A pair of bare feet sways over sun-glistened waters. They?re not dangling from the pier, though, but a rainbow-colored parasail that tows patrons aged 5 to 95 through the air for panoramic views of the watery region and the Ozark Mountains. During sky-bound jaunts, Lake Ozark Parasail?s boat captains can slow down to dip parasailers in the drink or keep them high and dry by keeping them soaring the whole time.
Bass fishing seems to be in Jay Grave's blood. Jay inherited his love of angling straight from his father, who taught him how to catch and haul in the large fish in the Iowa Great Lakes before he could even walk. When he grew up, it was no surprise that Jay would enter the world of career fishing. After fly-fishing stints in a few western states, he returned to the Midwest to compete in tournaments, winning Southwest Minnesota Bass Casters Club's Big Bass Payout in 2011. Eventually, Jay settled in Lake of the Ozarks, founding Grave Fishing, LLC to teach others how to fish in the bass-rich waters. He even offers tournament-style experiences, in which he competes with his passengers in a contest to see who can snag the most fish or Jimmy Hoffa pinky rings.
Sprawled atop rippling Missouri foothills, Seven Springs Winery's 160 acres affords guests views of forests stretching out before them that change colors throughout the seasons. Amongst the lush, green landscape, the vineyard springs up with rows of grapes, wine-bottle bushes, and a welcoming tasting room. Wine tastings let guests experience a wide range of Seven Springs Winery's reds, whites, and blushes, including varietals such as chardonel and pinot noir. The vintners and knowledgeable bartenders also welcome aficionados and the wine-curious to sip a glass of wine, sangria, or microbrew from the covered porch or patio, and a selection of soups, sandwiches, cheeses, breads, and dipping oils can be called upon to enhance the experience.
