For 20 years, indoor fun park Planet X has been mesmerizing families with its sheer number of activities. Guests of all ages can zap their least favorite cousins during laser tag, release pent-up road rage in bumper cars, practice their putting on the mini-golf course, challenge themselves to climb a craggy indoor rock wall, and immerse themselves in flashing lights in the expansive arcade room. And those are just a few of the activities at Planet X.
Planet X fuels the merriment with its own Pangea Pizza?made-from-scratch pizzas sprinkled with fresh, hand-sliced toppings?and Full Moon ice cream. This handcrafted, organic-milk ice cream satisfies sweet teeth with more than 24 ultra creamy flavors and nearly 80 toppings.

Founded in 1933, the Cedar Rapids chapter of the Iowa Junior Chamber of Commerce—or Jaycees—hones the leadership skills of its members through projects and programs that benefit the community. Once-a-month Sunday breakfasts bring locals together in the common pursuit of pancakes, and Uptown Friday Nights in Green Square Park are filled with music, food, and drinks. The Jaycees also fling wide the doors of its newly opened Jaycee Center to renters for conferences, parties, wedding receptions, and driving-school-class reunions.
The men’s league at Belle Plaine Country Club is no joke: its member roster boasts 112 players. As course manager Mike Coffman points out, “It’s an impressive number for a small town"—and a testament to the course’s charms. Its bluegrass fairways have become a lively gathering place for the community. The pines, elms, and oaks dotting the fairways have flourished for more than 80 years, during which time they've been nourished by a steady diet of misaimed balls and frustrated golfers’ tears. Two-time PGA champion Lonnie Nielsen, who grew up playing on the course, can still occasionally be seen teeing off here.
The course challenges players with tricky water hazards, and balls have to strap on their crampons and take out their rock picks to ascend the eighth hole’s elevated green. After a day spent on the fairways or at the driving range and practice putting green, players can unwind with a slice of pizza or a hamburger at the snack bar.
Course at a Glance: * Nine-hole, par 36 course * Length of 3,008 yards * Course rating of 67.6 * Slope rating of 111
