Horseshoe Bend is a picturesque area in the Ozarks. This is an antique lovers paradise. The county seat, Hardy, has so many antique stores in its main shopping center that you need at least 4 entire days to see all the items offered. If you like outdoor activities, it’s hard to beat this area. We were situated on a lake and our grandsons went canoeing with their dad, hiking and exploring the woods. Absolutely gorgeous place!
