The Jewel of Missouri Tourism

When Rueben Branson built a post office and general store on the banks of the White River in Missouri back in the 1880s he could never have guessed what would become of the town which bears his name.

Branson, Missouri has become one of the top tourist destinations in the entire country.  From humble beginnings of small family music groups, float-fishing trips on the river, and a cave where square dances were held, the city has grown to be renowned as the Live Entertainment Capital of the World.
 
Branson is certainly proud of its entertainment.  Boasting more theater seats than Broadway in its more than 50 theaters hosting more than 100 shows, Branson offers a wide variety of musical and other performances.  Gone are the days when the few theaters on the strip offered a country music and hillbilly comedy routine.  World-class performers, many of whom have theaters bearing their name are regulars in Branson.  Shoji Tabuchi Theater is infamous not only for the amazing musical talent and exquisite choreography, but for the luxurious decor in the theater's restrooms.  The Starlite Theater features regular appearances from comedy great, Paul Harris; Country Music star Billy Dean, and many theaters have special appearances throughout the year hosting artists like Sawyer Brown, Bill Cosby, Wynonna Judd and Clint Black.  A couple of the original shows are still in town, too, although they have greatly increased the capacity and technology of their theaters you can still see The Baldknobbers, and The Presleys.
 
But its not just the live entertainment that draws millions of visitors each year.  The city is home to more than 200 restaurants, including dinner and show venues like the Dixie Stampede, and The Showboat Branson Belle.  Shopping malls, and retail outlets number more than 200, from the Branson Landing Shopping, Dining, and Entertainment District, to discount shopping at Tanger Outlet Mall, and dozens of specialty shops in the historic downtown.
 
Seven amusement parks with award winning roller coasters and water slides are a huge reason to visit Branson.  Silver Dollar City, built at the site of Marvel Cave is a theme park designed to resemble an 1800's village, leaving the natural beauty of the Ozarks intact as much as possible.  More attractions are being added to the area all the time, the latest trend being the zipline rides.  Branson Zipline and Canopy Tours, The Vigilante, and Parakeet Pete's which is a gondola zip ride over Lake Taneycomo.  The strip is dotted with golf kart attractions, museums, and miniature golf.
 
The outdoor vacationer has plenty of options in Branson as well.  Two lakes, with more 1000 miles of shoreline, offer ample water sports.  Boating, skiing, scuba diving and parasailing are all favorites on Table Rock Lake.  But its the fishing that drew many of the area's first tourists, and still does today.  Table Rock is renowned for Bass, Catfish and Walleye, and the cold waters of Lake Taneycomo are a trout angler's dream.  The Shepherd of the Hills Hatchery keeps it well stocked with Brown and Rainbow.  You can find 25 campgrounds, 16 parks, and a dozen golf courses to round out your outdoor activities. 
 
Ideally located in the heart of the Ozark Mountains, Branson is within a day's drive of one third of the United States population.  It is the number one motor coach destination, and Branson Vacation Packages, which bundle lodging and activities are also a huge draw for the nearly eight million annual visitors.
 
Branson is a gem, the jewel in the crown of Missouri Tourism.

Dolly Parton's Dixie Stampede Dinner & Show - Branson, MO
We have been to the one in branson 4 times and went to the one in tennessee once. The first time we went..... Shock!!! We laughed so hard, and clapped and stomped our feet. We had a blast!! The second time we took our daughter and her husband. They had just as much fun as we did the first time, and believe me we still loved it. The 3 time we came alone again... Just cant stay away. The 4 time we brought our other daughter, her husband and 2 children. They couldn't believe they could have so much fun and still get the kids to eat. The show in tennessee is the same as the one in branson. And the food is just as good. We are coming back this year!! Our son is going back to iraq and we feel this is the best show to bring him to before he goes!!! We have 3 military guys in our group this year, and i cant think of a better way to honor all 3!!!

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!

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!!!!
