5 Fall Travel Tips

While summer may be the most popular time of year to take a vacation, the fall season is also a great time for traveling, especially for road trips. There's no better time of year to meander through the Ozark Hills and take in all the beauty of the fall foliage. In today's blog, Summerset Inn Resort offers a few travel tips for the fall season.

1. Take Your Time. 


Fall could arguably be the most beautiful season of the year. Temperatures in Missouri are beginning to drop and the leaves will soon begin to change color. As you're traveling to the Lake of the Ozarks, whether you're coming from across the state or across the country, take your time getting here. While flying may be faster depending where you're coming from, road trips are the perfect way to travel this time of year. The scenery is gorgeous and the weather is still nice enough you don't have to worry about getting stuck in the snow.

2. Try Something New. 


While it may seem easy to run through McDonald's drive-thru because its fast and you can fit more in, be sure to try some of the local food. The Lake of the Ozarks area has a variety of local restaurants with food of a unique style that you can't find anywhere else. If you come early enough in the fall season, you'll still be able to check out the waterfront restaurants. In fact, Dog Days Bar & Grill is within walking distance of our Lake of the Ozarks resort!

3. Step Outside Your Comfort Zone. 


Vacations are a great time to step outside your comfort zone and try something adventurous. Make memories by doing something you've always wanted to do, but never had the courage to try. Maybe you want to go parasailing or take a ride over the Bagnell Dam in a helicopter. The Lake of the Ozarks area offers plenty of activities for you to try this fall season.

4. Choose The Right Travel Companion. 


Depending on where you're traveling from, you could be in the car for a long time. Therefore, its important to pick the right travel companion(s). Choose someone that is also looking for adventure, someone that's not afraid to try the new restaurant with you or fly above the Lake. Sharing the experience with a friend, lover or family member will make the vacation even more special and memorable.

5. Take Pictures. 


While this tip may seem obvious, the fall season offers the perfect backdrop for great pictures. The Lake area is gorgeous when the leaves start to change. Even after your vacation is over and you have to head back home, you'll have awesome pictures to remind you of the time you had here at the beautiful Lake of the Ozarks.

Make this fall memorable by visiting the beautiful Lake of the Ozarks! Start planning your trip today and book your reservations at the best resort at the Lake of the Ozarks, Summerset Inn! Give us a call at 573-348-5073 to learn more about our accommodations and availability this fall season.
