It was a nice store to visit, but it wasn't worth the trip out of the way to see it.
The town, parking, and store were all very crowded. Few people were purchasing anything. I found the items that I did like to be way overpriced. It was nice they had a little trout pond and aquarium, but I've seen others at Bass Pro Shops that make this look like nothing special.
The store has a lot of Hype, and to me that's all it was. It was a beautiful, clean store. Even with other reviews that said similar things we still had to go see it, but I wasn't very impressed. I could have used the time doing something more enjoyable on our vacation other than visiting an overpriced, crowded, tourist trap.
I would have rather skipped this and found an outlet store anywhere else in the country or just visited them online to make purchases.
The past that stood out the most was that they had an entire area dedicated to nothing but pets. That was something that I haven't seen before and enjoyed browsing.
