One of these days, I'd love to go on a road trip to Branson, Missouri. What a wonderful summer adventure we could have there. Branson, Missouri, is just about 40 miles South of Springfield and right in the Ozark Mountains. There, you will find breathtaking views, and lots of opportunities for family fun.
I think I would especially enjoy a visit the Silver Dollar City amusement park. It reminds me of Knott's Berry Farm. I have some great memories of visiting there as a child and I think my children would enjoy the park very much. I also wouldn't mind going to the Titanic museum. The history is my cup of tea!
Branson offers many ongoing shows and events just perfect for your enjoyment this summer. There is a Family Fishing Weekend, National KidsFest, The Souled Out Band Concert, and so much more. You can visit http://www.explorebranson.com for more information on those events and see what else you might like while you're in the area.
If you need a place to stay while in Branson, be sure to check out the Hiltons of Branson, with the Hilton Promenade at Branson Landing and the Hilton Branson Convention Center Hotel. With the Branson Best Value Vacation Package, you get your third night free and it includes deluxe accommodations at either of these locations. Plus, two adult and two children's tickets to the Legends of Kung Fu show at the White House Theater, AND two adult and two children's two-day passes to Silver Dollar City. That's not all either! You also get a $25 gift card to go shopping with, and a $25 food credit for the Level 2 Steakhouse. If you're headed to Branson this summer, it's definitely something you might want to look into.
