Going to Branson Missouri

and we have never been there before. I found a great deal on a condo so we thought..why not check it out. I have two boys ages 15 and 8 and want them to have a good time. Any tips? We are going out there in July. Thanks!

  • -Avoid breakfast buffets especially at Peppercorn's and I believe the other one is Penelope's.
    -The Magnificent Seven Variety Show at the White House Theater is great for kids
    -There is a Build A Bear Workshop down at Branson Landing which is always great for kids and there's a similar store called Ride Makerz for the boys (meaning any car crazed husbands).
    -If you are going to take the kids on the Ducks I would recommend taking them on the new Branson Landing tour of Lake Taneycomo.
    -For free entertainment check out the Fish Hatchery just off Table Rock Dam. It's free entry and our kids always love checking out and feeding the growing trout. You can usually catch a few fly fisherman just outside of the hatchery. It's always neat to watch.
    -When you are at the butterfly palace check out the mirror maze. The most fun you can have.

  • Visit their official site: http://www.branson.com/  It has schedules, ticket discounts, all sorts of stuff.  DH has been there several times with his family (we live up north in Hannibal) and he says that Silver Dollar City is a good place for family things.

  • Lambert's Cafe - Home of the Throwed Rolls - good country cooking type food and they throw rolls at you. It's not in Branson, but is close by.
