The smells of hay and freshly picked apples mingle with the shouts of children on the annual Erie Shores Farm Tour. An organized event between four very different, yet equally welcoming, farm facilities, the self-guided tour encompasses fall foods and a range of harvest-themed activities. Hillcrest Orchards welcomes visitors with attractions such as hayrides, a corn maze, and pedal carts, while staff at Dostall Farms lead their guests on a guided tour of their humane meat-processing facility, where animals are fed only grass or corn. The event ends with a prize drawing at Matus Winery, where staff also give a guided tour of the wine-making facilities, including the giant barrel where the winemakers sleep every night. To ensure participants don't lose their ways, Erie Shores Farm Tour provides a complimentary map and suggested travel routes between locations.

400 pounds of lift. 60 pounds per square inch, more than 35 feet straight into the air—or below the water. The specifications of Aquafly's jet-powered Flyboard add up to a unique experience in extreme aquatic sports. Devised in 2011 by French jet-ski racer Franky Zapata, the FlyBoard system uses the jet discharge of a personal watercraft to propel its strapped-in pilot above or through the water. The company's factory-certified instructors help customers break the shimmering surface of Lake Okoboji in beginner through advanced pilot-training classes, divulging tips for basic Flyboard operation while introducing a range of maneuvers and complex tricks. They also provide Flyboard rentals and routine maintenance.
Keeping shots straight is the key to scoring low at Eagle Grove Golf Course. The nine-hole layout features straightaway holes lined by many trees to knock down errant shots, making things easier on golfers who specialize in bouncing shots off of tree trunks. If players can manage to keep their approaches on the short stuff, they give themselves the best shot of beating the par of 35?a tricky test even with the 2,959-yard overall length.
