Branson is a Shopper’s Paradise

No matter what your Branson vacation includes, from live shows and fine dining to camping and outdoor adventure, you’re sure to spend a little time enjoying a traveler’s favorite past time: Shopping.

Fortunately, shopping in Branson is a breeze – and full of variety – thanks to hundreds of retailers who delight in making your vacation experience complete.

Stroll along Lake Taneycomo as you explore the shops of Branson Landing, where Belk department store offers brands from Liz Claiborne to Nike. And don’t’ miss the Landing’s variety of niche shops like Cardinals Clubhouse and its great selection of St. Louis Cardinals gear and apparel (ladies, it’s also an excellent place to “lose” the guys for a while).

Another popular stop on Branson Landing is Branson Quilts, where an amazing selection awaits those looking for a new bedspread, an item for interior décor, or a gift to help keep a loved one snuggly when Missouri’s winter chill sets in.

A short stroll from Branson Landing leads to some of downtown Branson’s famous shopping destinations. Perhaps most notable among the bunch is Dick’s Old Time 5 & 10, which quite honestly defies description. If the kid in you remains alive and well … just go to Dick’s. You won’t be sorry.

If you’re a crafty person – not in the tricky sort of way, but in the makes-cute-gifts kind of way ­– check out Plum Bazaar. Just a stone’s throw from Dick’s, Plum Bazaar has beads and supplies to help you create unique gifts, plus already-made jewelry and other items. Classes in making jewelry also are available; call 417-337-7586 for details.

Speaking of crafts, they’re the focal point of retailers at Branson Craft Mall, which features some 200 booths full of different kinds of wares, from stained glass to pottery to Christmas décor. At Branson Craft Mall, don’t miss the opportunity to sample (or chow down on) sweets from Branson Fudge Company or grab a sandwich from the Pickin’ Porch Deli – you need your strength for more shopping!

A trip to the Tanger Outlets is a great way to cap your Branson shopping spree. Located just off the famous Highway 76 Branson Strip, Tanger offers tons of choices, whether you’re interested in something from Coach or Christopher and Banks, Izod or Under Armour, or the Disney Store or Toys R Us Express, Tanger Outlets has you covered.
