By day, you and your family will enjoy miles of fun parks, fudge shops, eateries, wax museums, mini-golf courses and more. By night, you’ll cruise the the neon-lit Branson Strip (also called 76 Country Boulevard), deciding which live magic, country music or comedy show to attend among the 50 glittering live theatre and music halls that Branson is known for.
Just minutes outside Branson, discover spectacular Ozark wilderness—Missouri’s rugged backyard and renowned scenic gem. Lace up your trail shoes to trek through raw forest to scale Missouri’s highest peak, Taum Sauk Mountain, and gaze up at one of the state’s tallest waterfalls, Mina Sauk Falls. Or, hop onto the Ozark Trail, which winds through the Ozarks for 400 miles, passing abandoned villages and cabins, crystal-clear streams, and sheer bluffs.
If you prefer the fun that splashes, the Ozark National Scenic Riverways offer 130+ miles of inner-tubing and canoeing—some of the more popular activities from both locals and visitors alike.
