Could someone tell me about Silver Dollar City in Branson,Missouri?
I go there almost every week! It's an awesome theme park. Ther are rides for every age. There are many roller coasters, water rides, gentle rides, etc. I reccomend it for famalies. You can buy a full day pass.
Has anyone been to the bodies exhibit in Branson Missouri?
Are you talking about the exhibit with real human bodies on display? If so, I went to the same thing but in another city and I loved it. There are soo many cool things to see, and the talk about the human body in a lot of different ways. It is definitely worth going to, it's not crappy at all.
You might try the Thousand Hills Golf Resort. A few blocks off the strip with lots of amenities.
A different option - a very beautiful one - a few miles south of town, is the Big Cedar Lodge. www.big-cedar.com
Another resort is Chateau on the Lake: Surrounded by the stunning Ozark Mountains, the Chateau is located at the junction of Highways 265 and 165, near Table Rock Dam and the Showboat Branson Belle.

Better than hotels.com....Expedia.com is better.
I've been to Branson MANY times.
A good way to get CHEAP stay and show tickets is to sign up for a time-share sales presentation. Yeah, you gotta suffer through 2-hours of high-pressure sales tactics but hold your ground if your not interested and you'll still get your show tickets and cheap lodging.
If that's not your cup of tea...
Depending on where you want to go and do, EconoLodge Branson West is furthest from downtown Branson, but closer to Silver Dollar City. I paid less than $70/night...and it's not the greatest place either.
Howard Johnsons is close to downtown without being on the strip. It's high on a hill near the wax museum. I stayed there in early June a few years ago and got a room for less than $80/night and was VERY nice.
I heard Mountain Music Inn is nice too. My parents stay there a lot.
The cheapest place to stay would be to camp out (pop up camper or tent) on Table Rock Lake at Baxter campgrounds.
I grew up camping on the lake; as an adult, I stay in the hotels because I don't feel like hauling all my camping gear 4.5 hours just for two nights.
As for restaurants...you can't go wrong with Ruby Tuesdays and Cracker Barrel. Dockers is a terrible place. My husband and I got sick on Thanksgiving food there. We later heard from many locals the place was bad. I think they were closed for good the last time I was in Branson
Good luck and have fun.
What are some great local restaurants in Branson, Missouri?
It really depends on what type of food you are looking for. A good site, that has many personal critiques, is at the link attached. Based on my experience, it you have a choice of a show or a dinner/show, go for the show alone and pick a restaurant recommended by the web site reviewers for a ,separate, good meal.
Where is the best place to take a leak in Branson Missouri?
I have never ever ever been to Missouri, but I, for some odd reason, have looked online for you. Which you could have done, by the way.
There are two Branson Muffler and Radiator Service places in Branson. I'm not sure how much I can tell you without breaking the rules on here, but, sheesh, follow the link, click on "find businessess" then type in "radiator" or "bransom muffler" or something.
Have you been to Branson Missouri and what did you like best about it?
The sign that said "you are now leaving Branson." They're building it up all the time and with some good, cheap and some mediocre to bad music shows.
Still hilly. They've brought in some palm trees, like they're going to live up there. If you get bored, just run up U.S. 65 to Springfield. There you'll find the original Bass Pro Shop, Chinese restaurants on every corner and a couple of cheesy malls.
Not too bad if you excuse the accent which is like fingernails on a chalk board.
Whats a good time of year to visit Branson Missouri?
I have never been there, but did ask others too. I was told after labor day, the crowds are lower, (school started) and the wx is nice, And things go on sale b/c the tourist season is 'over'. I planned on going last fall, but got tix to LAS instead.
Me and some buddys are going to Branson Missouri for a bowling tournamnet?
Oh man... I know there are a few bars there, but I dont remember the names of them. Most of them are fairly low key - at least the ones I have been to I would term as low key. But I'm not sure about Irish Pubs. I havent seen one there.
We went to Branson with my entire family - LOTS of kids. The older kids and a few adults NEEDED to get out during the week. We joked that there had to be good bars there for the Dads that were forced to go to Silver Dollar City with their families.
