Three Ways to Play in Branson Memorial Day Weekend

School is out for summer. The office is closed for an extra day. The smell of fresh cut grass is in the air. It all must mean one thing: it’s time for Memorial Day Weekend! Plan your escape to Branson to enjoy family time, the great outdoors and even an entertaining attraction or two. Need some vacation ideas for inspiration? Read on to find three ways to play in Branson Memorial Day Weekend.

Family Fun in Branson

Wildfire at Silver Dollar City

Branson is known for its family-friendly environment. The area not only has a polite Midwestern attitude, it offers a multitude of ways for families to have fun. And make memories! Kids of all ages can play at The Track, a fun center with arcade games, bumper boats, bumper cars, miniature golf courses and go-karts. Bigger kids will really love the thrill of the Xtreme Racing Center, a high-speed go-kart racing center where the engines run even faster.

Of course, a visit to Branson isn’t complete without a day spent at Silver Dollar City. The 1880s-themed park has over 40 thrilling rides and attractions, as well free live shows, demonstrating craftsmen and even a cave you can explore.  With the weather warming up, a tropical trip to White Water might be in order. Lounge on the Aloha River or take the plunge on the daredevil Kapau Plummet. If you’re planning on visiting both Branson theme parks, check out these money-saving Silver Dollar vacation packages.

Greet the Great Outdoors

Table Rock Lake

Rolling mountains and vast lakes make the outdoor scene in Branson a veritable playground. Branson Memorial Day Weekend is an excellent time of year to take to the lakes – especially Table Rock Lake. Rent a boat at State Park Marina or Long Creek Marina to cruise around this pristine oasis, or hop on a rented jet-ski for a water-filled adventure. Just want to kick back and relax? At Moonshine Beach put your toes in the sand, soak in the sun and go for a swim. Nearby nature trails like the Table Rock Lakeshore Trails and Lakeside Wilderness Trails easily fit in to the weekend too.

Spotlight on Entertainment

The Haygoods

It’s no secret Branson has a lot of shows – over 100 in fact. Some are absolutely can’t miss and make for an entertaining getaway. Among them are Dixie Stampede, a friendly rivalry show with horses, singing, lively competition and a four-course feast; Moses, a larger-than-life stage version of the biblical story; and Prince Ivan, a brand-new, fresh, fun and all-original band with a unique Top 40 sound. Other favorites like the Haygoods, SIX, and The Presleys Jubilee are taking the stage too, and many of these shows feature discounts on tickets. Savings and a show? You can’t beat that!
