Located just 50 miles from Springfield and Branson, Ava offers a small-town atmosphere with big-town amenities. Ava’s business community is diverse with many locally owned and operated businesses, as well as larger retailers and manufacturers. The City of Ava welcomes new businesses and works well with potential business operators and entrepreneurs.
Nestled in the Ozark Mountains, Ava is truly a treasure with forests, fields, and streams, that provide many outdoor recreational opportunities. Ava is also partially surrounded by the Mark Twain National Forest, where the annual Glade Top Trail Flaming Fall Revue is held each year, celebrating the beauty of the Ozark Mountains.
This Treasure of the Ozarks is full of friendly people, fascinating historical and cultural heritage, and diverse educational and employment opportunities.
