Branson Valentine's Day
If you’re looking for a fun way to spend Valentine’s Day, look no further than Branson, Missouri. Whether you’re celebrating with a loved one or with your whole family, you’ll find that there’s a lot to do and see on the most romantic day of the year. Since Valentine’s day rests on a Thursday this year, you could even take the whole weekend to experience the best that a Branson Valentines Day has to offer.
Kiss on a Lake Cruise
Many couples go out to a fancy meal at a restaurant for Valentine’s Day. Take it up a notch and impress your better half with a dinner cruise for a grand experience. Main Street Lake Cruises offers a special Valentine’s Day Cruise on their Landing Princess, where you’ll float around on Lake Taneycomo and nibble on juicy roasted chicken, sip on complimentary champagne, and take pleasure in decadent cheesecake.
Fall in Love with Nature
Love is beautiful, and so are the butterflies and more of nature’s alluring creatures that live at the Butterfly Palace and Rainforest Adventure. You’ll walk around in a life-like rainforest with hundreds and hundreds of butterflies flying all around you. Maybe you’ll get lucky and a few will land on you for a really great photo op and a fantastic memory. Other sights to see include the Emerald Forest Mirror Maze and a fascinating insectarium.
Take a Romantic Tour at a Winery
Wine spells romance and there’s a lot of it at the wineries in Branson. Take a winery tour, try out a variety of wines, and have a pleasant afternoon just gazing in your love’s eyes with a glass in your hand. You could rent a limo to drive you to a winery and back, which will both enhance your winery experience and free your mind from worrying about driving. The wineries in Branson include Bear Creek Wine Company, Lindwedel Wine Garden, Mount Pleasant Winery, and Stone Hill Winery.
Pay Tribute to Past Loves
One of the most well-known romantic flicks is Titanic, a story about a pair of doomed lovers. You can recreate some of the best scenes of the movie by visiting the Titanic Museum Attraction. February is Sweetheart Month at the exhibit, which pays tribute to the couples who embarked on the ill-fated ship. Walk up the Grand Staircase and watch other couples do their vow renewals there. Maybe you’ll feel inspired to do one yourself -- just make sure to reserve your spot in advance.
Enjoy a Breathtaking Show
Instead of holding hands at a dark movie theater, buy a ticket to one of the many spectacular shows in town for your Branson Valentines Day. A wide variety of live entertainment is always available to you year-round and that doesn't change during the valentine weekend. From country music to dancers in glittery costumes, from tribute performances of legendary musicians to variety shows that include music and comedy, you’ll find something to watch and delight in.
Relax in a Picturesque Setting
Take your beloved to a lovely cabin or condo to cap off your perfect valentine weekend. Light up a couple of candles and break out the champagne, or go straight to the bedroom -- it’s up to you. You’ll have the whole place to yourself to enjoy however you want. Wake up together to beautiful lake views or the sounds of nature when you stay in a cabin or condo in Branson. Now that’s what we call a perfect Branson Valentines Day.
A day or weekend at Branson can be a truly divine way to celebrate Valentine's Day with your significant other or with your family.Get More Holiday Ideas from the Branson Missouri Blog
