There is a lot of variety when it comes to bars and restaurants. We recently just got a new Jimmy Johns. There are a lot of local restaurants that are really great, better than the chain restaurants I think!

The winter is horrible weather. If you like snow, then you will love it! The summers are usually nice, but sometimes they are cold.
There are some big name singers that come to the casino every year, and there is also a large semi-pro ladies golf tournament at Sweetgrass also located in the same area as the casino.
