Scheels is a large outlet for sports equipment of all kinds. It also has a ferris wheel and restaurant. Good for a rainy day excursion. Also a good place to pick up sports wear for all the area teams. Fun for all ages.

There is so much to do in this store! It is perfect for a family outing. I happened to purchase homemade fudge while here and it was excellent. I especially enjoyed the snicker flavored fudge.

There are two restaurants within walking distance of Scheels. To the north is III Tomassos Italian Bistro (good food - we like this place) and to the south is Engrained Brewing Company which is a brew pub.
