History of Tourism in Branson

1894 - Marvel Cave Opens to Tourists

Marvel Cave was first discovered around 1500 AD by the Osage Indians. In 1541, it was explored by the Spanish, who were looking for the fountain of youth (but they didn’t find it!), and in 1869 by St. Louis miners looking for lead ore, and then marble (but they didn’t find them either!).

Bowling in Branson

Andy B’s Bowl Social 

Head to Andy B’s at the Branson Landing for an awesome boutique bowling experience. Surrounded by 50-foot LED screens featuring sports and entertainment, each lane accommodates up to eight bowlers and offers lounge-style seating with nearby food and beverage service. And by the way, this isn’t your typical bowling alley food; Andy B’s features a modern-America menu, craft cocktails, local and regional drafts and plenty of non-alcoholic drinks as well.
