Fun Facts About 4th of July

Just in case you need some interesting dinner conversation over the holiday weekend, we looked up some fun facts about the Fourth of July that you may not be aware of.

- Fourth of July is the biggest hot dog holiday of the year, with Americans consuming about 155 million hot dogs on Independence Day alone, according to TIME magazine.

- Due to concerns about the Liberty Bell cracking, it hasn't been rung since 1846. Instead, every year, the 2,000-pound bell is tapped 13 times to signal bells across the country to starting ringing to mark the Fourth of July.

- Only two Founding Fathers signed the Declaration of Independence on July 4, 1776. The majority of them signed it on August 2, 1776. Fourth of July doesn't celebrate the signing of the Declaration. Instead, it celebrates the adoption it by the Second Continental Congress.

- While Fourth of July has been celebrated since 1777, it wasn't declared a federal holiday until 1870.

- In the now-famous letter that was dated July 3, 1776, John Adams writes to his wife, Abigail, that the "Second Day of July" would be celebrated as American Independence Day, since Congress had actually voted to cut ties with Great Britain the day before.

Cruising The Lake

When you're at the Lake of the Ozarks, you have to take advantage of spending time out on the water. Pack up the essentials and hop on your boat and spend the morning fishing. The Lake of the Ozarks has some of the best fishing in the midwest, and there is no better person to enjoy it with than dear old Dad. Don't have a boat? Don't worry! There are plenty of rental places in the area, and lots of good spots you can reach by land.

Spend The Day Exploring

There is no shortage of fun family attractions. The Lake of the Ozarks State Park is filled with hiking trails, picnic areas and even a couple of beaches. A short drive down the highway and you'll find Ha Ha Tonka and Bridal Cave & Thunder Mountain Park. Spend the day exploring some of the area's natural beauty.

Hit The Links

There are over a dozen golf courses in and around the Lake of the Ozarks. If that's your father's favorite activity, then there is no better way to spend this day with him. However, if golf isn't his thing, maybe a rousing round of mini-golf would be better suited and fun for the whole family. There are lots of other sporting opportunities available in the area too. Race each other in go-karts or hit the lanes in a round of bowling. You can also challenge each other in lazer tag or shoot a little skeeball on the Bagnell Dam Strip. You can find family fun for everyone here at the Lake of the Ozarks.

We think not!) On Father's Day, enjoy our extensive half-price appetizer menu, along with buy-1-get-1 drink specials on well drinks and house wine, including our delicious, homemade Sangria.
