Each Holiday season, Bass Pro Shops is transformed into a Winter Wonderland, with fun kid activities, unique decorations and even FREE Santa photos!


December, 2016

It’s fun to just walk around and see all the decorations, and the fun permanent exhibits, like the giant freshwater fish tank!

Of course, everyone wants to see Santa!  It’s really convenient, because they give you a pager, so you can explore instead of standing in line!

And there are lots of fun activities to keep the kids entertained!

There is a daily FREE craft, too!  Be sure and get there early, because they often run out!

My kiddo LOVED the Lincoln Log table, and spent all his time there!

Family Summer Camp

I had heard that they were offering archery at Outdoor World’s Family Summer Camp, which seemed like a fun event, so we made plan to go.

  . What a great selection of activities that have for kids!!
 And, it’s all FREE!!
My neice practicing casting at the fishing exhibit!
The bb gun range.  An Outdoor World employee shows
the kids how to hold the gun and aim.


This is what we came for!! My son did great,
hitting the target 3 of his 4 shots!
Each hour they offer an outdoor seminar over
topics like camping, hunting, bird watching, etc.
They give each child a lanyard, and then they get a pin
for each seminar they attend.
Between seminars, the kids visited the crafts table
to make a gold fish game.

My neices were in town from Las Vegas,  and we took them with us.  The younger one loved the reindeer carousel, while her sister and my daughter enjoyed checking out all the beautiful boat, and pretending they were out on the lake!

If you want to try some wonderful Mexican food, or, according to my daughter, a good chicken fried steak, visit beautiful Esparza’s in the historic district.  Dine on the patio under the huge cottonwood trees;  or inside the renovated home built in the 1800’s.
