Top 3 Summer Activities in Southwest Missouri

1. A float trip on the river

A float trip is a personal favorite of ours during the hottest parts of summer. Nothing's better than beating the heat by hanging with some friends, renting a raft or kayak and relaxing on the river! This activity is perfect for those located in both SWMO and NWA since both are close to multiple rivers. Check out Elk River for something close by, or if you're feeling more adventurous take a quick drive down to Buffalo River and be one of the many to "Float the Buffalo." The White River, Spring River and the Mulberry are other nearby options to check out if you just can't get enough! 

2. A day trip to Silver Dollar City

If you're up for thrill, adventure and time travel, Silver Dollar City is the place for you. Here you can experience the 1880’s in all of its glory! Take your pick from riding roller coasters, cooling off with a water ride, eating a yummy funnel cake or watching a show performed by the SDC employees! This is a great option for those with littles - there are rides for all ages, plenty of air-conditioned snack stops along the way, and multiple family rooms with changing tables scattered throughout the park. No matter what you choose to do at SDC, we know you'll have a great time. 

3. A camping trip in the Ozarks

If you're all about the outdoors, camping in the Ozarks is perfect for you. There are so many campsites to choose from, you can't go wrong with whichever one you pick! Enjoy a walk in nature, a bonfire by the water and roasting marshmallows with your friends and family. For more inspiration, check out the top twelve greatest campsites in the Ozarks !

Top 3 Summer Activities in Northwest Arkansas

1. Attend an Arkansas Naturals baseball game

If you're a sports fanatic and love attending baseball games, you should consider attending an Arkansas Naturals game at Arvest Ballpark. The Naturals are an AA minor league affiliate for the Kansas City Royals! Nothing beats watching a baseball game and eating a stadium snack on a hot summer day. And if you come on select days, stay to enjoy the fireworks show at the end! 

2. Reserve a bay at Topgolf 

Ever wanted to hit golf balls off the top of a building? Well, now's your chance! Topgolf is a premier entertainment destination in Rogers. Here you can enjoy food, beverages, and music, all while getting in a few rounds of golf. So grab your best friends and family members and "drive" yourself on over to TopGolf!

3. Take a tour of Crystal Bridges

If art and creativity are your thing, then you need to check out the Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art in Bentonville! The best part about Crystal Bridges is that it is FREE. You heard that right, there is no charge for visitors. Art is not the only unique feature included during your Crystal Bridges experience. You can also observe the architecture of the facility, walk or bike the nature trails or sign up for a tour of a limited time exhibition. Crystal Bridges is a great place to take a family of all ages, as everyone will leave entertained! Learn more about Crystal Bridges and all it has to offer.
