Quote: Branson is live music, family fun, and outdoor living at it's best all rolled into one exciting vacation. One of the best places for families that I have had the pleasure of vacationing. Kids complaining "there's nothing to do"? Not here!

Branson changed my Mind!

Overview

Quote:
The live entertainment is tops. My parents are hardcore Country Music fans (actually have a piece of the original curtain from the Grand Ole Oprey) and we had 1st row for Charley Pride & 2nd row for Lorrie Morgan. Charley Pride was the best entertainer that I have ever seen. The Grand Palace is fantastic and so up close & personal. Jim Stafford's show is a "Do Not Miss." I laughed so hard I was crying. We rode the Ducks around town then into Tablerock Lake. Definitely recommended! We took a catamaran ride on the Spirit of America for a most relaxing couple of hours. Just outside Branson are so many attractions that you'll be returning year after year. Quick Tips: Best Way To Get Around:...Read More

Best Things Nearby:The main circle of Entertainment theatres were just down the hill. I found this resort was ideal for a hub of the area.Best Things About the Resort:The units. This resort is one of the prettiest I have ever seen. Very well maintained. LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION! The staff at the resort were extremely professional. The planned guest activities were superb. You actually had the entertainers coming to the resort to sing/play to entice you to their shows. Resort Experience:The resort is up a steep hill just off the main Hwy in Branson. First you will see wonderful little log cabins that are privately owned. The rooms are spacious and secluded....Read More

You ride in the restored railcars from the 1940s and 1950s. The trip takes one hour and 45 minutes. It takes you through the Ozark foothills on the famous White River Route. It goes up the hill and returns on the same line. Great for families. Does have food and beverage on board and narration. Get on early for the observation car! Great family fun and I thought a great price.

Ride the Ducks

Attraction | "Ride "The Ducks""

This was great fun and exciting. Nothing like it if you have never done this! First you go to the top of Baird Mountain for a great view of the hills of the Ozarks. Then you go past the fish hatchery, the Showboat Branson Belle, and Lake Taneycomo. Then you splash into Table Rock Lake wher you can actually drive the "Duck". The captains are US Coast Guard certified and provide interesting local lore, travelers tips, and plenty of fun. Tours depart seven days a week and when encountering another Duck, a fun quack attack occurs and gets the tours into the fun mode! Great family fun and fantastic way to see the area.
