National Tiger Sanctuary was established in 2000 to create a safe haven for animals and to teach visitors about the environment. The educational facilities explore the conditions that are affecting the planet?s ecosystems, and a group of resident tigers and lions demonstrate the potential beauty of the earth. The Sanctuary houses both big cats, including a mountain lion and a black Asian leopard, and domestic cats and dogs, which often come through homelessness or abandonment. While living at the sanctuary, tigers eat only food approved for human consumption, each portion weighed to the health needs of each animal. Staff members get to know every cat in their care to discover their particular likes and dislikes, and to learn about their personalities. To reduce stress, humans never go into the animal area and never lock the cats in at night.
Year-round, the Ozark Yacht Club provides visitors with a gateway to the 40,000-acre Lake of the Ozarks, a place to store and rent boats in premium wet slips or on-land, and prime spots for hanging out?like the lakeside caf? and sandy swimming beach, to name just two. Mariners with their own watercraft can launch boats up to 60 feet long, while boatless sailors can browse through the extensive fleet of sailboats and powerboats available for rental, sale, and privateering excursions. There's also a clubhouse with a large room that can accommodate up to 150 guests during private events and celebrations.
Even if you're running into some bad luck on its 18-hole miniature golf course, it's difficult to feel anything but relaxed at Ozarks Beach Club. That's because the club transports guests to a tropical island with its laid-back tropical theme, enveloping rounds with gurgling waters, sand, and palm trees. Though they probably won't cross paths with sunbathing pirates looking for some help with their lotion, guests will most definitely come across the club's concession stand stocked with cold drinks, candy, and ice cream. A large on-site patio area also beckons to birthday parties and other group gatherings.
The speed of a jetski. The stance of a snowboard. The high-flying tricks of an acrobat. Atop the water-jet-propelled flyboard, these three extreme activities come together to give clients a unique thrill. With a wakeboard strapped to their feet and powerful jets of water blasting from nozzles in hand, guests soar over the surface of the water, doing spins, flips, and vaudevillian dance routines. And, to ensure safety and fun, Sky Surf Ozarks' instructors help clients get their water legs before releasing them to rocket above the waves and lasso errant gulls.
A charming neighborhood eatery, Riverwalk Jazz Café dishes up a menu of homemade soups, sandwiches, and other lunch delicacies. Clientele crowd for bread-meat-bread amalgamations such as the Cab Calloway club with ham, turkey, bacon, and veggies, hugged by white or wheat slices or a croissant, and served with a side ($7.49). The Black & Blue salad sates the famished with shaved Angus roast beef, blue cheese, red onions, tomatoes, walnuts, and croutons ($7.99) and grilled chicken wraps with two sides ($7.99) make stomachs sing and hankerings hush. Teas, coffees, and desserts prove steaming sippables and smile-triggering endorphins pair well with jazzy tunes.
