3 Travel Tips For a Weekend in Branson
Spending a weekend in Branson is a great way to bond with your family, catch some great shows, and have an all-around amazing weekend. If you are planning a weekend trip to Branson then there are three travel tips you should keep in mind:
1. Pack a Swimsuit- Any weekend in Branson would not be complete unless you are ready to get soaking wet. Silver Dollar City is a great year-round amusement park that is filled with festivals, music shows, roller caster rides and a world class water theme park. You can peruse around in an inter tube or splash around in one of the many pools. There are also plenty of fun things for adults as well. You can take a romantic cruise on the Branson Belle, where the staff and atmosphere will make you feel like a celebrity. As you cruise through the White River, you will enjoy live shows, exquisite food, and fun for you and your spouse or the whole family. This magical journey will make your weekend in Branson a trip to remember!
Silver Dollar city is closed from December to March due to cold weather, so be sure to plan you trip to Branson accordingly!
2. Pack a Sleeping Bag- There is no better way to spend time and bond with your family then to take a trip away from the hustle and bustle of every day life. You can put the iPods and tablet computers away and spend quality time with the whole family.
Branson has many cottages and cabins available which many people use to organize family reunions and vacations. These cabins are also well-suited to accommodate families, couples, or groups of friends. At night the Branson sky unveils millions of stars that are visible to the naked eye. With very little artificial light, you can stargaze with your loved ones. Don't forget to Pack a s'mores kit so you can sit around the campfire and have some munchies while you swap scary stories.
You might also want to bring plenty of towels if you plan to tame the White River on a white water rafting expedition!
3. Bring a Camera and Popcorn!- Between the amazing sites, family memories, and live shows you will need plenty of space on your camera and something to munch on while you become enveloped in one of Branson's live shows! There are so many shows to see in Branson there are too many to list. Every year there are hundreds of family friendly shows, from country and gospel music concerts, to live magic shows, to a vast array of plays and live performances.
