Lake of the Ozarks, Missouri
WRITTEN BY HEIDI SIEFKAS
Nestled in the Ozark Mountains of south-central Missouri is a world-class boating, golfing, shopping, and fishing mecca. The Lake of the Ozarks—with more miles of coastline than California’s ocean beaches—is the Midwest’s premier lake resort. Only a couple hours from St. Louis, Jefferson City, and Branson, the “Fun Lake” is known as one of the best places to own a second home. Why is this area of the Show-Me state so special? It won’t take long to see why.
