Great put put golf and an even better "jungle run" animal encounter. Rent a golf cart there for $8-$10 and drive through the Jungle Run, it's fun and you can stop and take as much time as you want to feed the goats, camel, peacocks, sheep, zebra, horses, & more.

Great walking spot, special area to safely bike or walk over the dam. Take a tour to see how they furnish the local electricity! Watch boats and barges lock through the dam. Awesome place to bow fish too or fish off the bank.

3 miles from us this place is a must see if you love the water, nature & history. When the gates are ALL open, seeing and feeling the power of that water is awesome! Visit the visitor's center to get into about the hydro-electricity generated here and the history of the building of this dam. If you love to walk there's a 2 miles stretch across the dam that's perfect for walking or biking with the best view ever!

No rides except a large 2-3 story slide, lots of hands on for small children through adults. Google it, you could easily spend 2 days here. Be sure to "launch" the rocket while you're there. You can really "feel" it's power and the ground shake. You push the button! Hands on in almost every part of this park! Great for kids of all ages, best for ages pre-school and up. One price to get in, additional charge for 4-5 extra attractions that are optional. Well worth it. Extra clean, well staffed, one or maybe 2 place to eat inside or eat out & return.

Fantastic place to go with family or couple. They show the newest films and the grill there is amazing. Plan to wait in line for food, some locals order food and pick up even if they aren't visiting the drive-in. This place is a treat for young and old alike!

You can almost see this place from our home. All they serve is catfish & boneless fish or chicken strips with all the fixings. . There's a line every night but you can call ahead for take out or reservations.. It's worth a try just to feed the fish, turtles and fowl who live outside in the lake. (They give you hushpuppies to feed them under their covered gazebo)

This place is fabulous! My mother's surgeon from Nashville flies here to a small local airport just to eat! They're famous for the 2 inch pork chop but it's all good and take time to walk around the grounds, absolutely stunning! Reservations required as of 2020 due to it's grand re-opening and the crowds who flock there!
