It's no secret that the Lake of the Ozarks is a party destination in the summer season. It's also well-known that there's plenty to do even in the off-season! But what's less-known is just how much is happening during the holidays.

There are tremendous light displays all across the lake, and many ways to enjoy them. But for those who prefer daylight, Old Kinderhook is the place to be! This lake resort goes all out for the holidays, bringing in a whole Christmas Village and ice rink to convey the holiday cheer.

That's not to say they slouch on the night display, but this fantastic ongoing event brings so much family-friendly fun during the day you can't help but focus on it. Sleigh rides, ice skating, pictures with Santa, Mrs. Claus and the elves, hot chocolate, ornament decorating; the list goes on and on!

Held through most of December, the Christmas Village has just about all of the holiday activities you can think of! Check it out here for the full details, and have a very Merry Christmas!
