This lakeside Missouri hotspot is a veritable treasure trove of entertainment. With dozens of live music shows nightly, mature travelers will find plenty of nostalgic tributes to icons like the Beatles, Dolly Parton, and doo-wop stars of the 50s and 60s. In addition to music, golfing, spas, paddleboat lake cruises, and multiple museums honoring the Titanic, veterans, and Ozark history offer even more enjoyment options.
