Springtime in the Ozarks is unlike anywhere else. Today we will see visit some of the greatest places in our region for lush Spring blooming. We will start at Withrow Springs to do a short hike on the Dogwood trail. This time of year the trail should be flooded with bright pink blooms. This hike has it all, amazing colors, access to water, and even some unique caves to poke our heads into.
After a rewarding day saying hello to Spring, we will head to Sassafras Winery. This winery is a gem in the middle of the woods with a deck three times larger than the winery itself. Grad a refreshing drink and take in the sights, smells and sounds of Spring.
Relax after this exciting day celebrating Spring starting in the Ozarks while we drive you home. Go into your week refreshed and relaxed!
