Labor Day Weekend Fireworks at the Lake of the Ozarks

Fireworks

Boom! Bang! Sizzle!

The Fourth of July weekend is one of the best times of year to watch fireworks at the Lake of the Ozarks.

But we’ll let you in on a little secret: In some ways, Labor Day weekend (Aug. 30 – Sept. 1) firework-watching is even better.

Temperatures start to cool just a tad. The crowds aren’t quite so intense.

Labor Day weekend is the perfect opportunity to get away for a quick romantic weekend, girls weekend, or one last family vacation before the school year gets in full-swing.

Here are two fabulous ways to watch fireworks over Labor Day weekend:

  • Gazing into the night sky, fireworks will light up the sky over Sunrise Beach at Bear Bottom Resort. Click here for more details.
  • Hop on a boat and watch the fireworks, floating peacefully on the Lake of the Ozarks. Be sure to check out Tropic Island Cruises or Celebration Cruises.

5 Reasons To Stay At A Vacation Rental Home

iStock_000019101731Large

We might be a little biased, but no matter! There are SO many advantages to staying at a vacation rental home instead of a hotel. Here are our top 5 reasons to choose a vacation rental home for your next vacation:

  1. The Cozy Factor: Let’s face it. It’s tough to get really comfortable at a hotel. The blankets are often scratchy or the sheets on the bed simply aren’t up to par. The dressers are often small and closet space is questionable. No more feeling cramped…vacation rental homes have MUCH more room!
  2. Privacy: How many times have you been awake at night, hearing all of the noises coming from other rooms at a hotel? It’s not pleasant! Taking a vacation is all about rejuvenating and getting the best sleep possible. With a vacation rental, you get all of the privacy and peace and quiet that you could want.
  3. Big Perks: Want to relax in a hot tub? Do some fishing with your kids or grandkids on the dock? Do you want to relax and read while enjoying a gorgeous sunset? These little perks can make a big difference. Sitting on a back porch, sipping your favorite drink sure beats watching a sunset from behind your hotel window!
  4. Eat In or Eat Out: All of our vacation rental properties come with a fully stocked kitchen. Most families aren’t able to eat out for every meal. So pick some oh-so-easy recipes to make for the whole family, then choose a few nights to eat out at a restaurant. Save money and get a break from cooking!
  5. Pet-Friendly: What’s a vacation without Fido?! We have several vacation rental homes that are pet friendly. Making memories is just better when you can bring the ENTIRE family.

5 Reasons to Visit the Lake of the Ozarks This Year

  1. Time to Relax: It’s no secret that most of our days are packed with taking the kids to soccer practice, going to school events, and everything else that fills our calendars. We’re often going at 100MPH. Spending a few days or even a week at the Lake of the Ozarks gives you the perfect chance to slow down. Relax. Lounge around. Nap in a hammock. Soak up the quiet and stillness of nature. Too often, vacations end up being as busy and hectic as our day to day lives. Come to the lake and really let your worries melt away.
  2. Airfare Going Up: Flying to your destination won’t get any cheaper in 2014. According to CNN, seats on airplanes will shrink and fees are likely to increase this year. That means more for checking baggage and more fees when booking your flight. Instead, hop in the car and drive to the Lake of the Ozarks. Road trips are a perfect way to re-connect and enjoy the views along the way.
  3. Something For Everyone: Are you looking for a romantic weekend getaway? A family vacation? A golf outing? A weekend with the girls? There is literally something for everyone at the Lake of the Ozarks. And when you stay at a vacation home rental instead of a hotel, you can have all of the comforts of home without the cost and noise of a hotel. Plus, the Lake of the Ozarks can be fun on any budget!
  4. More Than A Lake: Yes, we love the lake. Boating, water-skiing, and renting jet skis is always a blast. But there’s way more than the lake to keep you entertained. There’s plenty of shopping, fishing, play a round of mini-golf, visit one of the many show caves in the area, see a music show, hike through Ha Ha Tonka Park, visit Big Surf Water park, dig through the many vintage and thrift shops, and eat to your heart’s desire at the lake’s many delicious restaurants.
  5. Beauty All Around: Too often, we’re surrounded by city buildings, lots of honking cars, and concrete parking lots. The Lake of the Ozarks has so many trees, adorned in beautiful colors, a gorgeous, serene lake, walking trails for miles, animals scurrying about, and best of all – FRESH AIR. It’s tough to beat the sunsets and sunrises (if you get up in time) that make getting away so priceless.
