If you’re visiting Poplar Bluff for the first time and want to experience all that Poplar Bluff, MO has to offer, here’s a few suggestions to make your trip memorable.
Poplar Bluff is known as the Gateway to the Ozarks. So while you’re visiting, don’t forget to check out all the natural beauty the area has to offer. We suggest visiting the Stephan J. Sun Conservation Area. It has some of the best views, fishing, and bird watching around. Always wanted to camp under the stars? The average weather for Poplar during the month of March usually has highs of around 59⁰F and lows of around 37⁰F but if you’re brave enough to stay the night you’ll be in for a stunning sunrise. We recommend looking into a heavy sleeping bag, however!
More of a living history buff? Add the Historic Rodgers Theater to your list of things to do while visiting. The theater’s art deco exterior and interior will make you feel as though you’ve stepped back in time all while still having the modern conveniences of AC and heating.
If making family memories that will last a lifetime is your goal, we suggest visiting Hydro Adventures ranked #1 in the area on Trip Advisor. Shake off the cabin fever from this past winter and jump into some fun at Southeast Missouri’s Premier Family Entertainment Center.
The Mega Arcade is full of family-friendly games sure to delight young kids and make parents feel like a kid again. We have games that will help spur on father and son bonding, games of luck like the Big Bass Wheel, racing simulators like Crusin’ Blast and Moto GP, and if you thought you were addicted to Candy Crush or Fruit Ninja before, think again! Your kids will end up having to pull you away from all the fruit slashing fun! Want to spend the day reminiscing about your own childhood? You can play Space Invaders, shoot some hoops on Hoops FX, or challenge your spouse to a round of skee ball. Plus, if you’re a fan of TV Shows like AMC’s The Walking Dead or HBO’s Game of Thrones you’ll fall head over heels for our Game of Thrones and Walking Dead Pinball machines.
Worried that your kids spend too much time on their phones or playing video games? Challenge them to a game of Laser Tag! Not only will you get the whole family moving, but everyone will be having so much fun that they’ll forget to check their social media feeds. The family will love playing mini bowling at our lanes and with the lighter bowling balls even young children can join in the fun! After your fun filled day don’t forget to stop by our café for a relaxing family dinner.