What is generally the cheapest airport for flying to Branson, Missouri?
I looked on Mapquest, and both the Tulsa and Kansas City airports are more than 3 hours away (KC is actually closer to 4 hours away).
The route from the Tulsa Airport to Branson on Mapquest was primarily on interstate highways, and the route seemed to go a little out of the way (from Tulsa up to Springfield, then back down to Branson).
Before you rule out flying into Tulsa entirely, you might want to calculate the mileage and driving time on the following route... US 412 East from Tulsa to near Harrison, Arkansas, then US 65 North to Branson. It seems to be mostly a 2 lane road, so it may well be over 2.5 hours driving.
The upside of Tulsa and KC is that both airports have service on Southwest, which keeps airfares more competitive. But the Springfield Airport is served by American, Delta, United and Northwest, so there is a decent amount of competition there too.
How old do you have to be to rent a 1 bedroom/1 bathroom condo in branson missouri?
Not an expert on this, but I'm pretty sure it varies according to property management for that location. I recall renting a hotel room there while under 21/over 18, at least. I believe that possession of a credit card is a greater priority.
Instead of a credit card, you should be able to use a "check card" (Visa or MasterCard branded debit card), but keep in mind they will put a reserve charge equal to at least the full amount of your stay from the get go, perhaps more to cover expected incidentals, such as room service and PPV.
We are going to Branson Missouri at Christmas time. What is the weather like at that time of year?
It will be cold and the trees will be brown and dormant as will the grass. The wind will most likely be blowing and the air will be very dry. Your skin will itch and your lips will be chapped. Not much for a 3 year old to do since all the outdoor stuff will be closed.
What is the best thing for families to do in Branson, Missouri?
Don't listen to Haywood. Branson is a wonderful vacation area for families of all age groups. It's been a while since I have visited the area, but there are tons of vacation time shares there. You could probably get a deal from anyone of those (free lodging or reduced price lodging), but the only catch is you will have to do the tour and the presentation. Of course, they will try to do the "hard" sell on you as well.
Branson is located in the Ozark region of southwest Missouri. Silver Dollar is a fun place with tons of water rides, but given the age of your children, they might not get to ride on those rides. I can't remember if they had a special section for the toddler age group or not. I am sure they do. They have lots of vendors there that sell their hand made wares such as wrought iron goods and the confectionary store sells homemade salt water taffy. I think they even have people there who are making the taffy right on the premises. There are also shows in Branson by big time entertainers. You can take your kids on the Wacky Ducks. The Wacky Ducks are amphibious vehicles that were used during World War II. They can go on land and water. You get a tour of Branson and Table Rock Lake. Plus everyone on the ride gets a complimentary Wacky Quacker (its like a whistle that makes quacking sounds). It's fun going down the main drag in Branson and quacking at all of the tourist walking from shop to shop. The tourist get a big kick out of it as well as all of the passengers young and old.
I included some links in the sources area for your perusal. I am excited for you and your family. I know that Grandma and Grandpa along with the Grand Kids will absolutely love Branson and all the beauty of the surrounding area.
Haywood take a hike. If you can't contribute something positive, then don't contribute at all!
If you are not going to use it the is not worth keeping it, if it's worth keeping it for your kids would only depend on the situation of if your kids would use it/afford it or not.
If you want to sell it look for a mail box or a community bulletin board at your home resort, you can put a “For sale” sign. This will pressure the developer specially if they sell it for $20,000 USD and you offer it for $5,000. Sometimes on the fine print of some sale agreements says that the developer has the first right to buy if your place is ever sold. I have heard of developers paying the money (as long as is not too much) just to take the sign out.
To resale or rent a timeshare is a hard task, the basic rule is not to pay money up-front, don’t be another victim of a scam.
Unfortunately over 50% of people that really need to sell their timeshare falls for this resale scams where they charge money upfront and less than 10% of them use their only real option which is to post it or offer it trough free advertising options as much, and as many sites as they can (it is ok to pay a few dollars to post in a great place but no more that $20 to $30).
