Why the Lake of the Ozarks is Amazing in Autumn

Many people only think of the lake area as a place to be between Labor Day and Memorial Day. Those people are missing out on many amazing months when there are still lots of things to do, see, and enjoy. The gorgeous view from our Lake of the Ozarks fine dining restaurant as the leaves begin to change color is one of those things. Read on to find out what else you can experience when you are in the lake area in the fall.

Breathtaking Scenery
We already mentioned the view from JB Hook's, but it's worth mentioning again! Our 14-mile panoramic view of the lake allows you to take in lots of gorgeous fall colors, as well as that relaxing lake. Often the weather even remains nice enough to sit outside on our covered patio, but if it's not, the floor-to-ceiling windows in the restaurant don't inhibit the view at all. There are many scenic parks with trails to wander all around the lake area, and even a leisurely drive among the trees is a sight everyone should have the pleasure of seeing.   

Live Music
Most evenings in our bar area you can enjoy the entertaining sounds of some of the best live music at the Lake of the Ozarks from 5:30-8:30 pm. We keep an updated calendar of everyone scheduled to play on the home page of our website, so you can always take a look and plan which nights you absolutely can't miss! Check back occasionally for additions, too. 

Here is the lineup for the rest of September, and you can expect the incredible entertainment to keep going next month too.

Fewer People
It can get a little crowded all over the lake area during the summer. If you prefer a leisurely visit without all the crowds, then autumn is the perfect time for you to be at the Lake of the Ozarks. Many of the seasonal attractions are still open for business, plus the weather is still nice enough to let you get outside and enjoy nature. When the fall chill gets to you, head on over to our Lake of the Ozarks restaurant for a hot and delicious meal to warm you up!

The Lake of the Ozarks is a wonderful place to be, and there are all kinds of amazing things to do and see all year long. When you plan your next trip to the lake area, or if you live here all of the time, make sure to stop by JB Hook's. Visiting with all of our incredible customers always makes our great seasons even better!
