Fall Fun to Enjoy at the Lake of the Ozarks

There are a LOT of fun events and attractions happening around the lake area throughout October. Most are taking place just a short distance from our Lake of the Ozarks Mexican restaurant. That means you can add lunch before or dinner after at Mexicali Blues and make an entire exciting day out of it! (More than 1 day actually. There really are a LOT of things going on!)

After you pick out a few events to enjoy, start making plans. We highly suggest including a lunch or dinner of the best Mexican food at the Lake of the Ozarks in those plans. After all, you're going to need plenty of energy for all of that fall fun!

Beyond those activities, simply driving around the lake area and enjoying the gorgeous ever-changing colors of the season is enough to entertain anyone. Mexicali Blues in Osage Beach is open at 11:30 am every Taco Tuesday-Saturday. Enjoy your autumn outings and then come in and tell us all about them over a hot meal and maybe a margarita or two!
