Hard to find, but once you do, you can check Johnny Appleseed's Grave off of your list. I like historical stuff and information, so I liked it.

Apples at Appleseed grave.

The GPS will take you to a private golf club on the other side of the hill from the Coliseum parking lot. Start up the wood-chip path toward the apple trees on the right. The grave is at the top of the little hill. It's covered with little green apples from the surrounding trees.
