This week, Royal Heating and Air, will continue sharing with you some of the fun things to do with your family here at the Lake of the Ozarks. We will talk about things to see and learn in the area (for those inquisitive kids). We will discuss low cost or free activities, so you don’t have to worry about the budget. We will also talk about some of the more random or miscellaneous things that you might not even think to look for.
Things to See or Learn.
If your kids love seeing and learning new things, there are lots of options at Lake of the Ozarks. We are fortunate to have several commercial caves including Bridal Cave in Camdenton, Stark Caverns in Eldon, and Jacob’s Cave in Versailles, each with their own unique features. There are also caves in the area State Parks. In addition, we have the Camden County Historical Museum, the Morgan County Historical Society and Museum, the Miller County Museum, and Wilmore Lodge and the Bagnell Dam Historical Museum located near the dam. If you want to show your kids exactly how the dam was built, that is the place to go. Also, if you have a budding artist in your family, you could even take art classes at Lake Fine Art Academy and Galleria.
The State Parks at the Lake of the Ozarks are extensive and so beautiful with breathtaking natural beauty. Whether you are looking for a public beach to swim, or hiking trails, fishing spots, caves, springs, castle ruins and Ozark bluffs, the local State Parks have it all and more. Check out Ha Ha Tonka in Camdenton, the State Park down Hwy 42, and the State Park Marina in Osage Beach.
Of course, most kids love a good pirate adventure and at the Lake of the Ozarks you have options. You will love Jolly Roger’s pirate themed restaurant in Rocky Mount where you can even book a cruise on the Pirate Ship Calypso! Or you can check out famous Captain Ron’s, (home of the Shootout) and enjoy the beach and sand volleyball areas all day long. If you are in town around the Shootout, you most definitely do not want to miss the kids’ treasure hunt on the beach.Or how about some bowling fun at Eldon Lanes or at the Westside Lanes in Gravois Mills. Maybe you want to just relax and see a movie … there is Lake West Cinema 5 down O Road in the Laurie/Gravois Mills area, and Marcus Eagles Landing Cinema in Osage Beach.
For a tasty treat, enjoy a lake favorite with frozen custard at Andy’s, and Randy’s, both in Osage Beach. Then for a close up look at some of the fastest power boats in the nation, you can venture out to Performance Boat Center’s showroom with an upper viewing balcony so you can even see inside the boats.We are happy to raise our family here and committed to providing the best HVAC service and maintenance to all our customers, because as a family-owned business, it matters to us. We just wanted to share these ideas with you because we think there is something for everyone in the family here at Lake of the Ozarks. We hope you enjoy living here just as much as we do. With so much to choose from … memories are waiting to be made!
