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.
At Bridges Bay Resort's Boji Splash indoor water park, a 500-gallon tipping bucket fills to the brim before it spills over and dumps its watery contents on the swimmers gathered below. Throughout the water park, guests can swim in the gradual-entry pool, swoosh down water slides, or float on tubes in the lazy river. Other aquatic features include a pirate ship equipped with water cannons, a spray playground, and a lily-pad water walk. After working up an appetite, head to Bracco Waterfront Grill for burgers, steaks, and seafood.
Thanks to Bridges Bay Resort's location along Lake Okoboji, most of the suites and condos feature stunning waterfront views. Condominiums come with a full kitchen, outdoor patio, and living room with fireplace to burn marshmallow effigies of Lex Luthor.

Owned and operated by Dr. Ronald J. Kolegraff, re*be is one of the most credentialed clinics in Iowa, specializing in vein treatments, skin surgeries, and cosmetic procedures. Treating varicose and spider veins with sclerotherapy, Dr. Kolegraff employs one of a variety of techniques best suited for the patient and the severity of vein problems, helping limbs look refreshed and ready for lederhosen season. Damaged veins will be injected with sodium tetradecyl sulfate, which makes the veins collapse or clot and then retreat from public life on the skin's surface. There are few restrictions on patients after the procedure, so three-legged races and leapfrog contests are encouraged.
