Trail Of Lights

One of Branson's most treasured holiday traditions will be back again this Christmas. The Trail of Lights at The Shepherd of the Hills features a two-and-a-half-mile drive filled with dozens of Christmas light displays that capture that the attention of all that drive past.

The trail winds through the historic Shepherd of the Hills homestead and is opened Nov. 2 through Dec. 31, 2020 from dusk to 10:00 pm Sundays through Thursdays, and dusk to 11 pm Fridays and Saturdays. 

For an even more original experience this Christmas, enjoy a horse-drawn carriage experience through the Trail of Lights! Shires for Hire is partnering with Shepherd of the Hills this holiday season with the goal of making Christmas memories to last a lifetime.

Let There Be Lights!


A unique Christmas display will be illuminating Branson again this Christmas. Promised Land Zoo's Let There Be Lights! is a two-mile drive-thru Christmas display filled with LED lights and views of animals in the zoo.

You'll also see a Christmas village with a living nativity scene and Santa with his real reindeer team. You can even venture onto Santa's Safari, a VIP guided tram tour through the lights, completing your journey with a "s-Elfie" with Santa's helpers and a snack of cookies and hot chocolate.

Let There Be Lights! opens from dusk to 11 p.m. daily starting Nov. 1 and will run through Dec. 31, 2020.
