The first day of summer has passed which means it’s time to get up and go! Where? To the Lake of the Ozarks of course! Friends, if you are tired of the ordinary, then you need to escape and see all that life has to offer! They say that jobs can fill your pockets but adventures will fill your soul. We’ve got some amazing adventures here near our bed and breakfast and we’d love to have you as our special guest this summer. A top adventure spot around here is the Bridal Cave and Thunder Mountain Park area. Keep reading to learn more about this incredible attraction.
Thunder Mountain Park itself covers hundreds of acres, over a mile of the Lake of the Ozarks shoreline. Bridal Cave, which lies beneath Thunder Mountain, was actually discovered by Native Americans centuries ago. It has been a favorite attraction near the lake for more than 65 years. The cave is one of the most scenic caves in America. You simply must come and experience this natural wonder! This year happens to be their 70th anniversary and to celebrate Bridal Cave is giving away 70 FREE Family Passes in honor of this milestone celebration! You can click here to read more about that!
Bridal Cave has a Guinness World book of record and every year they do vow renewals for couples. Now where else could you get more of a unique experience to confess your love to your special someone? Inside the cave you can see giant columns of stalagmites and stalactites and Mystery Lake…now that peaked your interest didn’t it? The colors and formations are all formed by minerals from rain water that seeps into the ground.
Now inside Thunder Mountain Park there are actually 11 caves to explore and you might get a glimpse of wildlife. Folks report seeing bald eagles, red fox, turkeys, and white-tailed deer. Take a Bridal Cave tour (you might like the lantern tour!), feed the fish at the boat dock, enjoy a lakeside picnic, pan for gemstones at the working sluice, hike a nature trail, or check out the viewing platform on the 100-foot tall fire tower. There’s plenty to do to enjoy a fun-filled day here.
Pick a weekend or come for a mid-week visit and see for yourself why the Lake of the Ozarks is one of the top summer destinations in the country. Once you book your room online, contact us anytime for help planning the perfect getaway. We look forward to seeing you soon!
