I've heard many friends talk about either going to or wanting to go to Margaritaville in Missouri's Lake of the Ozarks. What's it like to actually walk around the place? Thanks to some vlogs that have been shared, you can see before you potentially make the trip.

I remember vacationing a few times with my parents when Margaritaville was actually Tan-Tar-A years ago. The entrance used to look like this.

Last summer, a mommy vlogger (her term, not mine) shared their family trip to Margaritaville. Lots of family options there still.

Another travel vlogger did a review of Margaritaville showing some of the changes they made from their Tan-Tar-A days.

The official Margaritaville website shows the "play" options include an indoor water park, golf and the marina. One of their managers also dropped a video showing their new bar and grill.

Guessing that Jimmy Buffett would be pleased that his famous song is being used for such a fun place.

It's interesting to me to see one of these legacy Missouri vacation destinations change and adapt to more modern options. The one thing that hasn't changed is the lake itself which never seems to have a dull moment no matter where you decide to spend some time.
