Things to Do in Branson for Seniors

Here's a look at six can't-miss opportunities for seniors to enjoy in Branson. 

Couple sitting at bar with cocktails.

You weren't exactly thrilled when those publications for "seniors" started showing up in your mailbox. Still, you have to admit, there's something special about that time in life when you're no longer "working for the weekend" but instead spending your days fawning over the grandkids. That being said, every now and then it's nice to get away, just the two of you, to reflect on life's little blessings and spend time together. So the next time you're not running to ball games or recitals or providing free daycare, take a trip to Branson where there’s no age limit on fun. 


Winery Tours and Tastings

Enjoy a glass of wine or two of Missouri-made wine at one of Branson's many wineries, which you can see here. After you've found your favorite, take a few bottles home to enjoy and relive your vacation experience all over again.

Explore the city

Smell the delicious baked pastries at Silver Dollar City.

Silver Dollar City, that is. Roller coasters and water rides may not be your cup of tea anymore, but still there's plenty to see, do and, perhaps most importantly, eat at Silver Dollar City. Enjoy demonstrations by working craftsmen, check out a live performance, and ignore your diet for a day and stop by Eva and Delilah's Bakery for a huge cinnamon roll or chocolate chip cookie. Yes, it's worth it.


Relax and rejuvenate

Even if the good ol' "8 to 5" days are over, you may still find it difficult to unwind completely. There's work to do at home, family obligations and friends to keep up with. It's exhausting. Take a minute - maybe 60 or 90 of them - to relax with a visit to one of Branson's spas. Whether you go for a full body massage or simply a quick manicure or pedicure, it's fine to let someone pamper you for a change.

During your getaway, you'll find excellent lodging options to complete your Branson experience.
