Today we headed to our favorite store, Cabela’s. Cabela’s is one of the largest hunting outfitters in the world. I have probably only bought 2 things at Cabela’s, but I have been there a thousand times. It is a quick, free, animal adventure.
They have a large fish tank that my boys spend at least 10 minutes watching the trout and catfish swim around. Cabela’s has tons of animals to look at, if you don’t mind that they are stuffed (African animals, record moose & elk, bears, all kinds of birds, and much more). They also have an airplane upstairs. There is a cafe, but I have never eaten there, although I hear that the food is good. They also have a sweet shop with candy and delicious fudge.
If you want to splurge, you can put a quarter in to the fish food machine and feed the fish. My two big boys love to do this because the fish rush to the food, so you get a good look at them. You can also spend a few dollars at the Old West shoot out. This is a bit tricky for little ones because they can’t reach, but if you set them up next to the rifle, they can have a turn shooting at the targets.
If you are looking for an easy indoor adventure, this is a great place to go and you don’t have to spend a dime! Cabela’s is located off of the Highland/Alpine exit next to the Traverse Mountain Outlets.
