  • River Valley Golf Course
    When golfers step onto River Valley Golf Course?s newly renovated facility, they can expect to see an emerald sweep of the Raccoon River Valley, as it unfurls before them. Taking cues from that tranquility, they gracefully arc their balls over the gently doglegging fairway, avoiding the creek hugging the hole to the left. Careful second shots pop up into the sky before landing on the wide green and setting up eagle putts. With the shots sunk, golfers continue on across the remaining 17 fairways, dodging ponds on 3 holes and skirting 25 bunkers speckled throughout. This incorporation of the landscape takes center stage on the par 3 12th. There, a partial-island green formed by a pond that almost envelops a peninsula tests accuracy. Players can take the risk overshooting the drive, play it safe by chipping on in two, or let the strategic decision overwhelm them until they?re curled up on the ground. But to help prepare for all situations, the River Valley practice facility presents golfers with a greenside practice bunker and a 300-yard range. Course at a Glance: * 18-hole, par 72 course * Total length of 6,684 yards from the back tees * Course rating of 72 from the back tees * Course slope of 124 from the back tees * Three sets of tees per hole * Scorecard

  • The Social Canvas
    When students believe they?ve made an errant brushstroke on their canvases, seasoned painter Linda Laughery reassures them that ?there are no mistakes.? She believes that each brushstroke, even those that don?t go according to plan, contributes to the uniqueness of every painter. This positive approach to art radiates within her paint-speckled studio, The Social Canvas, where of-age students can loosen their artistic inhibitions with a few sips of wine or beer during fun, carefree painting classes that are friendly to beginners. Families can also embark on painting projects together during family days, when kids practice making art on blank canvases rather than on walls or their parents? tax papers. The Social Canvas? classes typically focus on a particular featured painting depicting images such as a Parisian street scene, a glass of wine, or a vivid landscape. With guidance from Laughery, students re-create the painting and make it their own before bringing the finished masterpiece home to proudly display. "Everybody says they can't do it," Laughery says of those who may not have held a brush since preschool. "But in the end they're shocked that they did."

  • Patch's Pumpkins & Honey Farm
    From above, the 4-acre corn maze at Patch’s Pumpkins & Honey Farm looks like a challenge. It weaves through swaying stalks and around cleared expanses that spell out words to literate blue jays flying overhead. The maze’s mile-long pathways are dotted with checkpoints, making the labyrinth easy for families to conquer in about an hour. One of the many autumnal attractions at the farm, the corn maze and its kid-size sister entertain groups as fall sets in. Elsewhere on the farm, the sound of a soaring pumpkin cuts through the air every hour, on the hour, as it’s fired from a novelty cannon. Trace its path and you’ll encounter striped circus tents housing all manner of diversion: a straw bale maze, a jumping pit filled with corn kernels, and a lineup of furry creatures beckoning hands at the petting zoo. To navigate all these attractions, folks can meander the grounds on foot, in the bed of an antique tractor, or atop a pony that circles its course and refuses to accept tips.

  • Fat Randi's Bar & Grill
    Fat Randi's Bar & Grill, a casual gathering spot where cooks grill burgers and bartenders tap brews, has a claim to fame: its hand-breaded tenderloins were ranked as one of the state's top five Best Breaded Pork Tenderloins by the Iowa Pork Producers Association. That ranking inspired Des Loines—a blog entirely dedicated to pork-tenderloin sandwiches—to review Fat Randi’s version, describing it as "nice, thick and juicy" with a "nice golden brown color,” and noted that its wealth of toppings caused it to lean to the side. The staff of Fat Randi’s hosts events regularly, such as a steak fry, Daytona 500 party, and a New Year's Day brunch.
