Bass Pro Shop~ Outdoor World

OK~ Yesterday was a gloomy, dreary day in North Iowa.  A road trip was awaiting us.  We headed to the Bass Pro Shop, located in Altoona, Iowa.  Boy, if you are fortunate enough to live close to one of these you are truly lucky!  This was just a two hour drive from our home, not that big of a deal;  but a little more than a hop, skip, and a jump!

From fishing, boating, camping, swimming, clothing, footwear, trapshooting, canoeing gear AND more~ this store is a destination store.  Summer Camp was even going on while we were in the store.  Kids could participate in crafts, practice their casting, attend a family workshop, and even work on Merit Badges for Scouting.  This store is a happening place this Summer.  I am sure that other Bass Pro Shops offer some of the same great ones that this particular store does in Altoona, Iowa.

At one end of the building is a really cool bowling alley, which is priced by the hour!  A great activity for a family to participate in while visiting the store.  Food is also available from Uncle Buck's Restaurant while bowling.  The bowling alley is themed with an underwater, ocean like theme.  Even better~ the boys won a free hour of bowling!  So, I guess we will have to go back sometime soon.

Oh, and the little shooting gallery also offered free shooting during Summer Camp.  My two boys enjoyed the shoot-out that this awesome store offered.  I have to say my 15 year old teen, had a fun day!

If you are a family that enjoys the great outdoors.  You should check out the closest Bass Pro Shop.  With Father's Day just around the corner, this might be the perfect destination for you and your family!
After All, It's All In a Mom's Day, Right?
