Branson, Missouri has been named one of America’s Best Places for Holiday Lights by Yahoo. Branson was included on the list with destinations such as New York, Chicago an Orlando. Specifically, Yahoo referred to three major lighting displays in the area that really make the holidays sparkle in the Ozarks.
The three best places to see holiday light displays in Branson include:
Silver Dollar City: Over four million twinkling lights bring this 1880s-styled theme park to life during its Old Time Christmas Festival. Plus, a five-story special effects Christmas tree sparkles with over a million lights and the Holiday Light Parade shines twice nightly throughout the park.
Shepherd of the Hills Trail of Lights: Located on the 160-acre Shepherd of the Hills Historic Homestead, this drive-through light display features a two and a half mile trail winding its way through the natural scenery of Branson.
Branson Area Festival of Lights: Visitors will find more than 175 light displays along this one-mile drive through display. Conveniently located right off the famous Branson Strip, the Festival of Lights is a tradition for locals and vacationers.
