Life at the Lake of the Ozarks - There's Nothing Like It!

What do you like the most about living at the Lake of the Ozarks? While our area is famous for hosting thousands of tourists every year, it is home to more than 124,886 locals who make the Lake Area their home year-round. These individuals get to enjoy countless unique opportunities that are hard to find anywhere else. Today, Lake Area Chamber of Commerce is here to explore some of the unique advantages of living at the Lake of the Ozarks.

Diverse Employment Opportunities

While tourism is definitely the dominant industry in our area, the Lake of the Ozarks is home to hundreds of different companies in a wide variety of business sectors. Agriculture, marketing, retail, health services, education, construction, and professional services are just a few examples of the different industries available to local working adults. There are also multiple entrepreneurial resources available to individuals who wish to branch out and start their own companies.

Rise & Fall Of Seasons

One of the most unique experiences of living at the Lake is getting to experience the drastic difference between summer and the off-season. During the winter, the Lake Area feels like a comfortable small town - a community of closely knit locals who pride themselves on supporting a thriving economy. During the summer, the Lake population skyrockets as thousands of tourist and second-home owners flock to the Lake. Traffic picks up, stores become busier, and the lake fills with boats and watercraft of all sizes. Where else can you live in both a small town and a busy tourist destination without ever having to move?

A Myriad Of Recreation Options

Contrary to what some tourists may assume, Lake locals get to enjoy year-round access to countless different entertainment and recreation opportunities. While the summer season does offer a variety of seasonal entertainment possibilities, there are multiple options that are available all year long. Locals get to pick from a wide variety of entertainment possibilities, including...
  • Hiking
  • Swimming
  • Boating
  • Camping
  • Listening to live music
  • Dining at lakefront restaurants
  • Fishing

There are plenty of additional entertainment-geared businesses locals enjoy unfettered access to, including an ice skating rink, indoor trampoline park, a movie theatre, and multiple water parks. Multiple restaurants are also open all year long for both locals and off-season visitors to enjoy.

Multiple Lifestyle Possibilities

Perhaps the best thing about living at the Lake of the Ozarks is the freedom to choose exactly how you wish to live your life. The lifestyles found at the Lake encompass a huge variety. Some people choose to live directly on the water, with their own private dock, boat, kayaks, and other water toys. Some people choose to live in quiet neighborhoods with private swimming pools and walking paths. Some people choose to live in condominium or apartment complexes with exclusive amenities. Other people choose to live just outside the city limits, enjoying easy access to stores and amenities while being surrounded by trees. Still others choose to live out in the country in quiet, woodsy seclusion. While they enjoy vastly different lifestyles, they are all integral parts of the close-knit Lake community we know and love.
