Beautiful Scenery, Exciting Entertainment

In America's heartland, Branson, Missouri, is one of the nation's favorite vacation destinations. Read on to explore some of the things to do here and why this small mountain town draws millions of visitors every year.

Scenic Beauty

The first thing you notice when you arrive in the Branson area is the breathtaking beauty of the hills, mountains and lakes of the Ozarks. Situated at the crossroads of the Midwest, the South and the West, the Branson area's mountains, lakes and streams is the most visited part of the Missouri Ozarks. Branson sits along the White River, which makes up three pristine lakes: Bull Shoals Lake, Lake Taneycomo and Table Rock Lake.

Outdoor Adventure

With so much natural beauty, you'll want to explore highways, lakes and trails. So whether you're wanting a leisurely fishing trip, Scuba diving or a horseback trail ride, the opportunities for outdoor adventure are everywhere you look. At more than 1,500 feet above sea level, the Shepherd of the Hills Inspiration Tower is the highest point in southwest Missouri and provides unmatched views for miles and miles. Oh, and did we mention that you can zipline from the tower?

Live Shows

Branson has been known for years as one of the best places in America to experience live Country, Bluegrass and roots music, but in recent years the live shows in Branson have diversified greatly. Now, you can find many other music genres like Rock 'n' Roll, show tunes and current pop, but there's also a variety of Broadway-style production shows, comedy, magic and more.


Branson is home to dozens of popular attractions, including museums, golf courses, boating and more. And you can't talk about Branson attractions without mentioning Silver Dollar City, which was recently named one of the Top 10 theme parks in the world.
