoney State Park is very nice as is the Mahoney Grille inside. Lots of dark wood and a great view. The service was professional and efficient though a bit lacking in friendliness. Worth a try while at the park.
Favorite Dish: Fettuccini Alfredo was great!
GREAT ATMOSPHERE, ITS BEEN DESCRIBED AS AN OLD FASHIONED SODA FOUNTAIN BUT WITH A MODERN MENU. They have expresso, cappuccino, latte, and mocha; tea and hot chocolate also. For something cold, they have fruit smoothies, ice cream, sodas, malts, shakes sundaes and floats. For light lunches there are sandwiches, salads and soups. Their breakfast menu includes rolls, bagels and muffins.
They also have themed party rooms. On the second floor is "Harold and Thelma's Basement" which contains 1950's memorabilia and decor. Another room is the "My Funny Valentine" room, with an atique, old-fashioned romantic feel.
Favorite Dish: I like the flavored lattes.
This is a Lutheran church camp but is open to all. They have wonderful facilities in a great setting. My five photos show some of these facilities. Click the first photo to see more.
Sadly, Carol Joy Holling was an 18 year old girl who was on her way to Colorado to begin college when she died in a traffic accident.
The camp is located just outside of town; watch for signs.
