The Best Times to Visit Branson During Seasonal Weather

You do Paris in the spring, upstate New York in the fall, Florida in the winter, and Yellowstone in the summer. But when do you do Branson? Any time of year is ideal for a trip to Branson since there is plenty to do all year long. Here some pros and cons for the different seasons of Branson:

Spring

There's a magic to Branson in the spring if what you're after is a quiet, yet full view of the city, and you don’t have to be bothered by the chaotic traffic. For the most part, shows in Branson get geared up for the season throughout March and sometimes as early as February. Since shows are just starting up again, the productions are often fresh and more motivated than later in the season.

Summer

For visitors with children, summer in Branson is the perfect time for a family trip. Summer offers numerous options for a fun family adventure with plenty of outdoor activities including White Water, Silver Dollar City, Shoot for the Stars Mini Golf,, Branson Zipline and Canopy Tours, and other exciting outdoor attractions. Since Missouri can get pretty steamy during the summer months, so (unless you have young ones) stick to spring or fall for overall comfort.

Fall

Like the spring, you won't have to mess with as much traffic if you visit in the fall. Since the shows are close to the end of their seasons, visitors will see a more practiced and polished performance. The weather tends to be cooler (light jacket weather), but the changing autumn hues of the trees on the rolling Ozarks hills provides an excellent environment for a day-trip to one of the local parks or an attraction like Inspiration Tower, Silver Dollar City, Branson Zipline and Canopy Tours, Horseback Trail Rides, Chopper Charters Branson Helicopter Tours and other attractions in Branson. Be sure to check out the Ozark Empire Fair and Farm Fest during your stay in nearby Springfield.

Winter

Most shows in Branson run from about March until Christmastime. During Christmas, the city truly glistens and qualifies for an excursion to see the millions of lights which adorn the theaters and shops along the 76 Strip. The warmth of the city's spirit during this time far outweighs the chilly outdoors, and favorite locations during Christmastime include Silver Dollar City, Trail of Lights, Branson Titanic, Dolly Parton’s Dixie Stampede, Miracle of Christmas, and many more Christmas-themed shows and attractions.

Silver Dollar City
A wonderful family getaway!! Silver dollar city is so much fun even though the lines are long the park is full of wonderful things to do. I would highly recommend the saloon show, both of my kids loved it (3yrs and 5 years ) . We will be coming back again very soon. I would recommend silver dollar city and branson to anyone i knew.

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!
