Top 5 Places To Visit At The Lake Of The Ozarks

Lake of the Ozarks located in Missouri is a hot spot for the whole family or a friends get-a-way during any time of the year. However, the summer time brings something a little extra to the table. So this year let’s book a trip on the four of July! This time of the year will bring you, your friends, your family, a time of your life that you will be telling everyone you know for years to come.

1. Want to stay at a hotel? Stay at Tan-Tar-A Resort.

Tan-Tar-A Resort has it all and the list of activities is endless. Do you like to golf? Tan-Tar-A has 27 holes of championship golf. If you go during the forth of July holiday, Tan-Tar-A hosts an annual parent-child golf tournament on the fifth with prizes and loads of fun!

Tan-Tar-A hosts a dance party by the pool and lake the night of the forth where you can watch a spectacular fireworks show to end the night. So go book your reservation at Tan-Tar-A Resort and see for yourself.

2. Thinking of good restaurants at which to eat.

Food, food, food! A very important part of every destination you take into consideration is how much delicious food you can consume while your there. Luckily the Ozarks has a wide variety of amazing food and entertainment to go with it. Some places to consider are Dog Days Bar and Grill, Captain Ron’s Bar and Grill, and last but not least, The Fish and Co. Dog Days provides multiple levels of music and fun. During the summer they are famous for hosting their famous Aquapoluza. This concert event is one not to miss out on. Captain Ron’s always has something going on! With a beach that leads to the lake to swim in, a sand volleyball court, live music, a bouncy house, and even a pirate ship that takes you on a special excursion. The Fish and Co is a favorite among many. After owner Dale Blue took over the restaurant, upgrades were made and now people show up at 4pm on weekend nights to save spots all night long for drinks, music and fun. The best part about all of these places is you can find something for everyone at all of these establishments.

3. Water parks Galore!

If you aren’t one for actually swimming in the lake, then no need to worry! The Ozarks has the Big Surf Waterpark just off of highway 54 with lots to do for all ages. Rent a cabana and stay all day or come for a few hours so the kids can get worn out and sleep on the ride home. Whether its the thrill from the rides, the calm feeling you get from the lazy river, or the enjoyment of jumping waves in a wave pool, Big Surf is the place to be.

4. Crave history?

Visit the old and famous Bridal Cave. Winning a certificate of excellence this breathtaking cave is something everyone should experience. Walk through the amazing cave while learning about facts from your tour guide. This cave has even gotten its name through the many weddings and proposal it has hosted over the years. Maybe it’s something to consider if you are going with your significant other.

5. When there's nothing else to do, go shopping!

If nothing else above seems appealing to you, which if it doesn’t then just stay home or you can go to the Osage Beach Premium Outlets. With multiple outlets to choose and shop from this truly is the place to go and kill some time before dinner or whatever fun activity you have planned. Shop till you drop! After all, you are enjoying your vacation.

Preview These Top Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2020 Picks — From Luxury Purses To Skincare

Currently 3 million people viewing the Stella McCartney purse I absolutely must have.

Online shopping has been a guilty pleasure of ours for years, but now more than ever it's been a shopping lover's outlet for all our home redecorating projects and resort wear we're purchasing for that trip we had to cancel.

One of my favorite places to (virtually) window shop has always been Nordstrom.

But sometimes, that's not enough — that's when I, like the masses of luxury-, beauty-, fashion-, and decor-lovers around the world count the days down to the annual Nordstrom Anniversary Sale.

Trying some of her makeup products myself, I know that she doesn't skimp on quality, and even though some of her products may be a little pricey, trust me, you get what you pay for.

- Though as a little girl, I had the silkiest, softest hair that would get compliments everywhere I went, since I turned about thirteen I've since had coarse, dry hair no amount of deep conditioning masks or sulfate-free shampoo could fix.

- I started using the Raincry's Condition Boar Bristle Brush several months ago, and while I noticed that my hair had been softer, silkier, and shinier than it had ever been, I didn't make the connection because I never thought a simple hairbrush could make any difference in my hair texture.

- I will be the first to admit that I thought it was ridiculous to spend nearly a hundred dollars on a hairbrush, but this one eliminates the need for me to use any heat tools or styling products on it.

- I put some oil or a serum in my hair when it's wet, brush my hair with the boar bristle brush once it's dry, and end up with the lowest maintenance, shiniest hair I've had since I was 8 years old.

Bingeing a romantic comedy is always a good idea, and during this pandemic, these movies bring us one of the only elements of romance we can get. Through all the break-ups, obstacles, and struggles in our love lives, romantic comedies have always been there to make us laugh and keep us company while we cry.

While we love these movies for the beyond gorgeous male love interests, the female protagonists are still the ones we always remember. Although rom-coms are far from reality, it is always fun to imagine what our life would be like if a cinematic studio was behind our love life. So what does your favorite romantic comedies say about your dream guy?

Plenty of people are familiar with the "calories in, calories out" (CICO) method of dieting which can be used for losing, gaining, or maintaining weight. This method relies on calculating a person's total daily energy expenditure (TDEE) to ensure that they are not overeating or undereating to achieve their desired weight. TDEE considers a person's height, weight, age, gender, and level of activity to determine what their caloric intake should be — some calculators can factor in body fat percentage as well. When I used a TDEE calculator online, it said that my TDEE would be 1,990 calories if I was trying to maintain my weight, but are all calories created equal? I'd argue that they're not.

It might seem obvious to some of you that 1,990 calories of macaroni and cheese are not healthy at all compared to 1,990 calories of varied foods (fruit, veggies, meat, bread, etc.).
