We drove through the Mark Twain National Forest and were impressed with this treasure in the American Forest/Park system. The Mark Twain NF is broken up, and the area we were in near Rolla was a carpet of green. Peaceful and enjoyable. If you enjoy green areas, then you will like this National Forest!

Ozark Actors Theatre

Reviewed By Rita S

This is simply a must see! We have gone several times in the last year. The performances are top notch. The theatre is small so every seat in the place is a great seat! Words can't do it justice. It really is extraordinary. I would highly recommend this theatre. It is a fun and cheap family outing. You won't be disappointed. We love going as a couple and a family. If you go as a family make sure to check out the family package.

Large place with a lot of unique stuff from many different vendors. My aunt and I usually take an annual trip hitting all of the antique places from Kansas City to Rolla while visiting family in the area. This place is a great way to spend an afternoon and find some cool treasures.

I came here alone while watching a movie for the french language series. The theater was gorgeous, clean, and the staff were all very professional.
