Are you looking for the perfect location for your next vacation with your family? Consider staying in a cabin in Branson, Missouri, where you'll be able to fill your days with lake fun, bright lights, and lots and lots of laughter.
There are three lakes in the Branson area: Table Rock, Taneycomo, and Bull Shoals. These lakes are all great places for you to go boating, fishing, or swimming.
Table Rock Lake is in the west area of Branson and was formed by a dam that was put in White River. It is an good place to fish, especially for largemouth, smallmouth, Kentucky spotted bass, catfish, bass, and many other delicious fish. If you time your vacation just right, you could participate in one of the many fishing tournaments that are hosted every year on the lake. After a long day of fishing or boating, be sure to check out the numerous lakeside restaurants along the shore that cater especially to boaters on the lake.
Lake Taneycomo is a popular fishing destination for those who specialize in trout fishing. The lake is stocked with around 750,000 rainbow and brown trout every year, so it's always chock-full of trout for you to catch. If you're not big on fishing, you can still have a lot of fun on Lake Taneycomo thanks to its many marinas and outfitters that provide canoe, kayak, and pontoon rentals. Jump off your boat and then finish off your day with a walk and dinner at the lighted boardwalk in nearby downtown Branson.
Bull Shoals Lake isn't as developed as Table Rock Lake or Lake Taneycomo, but its steep bluffs and rock ledges are sights to behold. Scuba diving and swimmers will love this lake, as well as those who love to fish bass.
When it gets dark outside, take your family to the alluring Branson Strip, which is also known as Country 76. It is filled with many glittering theaters and music shows that will entertain your and your family's eyes with bright, flashing lights and exciting neon signs. Consider the strip as a family friendly version of Las Vegas and just walk down the street looking at all the lights.
Along with over 100 theaters that put on music and comedy shows every night, the Branson Strip is packed full with entertainment for every person in your family. Amusement parks, restaurants, museums, and shopping areas are all available within walking distance on the strip. After a long night of walking up and down the light-filled strip, you'll have a great night sleep at your cabin in Branson!
Although Branson is very well-known for its music shows, don't overlook the comedy shows that are available in the city when you stay in a cabin in Branson. Here is just a little sampling of the comedy shows in Branson.
If you have sports fans in your family, grab tickets to Bounce - An American Basketball Show. It will remind you of the Harlem Globetrotters, but with only one man! Dave "Travelin" Davlin can handle a basketball, but he's also witty, hilarious, and will entertain you and your family throughout the whole show.
For a show that includes a bit of everything, from music to skits, your family will love the Comedy Jamboree. The show includes a stand-up comedy routine from Branson's Comedian of the Year Jamie Haage, hysterical skits, fun songs, and lots of wit. You'll be laughing all night and even after the show is over.
Stay in a cabin at Branson and enjoy everything that the city has to offer you and your family!
