Hollister

Guests who stay with Bluegreen Resorts at its Hollister, Missouri, vacation resort Paradise Point find themselves amid an Ozark wilderness that offers a variety of possibilities for fun. Paradise Point, on the shores of Table Rock Lake, is one of four Bluegreen resorts in the area, with additional choices in the towns of Branson and Ridgedale. A Bluegreen Resorts owner’s home away from home, Hollister offers significant value for your travel dollar, in a welcoming, family-friendly community. Visit nearby Silver Dollar City in Branson, the leading theme park in the area, or take a showboat cruise across Table Rock Lake. Enjoy some trout fishing on any of the clear lakes and streams around Hollister, go horseback riding, hike through the forest, and perhaps encounter wildlife such as elk or bison.

Bluegreen Resorts owners can enjoy a day of fun at Silver Dollar City, which offers special discounts for United States military personnel, past and present. The park offers dozens of exciting rides, including roller coasters and carousels, and others themed with ladybugs, frogs, and other creatures, created especially to appeal to Bluegreen Resorts’ youngest members. And the park’s Half Dollar Holler area features sand tables for sculpting, climbing nets, and funhouses perched in treetops. Musical entertainment is offered year-round, as well as several major festivals at Christmas and other seasons, ensuring that Bluegreen Resorts owners will stay busy whenever they visit Silver Dollar City. Branson offers plenty of other activities as well, including a free historic trolley ride and the Hollywood Wax Museum.

Outdoor activities are just beyond your doorstep in Ozark country. Bluegreen Resorts owners can hike and make camp in a secluded setting in the Mark Twain National Forest, which also contains opportunities for road or mountain biking amid its sweeps of prairie, limestone mountains, rugged terrain, wildflowers, and clear streams.

And Missouri, whose official nickname is “The Show-Me State,” is also often known as “The Cave State,” with good reason: It contains thousands of caves. Bluegreen Resorts can take a tour to see the magnificent underground rock formations and their inhabitants, which include salamanders, bats, invertebrates, and more.
