Start the day off right, with brunch at Chez Trappeur.
Yes, it's a wine bar, but they also serve an amazing brunch every Sunday.
Visit the shops along "The Boardwalk."
When you hear boardwalk, you may think of a path along the ocean. I hate to burst your bubble, but there are no large oceans or lakes nearby. However, Arrow Rock has some of the most authentic small shops which are lined up on Main Street. The wooden-planked walkways to each store is what gave locals a nickname for this main street.
Dine at the oldest continuously operating restaurant west of the Mississippi River.
J. Huston once acted as a common rest stop for immigrants heading West during the 1800s. Today, it continues to have that same welcoming and warm vibe, while also serving the best fried chicken in the state.
