Carl Busskohl began his career as a mail carrier in 1928, but soon he found he had passengers other than parcels. When folks increasingly asked to ride along on his route between Norfolk and Sioux City, Carl saw another opportunity: he traded his 7-passenger Buick in for a 25-passenger bus, making it the first vehicle of the Arrow Stage Lines fleet. After more than 80 years, Carl's enterprise has grown to include more than 160 luxury motorcoaches?all equipped with air conditioning, reclining seats, and spacious restrooms?that ferry groups, athletic teams, and big-window fan clubs to new destinations or on local and long-distance tours.

Despite its name, the Great Plains Black History Museum doesn't strictly pay homage to African-Americans of the Great Plains; it honors notable persons scattered all across the globe. That aim has been at the heart of the museum since it opened three decades ago. Though its exhibits do immortalize the accomplishments of African-Americans in settling the Great Plains, they also speak to the struggles of social injustice across the country. For example, a past exhibit paid tribute to early African-American baseball leagues.

It hosts a 5K run, multiple bike rides, and a biathlon, which combines biking and running into a single challenging event. In addition to trying your hand at the races or cheering on participants, you can also visit the weekend expo's eclectic group of exhibitors and speakers, who range from NFL players to psychics who can help guests predict the color of their next pair of running shoes.

Acquainting visitors with the many local rivers and lakes, the guides at Driftwood Paddle Adventures send explorers out on standup paddleboards for a fun workout on the water. But paddlers don't just tone their cores and arm muscles, they also enjoy picturesque views. During sunset tours, groups paddle out onto Lake Zorinsky to soak in views of the sun setting over the water and glimpses of local wildlife, such as the elusive dusk mermaid.

In the warmer months, Moonstone Lavender Gardens' three acres of lush, purple flowers provide a dreamy and fragrant setting for wine tastings, live music festivals, and picturesque weddings. Entirely organic, the gardens are also home to annuals and perennials, so something is always in bloom. Each batch of lavender sold at the on-site store is hand-cut, bundled, and hung up to dry?or incorporated into items such as aromatic soaps, candles, and even aromatherapy pillows.
