A Branson, MO vacation is just the thing when you want a true break from your daily life. There is a lot of incredible stuff you can do here. Not only can you be up, close, and personal with nature, but you can also indulge in some heart-pounding adventures here.
Some examples are taking an upside-down ride on an inverted roller coaster, zip-lining through Ozark Mountains, seeing new heights on Gravity Bomb, or participating in high-speed go-karting.
There are many hooked on the charm of the doomed – yes, we are speaking of the ‘unsinkable’ Titanic. If you too like kitschy stuff, Branson’s Titanic Museum is just the place for you. Called the ‘world’s largest museum attraction’, the replica of the boat has been inspired by the famous ship that sunk to the icy depths of the ocean taking many lives along with it.
Its interactive replica makes you feel as if you were on the boat itself when it hit the iceberg. There is a ‘Sinking Room’ with slanted decks and water at the same temperature the ocean was when the ship went down.
You can also purchase whatever strikes your fancy from its gift shop and take home many unforgettable memories of your visit here.
After this, you can head over to the shopping destination, Branson Landing. Situated on the banks of Lake Taneycomo, this area has hundreds of stores you can visit to shop to your heart’s (and wallet’s) desire.
This is a very lively place with lots of restaurants too. You can go to the Paddlewheel which is a riverboat-themed café with superb food and drinks. There is a farmer’s market too and live music too.
Branson Landing also has a gorgeous fountain with hourly shows that are a combo of music, fire, water, and music! It is quite well-choreographed and you’ll enjoy it quite a bit.
Don’t for a minute think that the fun’s ended. You still have the Track Family Fun Park which offers mini-golf, go-karting, laser tag, and much more. It also has Chicago’s Navy Pier Ferris Wheel which allows riders awesome views of the Ozarks and the city of Branson.
Next in line is Top of the Rock. Part of Big Cedar Lodge, this place has a wine cellar, restaurants, golf courses, and even a Civil War cabin you can rent! It also has the Lost Canyon Cave Nature Trail, which is a gorgeous nature park with covered bridges, rock formations, and silvery waterfalls. You can visit the Ancient Ozarks Natural History Museum which houses astounding exhibits from the past like the woolly mammoth and bones of the saber-toothed cat.
It is very hard to go wrong with anything on a Branson vacation. Probably the only thing you’ll feel bad about is the number of days you earmarked for your trip as you’ll feel they were far too few and you’ll wish you had planned for more.
