Branson Overview

Branson, Missouri is a truly hidden wonder. It’s nestled in the Ozark Mountains, boasting some of the most beautiful lakes imaginable. Ever since the first country music shows opened in the late 1950’s, the city has been known as the “live music capital of the world.” But that’s not the only feature that makes Branson a special place to visit; its family friendly atmosphere is at the top of the list, along with incredible fishing, unique shopping and great entertainment. In fact, Branson is the entertainment capital of the Midwest.

In Branson, you can find log cabins, cozy resorts and beautiful hotels for your stay. It's also a great place for people wanting to camp or take the RV out for a real adventure. If you fly into Branson, the Chamber of Commerce can arrange for a shuttle to pick you up. It is all part of Branson’s hospitality. And with construction of the new airport almost complete, low-cost fares will be available from major cities in the U.S.

If you are wondering why the city is called Branson, you’ll have to look back to 1882 when Rueben Branson opened the first general store and post office. That’s right; he named the city after himself. Shortly after, live shows began to appear and soon the city became a popular destination.

When visiting Branson, you’ll want to shop for items you won’t find anywhere else, like heirloom quality furniture, handcrafted specialty jewelry and crafts. You will also find major outlet stores where you can find merchandise at hugely discounted prices.

Many visitors come to Branson to fish. Lake Taneycombo is considered one of the best places for catching fresh rainbow and brown trout in the nation. You can also fish at Table Rock Lake and Bull Shoals Lake, all, first class fishing while near great attractions.

Dining in this Midwestern city is not simply dining, but a whole experience, one you won’t want to miss. How about dining at the Dolly Parton’s Dixie Stampede while you participate in a historic feud between North and South, all while savoring mouthwatering dishes? Or perhaps you would prefer to taste great Branson cooking while watching battling loggers? Everything is possible in Branson.

Some of the great attractions you’ll find in Branson include Silver Dollar City, one of the top theme parks in town, named number one in the world, by the International Association of Amusement Parks and Attractions. Celebration City offers the most amazing laser and fireworks show, leaving you wanting for more.

Branson is a great place for romance. The city’s breathtaking beauty serves as great backdrop for scenic and candle-light evening cruises. You may even charter a luxury yacht and enjoy breathtaking views of the Ozark Mountains and its wildlife.
