Visit Branson Missouri

Our friends, the McCaslands, invited us to spend one spring break at Branson Missouri. Excem is my co-teacher. She and I are both kindergarten teachers in the school where am working. Like us, the McCaslands are also from Houston, but they went ahead of us because they were visiting some relatives prior to meeting us. Doods and I, and four other co-teachers drove to Branson and just met with Excem and Scott McCasland who have already gone ahead. The McCaslands regaled of their pleasant stay at Hilton Branson Convention Center Hotel. They liked the ambiance, the cleanliness, the friendly people and the efficiency of the service. The place is reasonably priced and offers a huge choice of amenities to enjoy! It has cool packages that can work well for both big and small party.

We had five days to explore Branson, and we made sure that we use up our time wisely. We checked online to see what are the best tourist attraction in Branson, Missouri.

This Titanic museum in Branson is not like its traveling counterparts. It is a two-story building. This replica is a half-scale to its original size. It is huge, towering at 100 feet above Country Highway 76, and holds 400 rare artifacts in twenty galleries. The building is anchored on water to give it the Titanic-at-sea effect. Even if you missed Titanic's maiden voyage, you can still discover her through this amazing museum in Branson.

Ride the Duck is an awesome QUACK-tastic adventure on land and water aboard an amphibious vehicle, a WWII replica DUKW. The tour combines music with historical accounts. The passengers also get a chance to drive the duck. Tour the Ozarks then cruise the lake for an exciting splashdown adventure!

Table Rock Lake is a man made reservoir, impounded by Table Rock Dam. It is such a beautiful sight. There are several commercial marinas along the lake. Downstream from the Dam, The Missouri Department of Natural Resources operates a fish hatchery, which is used to stock trout in Lake Tnaycomo. It was my first time to see a fish hatcher. Interesting. There were so many people fishing that day, despite the shill in the air.

We had a pleasant time at Branson. Like most places, five days is not enough to see it all. We will definitely be back. Especially now that my sister and her family have moved here in America from the Philippines. We checked out Hilton Promenade at Branson Landing and it is just the right place for a big group like us. They have spacious rooms and the place is at the heart of Historic Downtown. Branson, we shall return!

  11. I have never been to Branson, but have heard good things about it. They offer the duck tours in Boston as well. They are a big hit in warm weather.
