I enjoy the variety of activities in and around Lake Ozark, MO. There are as many activities to enjoy on the lake, as there is around the lake. The traffic is bad in the summertime due to all the tourism. The fall is less crowded, and offers lots of colorful trees. This is a great time to take photos of the leaves turning in the fall. There are also many restaurants to sample different types of food. Lake Ozark offers many shops for everything under the sun you may need. There are always sales going on at the Osage Beach Outlet Mall nearby.

I think that we need to invest in more ways to accompany tourists. We receive a lot of tourists starting around Memorial Day and ending around Labor Day. We don't have very many attractions, and we don't have places for these tourists to stay. However, we have a ton of shopping mall and stores which helps us generate a a steady income during the tourist season.
Lake Ozark is the gateway to the beautiful Lake of the Ozarks. Some may even call it Paradise with something here for everyone. There are many activities for those who love the outdoors including boating, fishing, swimming, parasailing, and hiking in the beautiful state park Ha Ha Tonka. The nightlife is hopping in the summertime, I mean who wouldn't want to party at a lake front bar? There are also various activities for families to enjoy like the newly built movie theater, outlet mall, Miner Mikes, Get Air, and the arcade.
