AAA has announced the Best of the Midwest, with Branson chosen as the Best Small City for a Weekend Getaway. Readers of AAA share their picks for the best places to visit, stay, dine and have fun in the Midwest. Then, the votes are tallied and recommendations are given on the selections with the most votes. It’s no surprise Branson, Missouri won the Best Small City for a Weekend Getaway as the small but entertainment filled Ozark hamlet offers plenty for visitors to see and do.
The unique mix of things to do in Branson is certainly one of the top reasons it was chosen by AAA readers at the Best of the Midwest. Virtually every type of entertainment or amusement can be found in Branson. Dinner shows like the Dixie Stampede appeal to families while shows like Liverpool Legends and Oh What a Night lure in Baby Boomers. Don’t worry – there’s still plenty of country music shows to enjoy too. Some of the best include The Presleys, Pierce Arrow and The Duttons. Looking for a variety show? Try out SIX and The Price is Right Live. Of course, there are also shopping, golf lakes, rivers, theme parks and other family amusements. You can spend a day or two at Silver Dollar City enjoying one of their many festivals and attractions. Then, enjoy the waterfront entertainment and dining available at the downtown Branson Landing.
