It seems to be the only vacation option for old country people...not sure why but I hope I never reach a stage in life where I give up and vacation in Branson

City sucks. Table Rock Lake, Big Cedar, Bass Pro, and Golf are great.

But, I want to emphasize, Branson, itself, SUCKS.

We went years ago and my 14 yr old son went with a group a few weeks ago, they loved it.

Silver Dollar City, go carts, putt putt

It's a family friendly atmosphere as far as I know, if you have kids it should be fun

re: Anyone On The Board Ever Been To Branson, Mo For Vacation?
Let me start by saying you would probably get better results on the travel board --

Yes I have been several times, and yes it is true that there are a lot of shows that cater to older patriotic conservative christian types, so there can be an overly churchy feel that turns some people off. And many of those shows can be too hokey and corn pone. The main drag through town is Hwy 76, very compact with tourist traps and a lot of people. All that congestion can be very frustrating, and it is hot and humid in the summer. Not Louisiana humid, but still steamy.

Aside from that, they have Table Rock lake which is beautiful, several very nice golf courses, also Silver Dollar city which is a cool amusement park. I took my daughter often when she was little. She liked whitewater (water park) magic shows, animal shows, the zoo, acrobat show, titanic museum, bumper boats, swimming at the hotel pool, getting ice cream. There's plenty of things for kids there. We only lived a couple hours away so it was easy to take a quick trip. I enjoyed it, there's plenty of things to do and see. You won't find strip clubs, night clubs, people walking down the street with an alcoholic drink in their hand, massive hotel properties, or Vegas type pool parties. But there are plenty of restaurants with bars if you want to enjoy an adult beverage.

Sadly, I've vacationed there like 5 times.

We did Silver Dollar City every time and also my parents bought a house randomly and then got second thoughts and we didn't move. Weird situation all around.

Never went to any shows or whatever.

This explains a lot about why my mom likes to go see shows there

When we went, yep. Silver Dollar City had one tame water ride, and a bunch of glass blowing, chainsaw carving etc. Not my thing at the time. I'd probably enjoy it more now.

You know this board hates you when you say something this accurate but your downvote/upvote is 9/1.

Seems like driving into town, every other sign advertised those dumb things.

Travel baseball tourney 4 yrs back or so

Not much into city but did Siver Dolalr City and kids loved it. It is a non-crowded Disney quality experience. Highly recommend if that is your thing.
