5 Beaches In Missouri That’ll Make You Feel Like You’re At The Ocean

Does a summer day get any better than when we spend it at the beach? We can sunbathe on our beach towel on top of the soft sand then cool down with a trip to the lake that hugs the sandy beach. Beach volleyball, summer goodies like ice cream, and cloudless skies all make those beach days some of the most memorable of summer. Here are five beaches in Missouri that, if you close your eyes, will make you swear you’re at the ocean.
