When we thought of Branson, MO we thought of country music shows, hills of trees and lots of old people. We were surprised to find a wealth of fun for young families like ourselves. So we booked our trip for end of June. Here are a few of my favorite photo memories! Don't overlook this place for your next adventure!
DRIVING TO THE OZARKS - Branson or Bust!
Only 110 degrees. (90-100 average)
Our resort with a river view, luxury interior and cooling pools.
The perfect view from a screened in porch - also the perfect lock out time out for the kids.
And free mini golf and other fun stuff!
Don't have pictures, but we had an absolute blast at Dolly Parton's DIXIE STAMPEDE. All four course finger lickin dinner and show, with southern belles, trick horse riders, pig races, red neck humor and North and South rivalry. Never had such a fun time eating out.
SILVER DOLLAR CITY
Buy a season pass (1 week) at SDC and you don't need anything else to stay entertained! A portal the the good old days in America. Half Dollar Hollar for toddlers, Tom Sawyer river boats, craftsman of all trades, country fair rides, circus shows with dog tricks and high wire walkers, splash pads, ball pit, shoot outs, music and comedy shows, shopping and excellent dining and so much more.
Lots of water fun on these hot days. :)
Pushing this solid granite ball on top a water fountain with ease.
A break to cool off and text friends?
Good eatin' at Milly's Mill or the Miner's Basement. The difference? The food's the same but it's either ceramic plates or tin dishes!
You could go and grab a bit of jerky -
Alligator, Kangaroo, Buffalo, Ostrich anyone? mmmm good
or perhaps a sip of filtered water?
Simple fun at the new Half Dollar Holler and splash pad/ball pit!
All trades showing off their skills!
If you want the good ol' Branson entertainment, it's all inclusive at Silver Dollar City!
And don't forget to visit Marvel Cave and the old Train Ride complete with train robbers! A real hit with our kids, and fascinating for adults too! Something for everyone here!
And on your way, you gotta check out the Bass Pro Shops main locations!
Quite a Dam View too…
Wish I could write it off as a field trip!
Only thing I wish for you, that you don't arrive home to a tree in your house like we did! :(
