There are many, just like you, who would love to leave the noise behind and immerse themselves in nature in Branson’s great outdoors. With so much on offer, from hiking to sailing to kayaking to surfing to paddleboarding, the only hitch is your own energy level. If you are raring to go, Branson can keep you occupied for days.
You can start your sojourn here from the Marvel Cave at Silver Dollar City. It has not one but two honors to its name – it is one of the biggest caves in the entire state and its Cathedral Room is one of the biggest cavern openings on the continent!
There is a theme park on top of the cave, called Silver Dollar City. You can enjoy many of its famed attractions. Then you can either take the ramps or stairs which go 500 feet below the ground and take the cable train back to the surface.
An iconic stop here is Billy Gail’s Café. A local favorite, this eatery is chock-full of gorgeous antiques which you can buy and take home as souvenirs. You can stuff yourself to the gills with southern delicacies here, like biscuits and gravy, grits, hubcap pancakes, and more. All you need to bring along is an empty tummy and you are set. Be warned though – their portions are huge!
Once full, you can indulge in some sweaty stuff at Table Rock State Park. Those who love water will never want to leave this stunning natural delight that encompasses Table Rock Lake and its woodlands. You can go boating, swimming, fishing, and even scuba diving. If you want to be on land, you can bike and hike as well. And all of these in mesmerizing natural environs – you will feel truly one with nature here.
A must-do here in Branson is Dolly Parton’s Stampede, which is a popular dinner theater show. It is a super entertaining mix of musical numbers, comedy, and trick horseback riding all rolled into a show. While watching, you can chomp on barbequed pork, corn, biscuits, rotisserie chicken, and other dishes.
And if you liked this one, you’ll love the Presleys’ Country Jubilee which is a heady mix of comedy, country, gospel, and bluegrass. This wildly popular show will uplift your spirits and make you laugh your guts out!
As you can see, Branson is a very special place. Its strength is its strong country personality which is a huge draw for tourists from far and wide. While it has a modern flair, it is reminiscent of the good ol’ days.
