Next stop, The College of the Ozarks, known as “Hard Work U.” This is more than a college. It’s a destination with two museums, an old-fashioned grist mill, fruitcake and jelly kitchen, stained glass studio. You’ll spend a couple of hours and learn why this unique college is nationally known. Lunch is a farm to table experience in the Dobyn’s Dining Room.

There are 24 entertainers on stage, it has great visual effects, a variety of music – old and new country, rock, current hits, gospel, and patriotic tunes. Or you might enjoy C.J. Newsom and her band the Re-Cliners, proudly bring back the sultry vocals of classic Patsy Cline songs and mixing that with the high energy, foot-stomping arrangements of Dolly Parton, Johnny Cash and Garth Brooks. Either show gives you an outstanding night. (B,D)
