Hughes Brother's Show Branson ReviewWhen you’re booking your next family vacation you have to find the perfect place to visit for everyone. A place that has outdoor activities, that will keep kids entertained, that you can trust will keep everyone happy. You may be wondering if a place like this actually exists. And you will be happy to know – it actually does! We spent a few days in Branson, Missouri last month and had such a great time we want you to experience it as well. We’re sharing our favorite reasons to take your family there, as well as giving away show tickets and hotel stays to two of our readers! You just have to get you and your family there and have a great time!

Shows That Will Keep You Entertained!

Hughes Brother's Show Branson Review

Branson is known for the shows that built the city and that tradition continues to this day. With hundreds of shows happening daily you can easily find a few shows to watch each and every day. At the holidays season, most of the shows offer five show times. You can spend your day show hopping. With the majority of the shows being variety shows you can almost guarantee that you will like each and every one.

Many of the shows in Branson are run completely as family business and completely run in house. Purchase your show tickets directly from the theater or their websites to support them!

Our show recommendations: Hughes Music Show, Clay Cooper Country Express, Dolly Parton’s Stampede, Baldknobbers

Patriotism and Respect for Our Military 

Dolly Parton's Stampede Branson Review

Following along the lines of family values, Branson is steeped in Patriotism and pride in our country. Every show will have a moment that thanks our active military, service men and women and veterans. Every show does this a bit differently but you can expect to take that moment at every show.

Outdoor Activities to Burn off Steam

Branson Tracks and Ferris Wheel

Putt Putt, Bumper Cars and more! If the weather is nice, get outside and visit the Branson Tracks. Not only will you get them to burn off steam but you’ll laugh the day away. There is a something for everyone and you may find your competitive side coming out as you race around the tracks.

Theme Parks With Amazing Roller Coasters

Silver Dollar City Missouri Review Branson

Who doesn’t love theme parks? We fell in love with Silver Dollar City a theme park based around 1880’s Ozark life. But don’t think it’s all quaint and old fashioned. They have record breaking roller coasters like the Time Traveler that will whip you through time while spinning you around and upside down. The park is completely family friendly, is full of fun rides and treats that you’ll be craving for weeks after.

Hotels with Charm and Personality

Stone Castle Hotel Branson Review

Not all hotels are the same, and really we know they’re usually secondary when you are traveling. But we found that hotels with personality will keep you coming back for more! Stone Castle Hotel and Conference Center is a budget hotel that doesn’t feel like one. With themed Jacuzzi rooms that your family will love staying at. With two pools, a game room and breakfast included in your stay. Even if you’re only sleeping there, isn’t it more fun to be in a themed room anyhow?

Amazing Food Options – Even with Allergies and Special Diets

Florentina's Branson Review

You can find any type of food you want when your are in Branson. From country cooking, Italian, pizza and more. Want to try something delicious? The Italian Nachoes at Florentina’s gets rave reviews! If you have a food allergy don’t worry, the restaurant staff knows what to do. We explored Branson and enjoyed meals without getting sick the whole time.

Our restaurant recommendations: Fall Creek Steakhouse, Florentina’s Ristorante Italiano, Dinner at Dolly Parton’s Stampede, Cici’s Pizza, MacFairlan’s

Arcades to Keep Your Family Busy

Cici's Pizza Branson Review

Brush off your gaming skills and hop into the arcade! You can play different games in different arcades like the Branson Track, at the game room at the Stone Castle Hotel and the Million Dollar Game Room at the World’s Largest Cici’s Pizza. Load up your game card and play a few games, you don’t know what you will win! We highly recommend the claw machines  – we did great at those!

Amazing Views and Sights

Branson Ferris Wheel Review

Hop on the Branson Ferris Wheel and see the whole city. The Ferris Wheel was brought to the city in 2016 from Chicago and from the top you can see everything in the area. At night the Ferris Wheel lights up in a beautiful LED show. Ride with your friends, your family or significant other and enjoy breathtaking views along the way.

History and Learning Opportunities

Titanic Museum Branson Review

Our family trips always included trips to a museum or two. In Branson there are a lot of education opportunities but one amazing one – the Titanic Museum. Filled with actual artifacts, stories of survivors and the victims and amazing employees who have a passion for their job. The Titanic fascinates us all over a century later and this is a great place to learn more about the events of that fateful night and those who lived through it.
