Thanksgiving in Branson Promises Prime Shopping, Thrilling Shows & Holiday Flair


Give thanks this year in down-home style with a late November visit to charming Branson, MO! Cool autumn weather, incredible shopping discounts and all of the preparations for an Ozark Mountain Christmas are in full swing.


Traveling and vacationing during the Thanksgiving holiday doesn't mean you have to give up a wholesome and hearty Thanksgiving dinner. Many Branson area restaurants will be open to serve scrumptious feasts that include main course and all the fixings'. Of course, plenty of other restaurants will likely be open, so call around to check and see what special feasts your favorite is serving!

  • Outback Steak & Oyster Bar
  • Chateau on the Lake
  • Country Kitchen
  • Cracker Barrel
  • Dockers
  • Grand Country Buffet
  • Lonestar Steakhouse & Saloon
  • McFarlain's
  • Bob Evans
  • Texas Land & Cattle at the Branson Landing


Branson shopping will be in top form during the weekend after Turkey Day, so be sure to check out all of the great shopping malls and shops in Branson. Many of the retail outlets will have special hours on Friday, Saturday and Sunday so that the shops can offer you more time to save with their incredible After Thanksgiving Weekend Sale specials! With great prices discounted even deeper for the Biggest Shopping Day of the Year (or Black Friday, as some have come to know it), this is the perfect time to get a head start on your holiday shopping!  Be sure to stop at Branson Landing for great deals and a nice after-meal walk.  The Tanger Outlet mall has deep discounts year-round, but even deeper for the shopping season!  And you can find all types of specialty stores in the Historic Downtown shopping district.


While you're in town, be sure to kick-off the holiday season with some of Branson's stirring Christmas celebrations. The Ozark Mountain Christmas runs through the months of November and December, so you'll be able to enjoy special holiday performances at many Branson shows, unbelievable lighting displays and incredible activities for the entire family. You'll find the entire city is bursting with holiday cheer so infectious that even the biggest Scrooges will be singing along with carols and holiday melodies. Silver Dollar City will be hosting its Old Time Christmas event that features more amazing lights displays and special attractions including the Dickens Christmas Carol musical and the Living Nativity ' and the theme park is even open on Thanksgiving Day!  Often the vibrant fall colors are still clinging to the trees, take in a view from Inspiration Tower at Shepherd of the Hills.

One thing to note when traveling to Branson is that November weather in the Ozarks can be a little difficult to gauge, so be sure to check forecasts before you leave. Since a 75 degree day can lead into a 30 degree day this time of year, it's a good idea to pack for all weather in order to be prepared.

The shows, restaurants and attractions in Branson are more than happy to give thanks to you this year, so pack up the family and enjoy a Thanksgiving week experiencing all of the appeal of this charming entertainment destination! Happy Thanksgiving!

Showboat Branson Belle Lunch & Dinner Cruises
Me and my husband were visiting my mother-in-law in missouri and decided to take our two kids (ages 9 and 15) and go hop on the branson belle because we thought it would be a fun family event!! Some relatives of mine had told me about it and how they had a blast and we thought we would try it out!!! The food was very delicious. Actually, one of the best meals i've ever had in my life. I especially enjoyed the dessert!! The service was great, and the show was pretty good as well. My kids especially loved the talking dogs act as did my husband and i. I would definitely recommend the branson belle to anyone looking for good food, good service, and most importantly a great time!!!!
