Year-Round Outdoor Activities

With mild temperatures during the winter, it’s also possible to enjoy Branson’s outdoors year-round. More than 200 miles of hiking and biking trails lead to spectacular views of the Ozark Mountains and championship golf courses are a draw for many who love the sport. Branson also boasts some of the best winter trout fishing around at our three pristine lakes. In fact, your chances of catching a big brown or rainbow trout at Lake Taneycomo are best during the colder months of the year.
