While summer time in Branson is ideal for outdoor adventures with the family, fall season in the city has a more relaxed and cozy ambience–perfect for a romantic getaway. Couples, including parents who want some time off alone together, will also revel in the colorful foliage of the Ozarks, as the trees turn into varying hues of red, orange and yellow.
Situated within the Missouri Ozarks, Branson is a popular travel destination for families, friends, and couples, with attractions that range from nature-inspired tours to dynamic theme rides. As the peak summer time has passed, tourists may experience a slower pace in the months of September and October. With fewer crowds and less traffic, you and your partner may tour the city better while relaxing in one of the exquisite cabins in Branson, MO.
Attractions to Visit This Fall
For couples who love nature and history, the Shepherd of the Hills Homestead is the perfect attraction. This historic landmark has been converted into an entertainment park known for its live theatrical productions of Shepherd of the Hills, and for nature-inspired activities. Delight in a bird’s eye view of Branson from the top of Inspiration Tower, and experience the old-fashioned country life through horseback rides and trail explorations.
Meanwhile, a more adventurous but still Mother Earth friendly experience is offered at Branson’s Zip Line and Canopy Tours. Besides zipping through the top of Wolfe Mountain, couples can also get the thrill of their lives with the 100 ft. vertical freefall experience known as Free Fall Xpress, then educate themselves about the wildlife in the Ozarks through a photo safari.
Silver Dollar City, right across the highway from Stonebridge Resort, is Branson’s most popular attraction and one of the greatest theme parks in the United States. Try its two large roller coasters, get a taste of the Ozark Mountain cuisine in any of the open-air restaurants and booths lining the streets of Silver Dollar City, or attend innovative demonstrations of various craftsmen and artisans. In the fall, the park is not so crowded with families so you can discover that Silver Dollar City has much more to offer couples than their famous park rides.
Branson is one of the few cities in Missouri that pride themselves with their remarkable theatrical shows throughout the year. Since venues are less crowded in autumn, you and your partner can watch the shows in the best seats. End-of-season shows are also deemed to be better because the casts’ performance have become even more polished than earlier in the year.
As for the place to stay, nothing beats those charming cabins tucked away in the woods when you’re in Branson. Make sure you get the best accommodations by booking with companies like Branson Regal, who have long been providing vacation rentals and other services to visitors in the area.
