Branson Landing Has Something for Everyone

One of Branson’s most-visited attractions is Branson Landing, a center for shopping, dining and entertainment located between Lake Taneycomo and historic downtown Branson.

Branson Landing appeals to visitors of all ages, offering more than 100 storefronts for shopping, restaurants and accommodations. Easily walkable, Branson Landing is less than a mile long with a central, open-air promenade and a lakeside boardwalk. The mall is capped on the north end by the Belk department store and by a landmark Bass Pro Shops store on the south end.

Attractions

Branson Landing Fountain Show at Night, Branson, MO

The crown jewel of Branson Landing is its town square — an open plaza at the center of the mall, featuring a $7.5 million Fountain Show with lights, fire, water and music. Visitors can sit and watch the choreographed display of 120-foot fountain geysers and fire columns interplay with lights and your favorite musical hits. 

Aboard the new Parakeet Pete’s Steampunk Balloon, visitors take in breathtaking views of historic downtown Branson and Lake Taneycomo. The 188-foot hot air balloon is encased in an open steel tower for stability. When the balloon reaches the top of the structure, its basket slowly turns 360 degrees to give riders panoramic views. Visitors of all ages can ride in the balloon, which is said to be the only one of its kind in North America. Don’t miss Parakeet Pete’s Waterfront Zipline at the south end of Branson Landing for more adventures.

Shopping

Of course, Branson Landing offers more than outside fun. It’s a shopping magnet with more than 60 stores. From jewelry, gifts and apparel, to housewares, sports-fan favorites and bass boats, you can find something for everyone at Branson Landing. Shoppers can find name brands at their favorite retail chains such as Belk, Bass Pro Shops, Dressbarn, Chico’s, Christopher & Banks and Famous Footwear, to name a few. There are boutiques and specialty shops, too. Don’t miss locally owned favorites like Branson Quilts, Dove Olive Oil and Gifts of Distinction.
