Things you’d Love to do at Downtown Branson on Your Vacation
A Branson vacation this first quarter or 2014 will let you see and enjoy many things you’d love to do in the historic downtown Branson. Whether you’re travelling with your loved one, your whole family, or with some friends, Branson offers tons of attractions for the whole year round. If you’re looking for great shopping and fine dining, Branson has it all for you. Visit many outlet malls, retail shops, and fine restaurants in the heart of Branson for your shopping needs and cravings for delicious foods. You can even travel back in time and tour the Veterans Memoriam Museum, Titanic Museum, and Hollywood Wax Museum.
In the Veterans Memorial Museum, there are over 2000 exhibits that showcase the wars of the 20th Century that included WWI, WWII, Korea, Vietnam, and the Persian Gulf. Here you will see incredible collections of war exhibits covering the depths and heights of human experience. You can also explore ten beautiful halls containing murals, sculptures, objects d’art, historical artifacts and thousands of authentic wartime memorabilia.
One of the most exciting things you’d love to do is to visit the Titanic Museum Attractions. Since its opening day, this museum has generated a steady flow of visitors from across the states and around the world. This museum has built an interactive and permanent Titanic Ship in Branson, Missouri. The museum attractions are Branson’s irresistible tourist magnets. Experience a walk at the Grand Staircase and feel the wonderful times of the rich and famous passengers getting-together. You can also come up to the bridge, steer the ship or learn to send an SOS signal.
If you like to get up close and personal with your favorite star, visit the Hollywood Wax Museum in Branson. Get ready with your camera, take picture the life-size wax of Lucille Ball to Lucy Lui, Elvis to Will Smith and John Wayne to Johnny Depp. Step around the Yellow Brick Road and encounter Frankenstein and Freddy. Inside the museum, don’t forget to get a chance to take a photo of the gargantuan 40-foot King Kong.
While spending your vacation in Branson, don’t forget to visit its most unusual building, the 12,000 sq. foot Ripley’s Odditorium where everything is cracked. This rare building has jaw dropping oddities, unbelievable artifacts, world records, pranks of nature, cool inter-actives, amazing illusions and awesome works of art. See some few newest additions of a pair of horses made from welded horseshoes and a full size stagecoach made of 1.5 million toothpicks. There are also African fantasy coffins, a laser shooting gallery and not to be missed the wacky “spinning vortex” tunnel.
