Planning to Vacation in Branson? How to Make It a Memorable One
If you are a first-time visitor to Branson, Missouri, you may be overwhelmed by the choices you have for lodging. People passing through or only staying for a night or two may do very well with a hotel or motel along the “strip,” but if you are planning to vacation in the area, you may want to give some thought to your accommodations. That is because there is simply so much to do and so many people doing it.
The range of Branson lodging options available to vacationers is adaptable to most budgets and needs. If you have any difficulty finding the perfect place to sit back and relax, give a call to one of the vacation professionals like Tom at bransonregal.com who can make the task seem effortless.
Highway 76, or “The Strip,” can become very congested almost any time of day or night, especially in the Summer. There are more than 50 theaters in Branson and more on the outskirts of the city. That means if you want to see a lot of shows but don’t want to spend a lot of time commuting, you will want to choose a cabin or condo or one of the vacation rentals on the West side of town so you have easy access to the traffic bypass routes. A good option is Stonebridge Resort which is only three miles from the Entertainment Strip, and is situated near all the traffic bypass access points.
Table Rock Lake
Shows range from bluegrass to gospel, from rock to Chinese acrobats…shows for every taste and age, even the kids. You can indulge yourself with the entertainment you like and with performers you know. If you are more interested in seeing the sights around the area, Table Rock Lake offers the fifth best freshwater fishing in the United States, and one of the few places you can fish for warm-water varieties on one side on the dam, and cold water fish on the other.
Dewey Short Visitor’s Center
The Lake also has parasailing and other water sports. The Dewey Short Visitor’s Center at Table Rock is free, and is a great way to familiarize yourself with Branson’s natural surroundings. There is a no-admission charge fish hatchery where you and your family can see how fish are raised and even experience the feeding frenzy as you drop food pellets into the “raceways.”
After a busy day of sightseeing and playing, you can relax in a rental home with all its convenient amenities without sacrificing your privacy. Best of all, you’ll have the whole place to yourselves.
