Branson in the Summer - Table Rock Lake Vacaction

Branson in the summer is a fun vacation destination. The mornings often begin with a cool fog brought in from the Ozark mountains which is perfect for an outdoor breakfast. As the day begins, it offers extensive opportunities for water activities at three local lakes and also the river. Scuba diving, canoeing, water skiing, and boating are popular activities.

If you want to stay out of the midday heat, there are over 100 indoor theater events, dance performances, music shows, and plays that are available each day. A popular venue is the family friendly Barber Variety Show which has magicians, ventriloquists, and comedians. Broadway themed shows and local musicians are good entertainment to enjoy on a summer night. There are also many concerts frequently available by famous artists. If you want a truly unique experience, stay out of the heat while you tour a cool underground cavern.
