Ridden A Duck Lately?
Cool off on a ride in one of Branson’s amphibious vehicles. They still go out on Table Rock, but try the ride on Lake Taneycomo. They leave Branson Landing by Arvest Bank, go through the beautiful campus of College of the Ozarks and along Downing Street in Historic Downtown Hollister. You’ll pass Ye Olde English Inn, now owned by romance author Janet Dailey. Then splash into the lake and go past Branson Landing. BransonDucks.com. 877-887-8225.
A Thundering Herd
If you haven’t been to Dolly Parton’s Dixie Stampede Dinner Attraction this season, go Saturday when they have shows at 3, 5:30 and 8 p.m. One of the new numbers this year features a thundering herd of longhorn steers. The meal is a real treat. Did you know they now sell Dixie’s Original Soup Mix in the gift shop? DixieStampede.com. 800-520-5544.
