Between Memorial Day and Labor Day, Lake of the Ozarks attracts more than 3.5 million tourists -- and fills with 10,000 boats on holiday weekends. The Central Missouri recreational paradise, called "the Magic Dragon" because of its serpentine shape, is the largest man-made lake in the United States. It measures 92 miles long and contains 1,100 miles of shoreline -- more than the State of California. Completed in 1931 at a cost of $30 million, Bagnell Dam, like the Hoover Dam, created a beacon of hope during the Great Depression when it provided thousands of jobs. Today, the lake is a beacon of relaxation and vacation. Hear more on TRAVEL ITCH RADIO Thursday, May 18, when Lagina Fitzpatrick, executive director of Central Missouri's Tri-County Lodging Association, visits the show for a half-hour talk with Dan Schlossberg and Maryellen Nugent Lee. Listen live at 8p EDT on iTunes or BlogTalkRadio.com or catch the show after airing on our Facebook page. This is the 504th episode of our 12-year run.
