rolling hills, enhanced by dramatic bluffs, surround the more than 1150 miles of
meandering shoreline of the Lake of the Ozarks. 175 miles from St. Louis and 165 miles
from Kansas City, the Lake is the northern gateway to the Ozarks."

countryside takes on a peaceful nature this time of year. Then we light it up with over a
million Christmas bulbs for the holidays, creating a festive atmosphere for the holiday
concerts, children's activities, dining, dancing and celebrations for the New Year. In the
quiet, renewing January and February months, the Lake seems to rest and the stillness is
soothing...a romantic getaway...the warmth of a cozy fire...candle lit dinners. "
