For a uniquely Ozarks experience, you won't mind taking a little side trip during your Branson, Missouri vacation to go to Apple Butter Makin' Days in Mount Vernon, Missouri.
Only about an hour from Branson, Mount Vernon is just off of Interstate 44 and hosts this event every year where the traditional method of apple butter making is brought back to life. The secret recipe is put together the day before the festival in huge copper kettles over open fires and stirred to perfection.
Of course, you'll be able to sample and purchase apple butter, but there is plenty of other food and things to do for the whole family from a bubble gum blowing contest and pie-eating contest to a pet parade.
Since 1999, Branson Shows has provided a one-stop tool for vacation planning. Customers can browse through and book a variety of shows, attractions, and activities and combine it with the lodging of their choice to create a custom vacation package in one convenient online location...
