As the holidays approach all over the country, Branson is stringing up it’s Christmas lights and capturing the Christmas spirit for you and your family to enjoy before you go home to cook your Christmas ham or turkey. But what will you do after all of the guests have gone home and the leftovers obliterated? Visit Branson, of course! Branson stays open year-round, so there’s no shortage of things to do if you’re planning a trip in January or February, after the holiday rush is over.
One of the attractions that will stay open into January is White Flight at the Butterfly Palace. You can enjoy one of Branson’s newest family traditions through Jan. 15. Thousands of white tropical butterflies flutter around a 18-foot tall poinsettia Christmas tree while your family looks on in wonder. Living angel statues come to life as you tour the Butterfly Palace, and you’ll get to see the 18 foot tall poinsettia Christmas tree while you’re exploring White Flight. In addition to the butterflies and Christmas magic, your family can learn more about the rainforest and the other butterflies that call the Butterfly Palace home.
