Could it be better than RVing? I guess you wouldn’t have to worry about your slides being in the way of a tree or electric box! 🙂

If you like rolling hills and coaster thrills, consider planning a trip to Silver Dollar City just west of Branson (MO). Silver Dollar City is an 1800s theme park with a handful of roller coasters, water-themed rides and toe-tapping shows. There are a number of craftspeople and specialty shoppes, in addition to some older attractions to see. And don’t forget the train ride! 🙂

With the numerous shows schedules and rides there is just no way to enjoy the whole park in just a few hours. So if you are one of those folks who want to see and do it all, plan on a second-day visit.

Like other theme parks, admission and food costs are high. But free parking is available and they have tram service from each parking lot so you can save your feet for the hilly park. If you are just passing through the area and want to visit, they  have designated RV parking.

The one thing I would not have expected to see in the Ozarks! And don’t even get me started about King Kong across the street! 😉

If you find yourself along highway 65 in the southern part of Missouri, make sure to plan a day at the Ralph Foster Museum near Hollister (MO). The Ralph Foster Museum is located inside the College of the Ozarks and offers visitors three floors of items related to the Ozark region.

Although the museum covers everything from handmade dolls and antiques to weapons and natural history, one of the most popular attractions is the original truck used in “The Beverly Hillbillies”. The museum is air-conditioned and has an elevator for those who are limited on stairs.

While you are there, don’t forget to visit the Edwards Mill and other attractions located on the campus grounds.

Admission to the Ralph Foster Museum is $6 for adults and $5 for seniors. Since the museum is located on a college campus, parking is only for smaller vehicles. So leave the rig and take the tow.

For more information and museum hours, visit their website at: http://www.rfostermuseum.com/
