Fun Things to do in Missouri

When you are searching for fun things to do in Missouri, look toward the Southwest Corner of the State, and focus on Branson.  In a town of only 10,000 residents, the charming city is home to more fun per capita than probably anyplace in the country.  Branson boasts more than 200 restaurants, more than 50 theaters, two lakes with more than 1000 miles of shoreline, three shopping malls, sixteen parks, twelve golf courses, 25 campgrounds, seven amusement parks, more than 200 retail outlets, and countless other attractions including theme parks, water parks, caverns, museums, mini-golf, go-karts and ziplines.

Regardless of what your idea of fun is, you can find in the Branson area.  The theaters offer more than 100 different shows, from gospel and country, to tribute shows and comedy.  There are several dinner shows where the food comes with a hearty helping of entertainment as well.  Dixie Stampede is a feast to enjoy with your fingers while the area is alive with horses and stunt riders, pig races, and a old time hoe-down.  Head out for a cruise on Table Rock Lake for a dinner and show aboard the Branson Belle.
 
If water sports are on your agenda, you'll find just the thing at either Table Rock Lake, where you can fish for trophy bass, water ski, scuba dive, parasail, jet board, or just party in slow motion on a pontoon; or Lake Taneycomo is a cold water, slow moving trout haven, regularly stocked with brown and rainbow trout grown at the Shepherd of the Hills Hatchery.  The hatchery is located just below Table Rock Dam, and is open for free tours.
 
If adventure and thrill rides fills the bill for you, Branson has you covered.  Silver Dollar City theme park has award winning extreme thrill rides, or White Water is a great family-friendly water park.  Several Ziplines operate in the area, from the Branson Zipline and Canopy Tours, where you can soar from platform to platform above the Ozarks woodlands, or Parakeet Petes, a gondola style zip ride over Lake Taneycomo at Branson Landing.
 
The scenery of the Ozark Mountains is the stuff postcards envy.  So if the great outdoors are calling grab your tent and pitch it at one of the area campgrounds, where you can hike the abundant trails and explore the hundreds of plant and animal species that call the Ozarks home.
 
Fun comes in many flavors, and they serve them all in Branson, Missouri.

Dolly Parton's Dixie Stampede Dinner & Show - Branson, MO
This was by far the best activity we did as a family on our vacation to branson. Our boys, 3yrs and 6yrs, loved every minute of it. I was very surprised that it held our 3yr old's attention as well as it did, he was mesmerized. We almost skipped the pre-show but were so glad that we didn't because it was great! The food was good and the animals beautiful. The riders were skilled and great at what they do. I would highly recommend it to anyone!

Dolly Parton's Dixie Stampede Dinner & Show - Branson, MO
Went to see the christmas show. It was truly amazing. If you weren't in the christmas spirit before you went, you will be after ward. The nativity was beautiful. The north and south feud was so fun, the food was great and so much of it. Don't eat lunch that day. My four year old son, barely ate anything and honestly said about two words, he was so mezmerized by the horses, the ostrich and pig races. Definitely expensive, but if you have to choose, pick this one.
