Nestled within the beautiful highland region known as The Ozarks, Branson is best described as a family-friendly Las Vegas. The lively Missouri city also features its very own strip filled with live entertainment, neon lights and elaborately decorated buildings.
Branson has a seemingly endless array of entertainment for all ages, but one must-see is the 1880s-style theme park of Silver Dollar City. It’s home to over 40 rides and attractions, such as rollercoasters, live shows and local craftspeople demonstrating how the likes of blacksmiths, glassblowers and potters plied their trade in the Old West. The park is also home to Whitewater which offers a huge variety of thrilling water slides and an 800-foot-long lazy river.
The family-fun hub of Branson is filled with things to do. Live shows are a staple of Branson’s strip, which can be enjoyed at almost any time of day. A ride along the Branson Scenic Railway will give you an incredible journey through the foothills of the Ozark Mountains. You can enhance your trip with a four-course candlelit dinner and views through domed glass ceilings in specific carriages. The city’s cultural sights also have an extra wow factor, such as the Titanic Museum which is housed in a half-scale replica of the ill-fated vessel. Inside you’ll find a replica of the Grand Staircase which took a million dollars to construct and over 400 objects related to the ship.
