1. Explore rare and vintage cars at the Cussler Museum

The Cussler museum has an extensive collection of old cars dating from 1906 to 1965. Owner Clive Cussler began buying and fixing up cars as a teenager, and as he wrote coffee table books about vintage cars he was able to save up enough to open the museum to show off his collection. The museum is open Monday through Thursday during the summer months.
