Vacation Ideas, Shows, and Dining in Branson, Mo

Branson is a gateway of entertainment for every family. From the flash and magic of Las Vegas to the historic seasonings of the Old West, you'll find what you're looking for in one complete package.


Country excitement is at a premium in Branson, with classic acts like the Paul Harris Show, with country comedians and musicians, Paul Harris and The Cleverlys.

Music lovers aren't limited to country, however. Broadway - The Star-Spangled Celebration brings songs from such shows as Grease, Cats and My Fair Lady to the stage. See the best numbers from all the brightest shows in New York City, complete with costumes, sets, music and dancing that rival those straight from the Big Apple. The Haygoods mix dance, music and acrobatics in a performance highlighting everything from classical to contemporary favorites. The eight-sibling act offers a feast for the imagination with vivid sets, costume and lights, complete with pyrotechnics.

Travel back in time with Lost in the Fifties, a fast-paced show with dancing, singing and skits. The kids will love the sights, as more than 70 songs from the Bobby Sock-era light up the stage. After that, hit Legends in Concert, featuring celebrity look-a-likes of yesterday's and today's top stars, or kick back with Old Blue Eyes and the gang during The Rat Pack, Live from Las Vegas.


If comedy is on the top of your list, stop out to see the Yakov Smirnoff Show. Hit the courts with basketball comedian, Dave 'Travelin' Davlin, during Bounce - An American Basketball Show, or see Tom Mullica's tribute to Red Skelton. You can also skip the humor and head straight to amazement with Kirby VanBurch 'The Prince of Magic, or the Acrobats of China shows.

Family Fun

Branson has much in store for the family with younger children. Above and beyond mainstays like Silver Dollar City, the vacation oasis offers magic, mayhem and more. Take a walk through the tantalizing World's Largest Toy Museum. Show the small fry gadgets from your youth, and before. Visit the Butterfly Place, where over 50 species flutter from all around the world, then settle in for the Gregory Popovich Comedy Pet Theatre, one of the most hilarious acts in town!


The possibilities for dining are endless, as well. Dolly Parton's Stampede Dinner & Show brings North vs. South rivalries to a head during a delicious four-course home-style meal. Indulge in a traditional woodman's camp dinner as lumberjacks take to their time-honored championships for patrons of the Tall Timber Lumberjack Show.

From history to music to comedy and more, Branson offers visitors an amazing array of shows, attractions and fun. There's something for everyone in the Missouri town with venues that rival those of the busiest cities on Earth.

Legends in Concert
This show was great, all of the performers were wonderful. Michael jackson was actually a good dancer, i honestly didn't expect that caliber. The only thing i would change is that i wouldn't put patsy cline right after michael jackson it was just to drastic of a change. But overall this was a great show!

Yakov Smirnoff Show
Saw yakov - and was actually on stage volunteering for a segment in the second half of the show - i learned quickly that it wasn't just a country music show but so much more--the comedy outweighs any show in branson, the patriotism far exceeds any other show and gives you a renewed sense of patriotism, and he breaks down the importance of laughter and how laughter helps to show love, heal, and bring everyone together. I felt like i had attended some kind of motivational seminar that happened to be extremely funny and entertaining. He's got it figured out!

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 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!
