Getaway To Branson, Missouri
At first glance, Branson, Missouri may sound like your average Midwest town. After all, its population is less than 7,000, and it only has an area of about 18 square miles. But the saying “big things come in small packages” could not be truer, and Branson has come a long way from its roots as a small town in southwest Missouri.

With more than 7.5 million visitors each year, Branson has become one of the nation’s most popular vacation destinations. Its convenient location in America’s heartland is just one of the many reasons the city has risen in popularity, and with such a variety of things to see and do, it’s easy to see why visitors return here year after year.

For many, the draw to Branson is its shows, attractions, and shopping. For others, it’s the area’s pristine lakes and rolling Ozark hillsides. Either way you look at it, this vacation destination has it all.
The area plays host to over 50 theaters with more theater seats than you’ll find in New York City’s Broadway. It’s shows range from a variety of music genres to comedy, magic, acrobatics, impersonators, and Broadway-style productions. You’ll even find dinner shows like the Dixie Stampede and the Showboat Branson Belle.

The city is also home to world-class theme parks like Silver Dollar City, a variety of interesting museums including the world’s largest Titanic Museum attraction, several arcades, go-karts, miniature golf courses, and other great attractions, as well as hundreds of restaurants, three outlet shopping malls, and more. One of its newest shopping attractions is the Branson Landing bordering beautiful Lake Taneycomo, where you can ride a trolley, shop along cobblestone streets, watch street performers, relax and dine by the water, or even catch a water show!

Those who love the outdoors enjoy the area’s three gorgeous lakes. In fact, Table Rock Lake boasts some of the best bass fishing around, while Lake Taneycomo claims the best trout fishing. Other popular lake activities include parasailing, swimming, boating, jet skiing, and scuba diving. If you prefer dry land, you can always take a nature walk or trail ride through the area’s beautiful countryside or try your swing at one of 12 world-class golf courses.

Plus, the Branson area hosts a variety of exciting festivals and events. Here craft festivals, car shows, patriotic celebrations, historical festivals, and beautiful Christmas displays can all be found. One of its best-known festivals, Branson Fest, gives attendees the chance to sample a variety of the area’s live shows and restaurant fare all from one convenient location.
The places to stay are just as varied as the entertainment choices. From economy class hotels to 4-star resorts or luxurious waterfront cabins and condos, there’s a place for everyone in Branson.
