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. Dolly Parton's 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
I loved the show. I was never out of a drink and the waiter was so nice. My little niece loved when the fire came out. We did not get to see the horses jump over the fire, but that is completely understandable noting that the horses were bucking and weren’t comfortable. I didn't’t mind not having silverware because that’s just easier for my nieces to break up the food. We have a disabled brother (wheelchair) and the servers moved everything out of the way and treated him like the king. He loved it! The dogs were so cute and amazing. I just have one thing, bring back the lumberjacks! That was my little brothers favorite part of the show (and mine!) we loved the show and can i have the recipe for the ? They are so good. My neices argued over who got my sisters!

This was the first time that we had been to silver dollar city. I loved the atmosphere and especially the friendly staff. Every time your staff would see us looking at a map to find something,they would jump in and ask if they could help!
