Activities in Branson Missouri vary based on season!
Here’s an account of one person’s Recent Branson Visit:
We just returned from a four day visit to Branson. This was my first trip. We were very impressed with the picturesque scenery the closer and closer we got to the city. The trees were just beginning to blossom in white, pink and purple flowers. The weather was in the 70s and we did not ever need a sweater or jacket, even at night.
The atmosphere of Branson is very family friendly. It was so much more laid back and refreshingly wholesome, compared to the cheap glamor and glitz of Las Vegas. The regular/big named shows begin April/May, but we really enjoyed I the Pierce Arrow Show, Clay Cooper Show and the Dixie Stampede @ Dolly Parton’s theatre. We also visited the Butterfly Palace where we walked through a live butterfly habitat exhibit … butterflys were all around us. The one hour video on the life and habits of the monarch butterfly greatly inhanced our appreciation for our tour. The Butterfly Palace includes interesting exhibits of rain forrest critters, a mirror maze and great gift shop. We also road the Ducks (WWII terrain vehicles) that take visitors through a tour of the Branson and then it splashes into the lake for more siteseeing.
Branson offers a very relaxed destination and lots of family activities for all ages. Branson’s attractions are nicely spread out throughout a wide area. Many are within walking distance along the strip for easy access & convenience, while others are situated through out the rolling terrain.
Early Springtime was a perfect time to visit Branson. The temperatures were modest and without humidity.
We very much enjoyed the staff and accommodations of the Savanna House. It was located up on the hills overlooking the Ozarks. (ten minutes from the main strip) The Savanna’s scenic outdoor seating area overlooked the mountains and offered great sunset viewing. We loved the free breaksfast and evening desserts. We would go back there anytime.
Branson is very very refreshing vacation desitination for many reasons. We would go back anytime. How beautiful those rolling hills must be when in Fall colors!!
