Memorial Day weekend is no doubt the gateway to summer. There is just something about fun in the sun and Branson attractions that make a three day weekend oh-so-sweet! Don't miss the best places (and deals) to check out when you visit Branson this holiday weekend!
First stop- College of the Ozarks!
Less than five miles south of Branson, be sure to stop by this impressively unique and patriotic campus! Patriots Park at College of the Ozarks is home to many war memorials such as the Korean War Memorial, The Missouri Vietnam Veterans Memorial, the Lest We Forget Memorial and the Global War on Terrorism Memorial. While you're visiting campus, be sure to take a stroll through Veterans Memorial Museum, as well.
Next, take in a classic Branson show!
A few of our favorite shows include Raiding the Country Vault at the Americana Theatre, Clay Cooper's Country Express, Samson at Sight & Sound Theatres and Dolly Parton's Stampede! For discounted show tickets, be sure to download the Branson Saver App!
And if you love Bluegrass + BBQ..
No trip to Branson is complete without a visit to Silver Dollar City! This Branson attraction needs to be on everyone's hit list this holiday weekend. World winning BBQ and sweet bluegrass music will leave your heart happy, but wild rides such as Outlaw Run and Time Traveler will fill your adventurous soul!
Make time to bask in the sun at local lakes!
There is no doubt, some of Branson's best views can be seen best from the lake. If you're looking to rent a boat, head out to Table Rock Lake. If you're looking to kayak or canoe, ski or just take a ride on a big yacht, hit up Main Street Marina on Lake Taneycomo, located right next to the Branson Landing!
Speaking of the Landing..
Memorial Day weekend isn't only for lake lovers! Shop till you drop at The Branson Landing on Saturday, and when you're ready to rest, head over to the fountains for a free concert featuring The Rosy Hips and Members Only!
Oh, and more shopping!
Also on Saturday, be sure to check out The Memorial Day Block Party and Food Trucks at Tanger Outlets! You'll swoon over outlet savings from stores such as Michael Kors, Coach, Nike and more!
End the weekend with a BOOM!
