5 Reasons Why We LOVE Our Lake of the Ozarks Tourists!

This week, May 2-10, is National Tourism Week, and that has all of us here at Wobbly Boots BBQ thinking about all of the amazing people that we get the chance to meet each new summer season.  Don't misunderstand, we still LOVE our regulars.  They play a huge part in getting the word out to the tourists that Wobbly Boots Roadhouse is the best BBQ Restaurant at the Lake of the Ozarks.  People visiting our wonderful town can't help but stop by when they hear how much our local patrons love us.

What makes a tourist someone special?  Well here are 5 reasons why this Lake of the Ozarks restaurant welcomes them with open arms:

  1. Tourists help to wake up a hibernating Lake of the Ozarks.
    • We all still live, work, and play here over the winter, but when Spring rolls around, specifically around St. Patrick's Day, we start yearning for the lively Summer season.  Tourists bring along a hustle with them that really makes the Lake area feel awake again.
  2. Tourists' vacation-vibe spills over to us.
    • When we see visitors that are all happy and excited to be on vacation, we can't help but pick up some of those happy, excited vibes ourselves.  Seeing someone enjoy themselves doing what we get to do every day helps us to appreciate it just a little bit more.        
  3. Tourists give us a new perspective on our hometown. 
    • Living here all of the time, sometimes we forget to see exactly what is in front of us.  It starts blending into the background after a while.  When we get to see a tourist enjoying something that we have started to take for granted, we get a chance to enjoy it all over, seeing it like it's brand new again.   
  4. Tourists love to hear why the Lake is special to us.
    • There are plenty of things that never get old, even if you do live here year-round.  Tourists LOVE to hear about all of those things that are so fun that we never get tired of them.  The best thing you can do for a visitor is to send them to your favorite places in town (like Wobbly Boots Roadhouse!) so that they can experience the REAL Lake of the Ozarks like we see it.  
  5. Tourists expose us to a little of their own hometowns.
    • Part of the fun of living in a vacation town is getting the chance to hear about all of the places that our tourists are visiting us from.  Striking up a conversation with a tourist while you are sitting around the bar can lead to a very entertaining evening.  Sometimes, even a brand new friend to keep in touch with.

So, there you have it.  Tourists are a large part of what makes the Lake of the Ozarks a great place to be in the summer.  Locals- take a little time this week to invite someone form out-of-town to visit us.  They are sure to fall in love with the area and come back again and again. Tourists- be sure to let us know where you are visiting from when you stop into Wobbly Boots Roadhouse.  We love experiencing your town through your stories, too.
