Information: The Lake of the Ozarks, once the largest man-made lake in the world, was created in 1931 with the completion of Bagnell Dam and the Great Osage River Project, the brainchild of the Union Electric Company. Just four months after dam construction began in 1929, the stock market crashed, bringing with it the Great Depression. While the rest of the country faced economic ruin, work on Bagnell Dam provided welcome employment to 4,600 workers at any one time and a total of 20,500 over the two-year construction period. As a result, Central Missouri experienced a time of growth and expansion while other areas endured the hardships of the Depression.

USA Today nominated best lake in America: The 1,100-mile shore of this lake, actually a reservoir, winds in so many directions that locals liken it to a twisted dragon. But Lake of the Ozarks' shape and size also explain its appeal. Cruise along in a speedboat or dangle your legs from a dock; hike in a state park or buy fudge on the Strip; admire bluff-top mansions or slip away to a mom-and-pop resort.
