Rolla is a great place to vacation with friends or organize family-friendly activities. This is especially the case if you want to do things outdoors or explore the artistic scene of the city.
The Mark Twain National Forest is a beautiful attraction. There are several breathtaking trees and walking paths, so you can get a light workout while you enjoy the scenery. After walking through the forest, you can visit Old Towne Antiques and Furniture to find unique items to decorate your home.
When you want to catch a great show put on by local talent, the Ozark Actors Theater is the place to be. There are also lots of great places to eat nearby, so you can have dinner before or after the show. Eateries in the city include Sawaddee Thai Restaurant, which serves authentic, delicious fare and Bandana's BBQ, which serves some of the best barbeque in Rolla. You can also take the family out for a great Italian meal at Alex's Pizza Palace, where there are also lots of pasta dishes to choose from.
