Branson Scenic Railway
Take your attendees on a scenic ride back in time on a vintage train. The Branson Scenic Railway covers 40 miles of beautiful Ozarks forest into Northern Arkansas and back. All of the train cars were built in the 1930s through the 1950s and three of them are glass-domed, offering a panoramic view of the countryside. The train embarks just outside the Convention Center in Historic Downtown Branson and offers a unique setting for breakout meetings, parties or gatherings. For a sophisticated evening event, try the dinner train in Grande Style featuring linen tablecloths, china, sterling and delicious food. A typical dinner train ride takes two hours and 15 minutes.
Dolly Parton's Stampede

With only 500 people, the Dolly Parton's Stampede will add a dinner show just for your group and can accommodate groups up to 1,100 people. If you’re looking for a space to rent outside of the show, the Carriage Room is a favorite. Meeting space is also free to large groups who attend the Dolly Parton's Stampede dinner attraction.

Seating up to 49 passengers, the Spirit of America offers a variety of day and sunset cruises and departs from the State Park Marina. Once aboard, attendees can help the crew operate the vessel or sit back and enjoy the ride. Daily excursions depart at noon, 2 pm and sundown for a special Sunset Celebration cruise.
Branson Convention Center
In historic downtown, the architecturally stunning 220,000 sq. ft. Branson Convention Center is connected to the 294-room Hilton Convention Center hotel which provides a seamless flow for attendees where they can move from their well-appointed guestroom to a modern meeting facility without ever leaving the building. Located directly across the street is the 242-room Hilton Promenade situated on the Branson Landing, a $435 million shopping, dining and nightlife development on Lake Taneycomo. The Branson Landing offers many options for meeting planners to host events off site from the Convention Center, without having to consider additional transportation costs as it is only steps away. From a pulse-quickening ride on the Branson Jet Boat to dinner and bowling at Andy B’s Bowl Social, plenty of options for off-agenda fun abound.