Timeshares do not have resale value and in most situations you would take a loss in what you paid for, as they resale for less than $2000 USD.

What's the best way to spend time in BRANSON, Missouri?
I have visited Branson several times and my favourite things have been to visit the Silver Dollar City Theme Park http://www.silverdollarcity.com/ and Dolly Parton's Dixie Stampede Dinner Show http://www.dixiestampede.com/branson.php
Does anyone know where to find Branson, Missouri coupons/ discounts for last week of this month?
I think you should come to the Lake of the Ozarks instead. We have a lot more options then Branson when it comes to attractions. We have less music show, but more fun!!!
You should visit the Lake of the Ozarks Missouri....
Conveniently located in the heart of Missouri, The Lake of the Ozarks is the Midwest's premier lake resort destination, offering world-class boating, golf, shopping and fishing, and a wide variety of lodging, restaurants, state parks, and other recreational activities to suit any budget and taste. Lake of the Ozarks vacations are defined by the Lake and its many waterfront accommodations, restaurants, and recreational and entertainment venues.
We have it all family fun and crazy night life.
Heading to Branson, Missouri in a few weeks. Do you know of any free activites in the area?
Go out to the dam and take a free tour. Also there's a wonderful visitors center. We enjoyed the Shepherd of the Hills Fish Hatchery. They have trout, breeding stock, over two feet long. It's amusing to watch them be fed. A truck drives between the tanks, spewing out food and the fish follow the truck to the end of the tank. Some even jump uot of the tank, following the truck. All this is close togeather where Lake Taneycomo meets Table Rock Lake of highway 165/265.
Drive up to Springfield and spend the day at Outdoor World. This is the original and very interesting. I'm not sure the museum is still free, they were enlarging it the last time I was there. Have lunch in Hemingways on the third floor, I believe. Ride the elevator up and enjoy the view.
Will a 130,000 mile tahoe make it from tx to branson missouri?
well, only you know your vehicle, but if it's serviced properly, has the oil changed, etc, then I don't see why it shouldn't be fine. 130,000 isn't that much for the newer cars- they are built to go a long time!
They do grow wild there. I see the orange ones every summer. Try looking near the river's edge in a few weeks, during bloom time.
You can also find trumpet vine down there, but be advised -- it is really hard to keep under control!
does anyone know a good website to rent a cabin in branson missouri?
If you're planning on visiting Silver Dollar City, I would recommend 'The Wilderness.' They have log cabins and a campground and are right next door to Silver Dollar City (they are actually part of Silver Dollar City property):
If you are going somewhere else or prefer to shop around, here is a listing of places to rent log cabins in Branson:

What are some places young ppl can hangout & have a goodtime in Branson Missouri?
Well I'm 19 and I enjoyed Silver Dollar City its a theme park, there is also another theme park , but I'm not sure what its called, and Dixie Stampede, they have amazing food and a good show, if you get there early you can see the horses. If you are Christan there is the sight and sound theatre it was really neat, and there is six, its six brothers who are basically a band without instruments they make sounds with their mouths that sound like instruments. I could just go on and on.
where is the best hotel/motel in/near Branson, Missouri?
Yes, don't stay in a hotel in Branson -- stay at a Branson vacation rental. You'll be in a great place, and save some money in the process. For example:
Note that you can choose from a Studio, to 1 bedroom, 3 bedroom, 4+ bedrooms, etc. Or you may have noticed that there's a golf course or two in Branson -- find a Branson house on the golf course. Or near the attractions, by the Branson Silver Dollar City, with jacuzzi's, hot tubs, screened porches, pools, pet-friendly, with WIFI, secluded, condos, etc. The list goes on and on.
Good luck, and I hope that helps.
Does it snow in Branson Missouri at Christmas time?
It snows in Branson, just not always at Christmas time. The year before last it did snow during the Christmas holiday, but the seasons are kinda off regarding the snow. Typically there is more snow during Jan/Feb than there is in Nov/Dec. It is almost November right now, and I wore a t-shirt today. The cold weather just hesitates a bit up here, but it is possible. YOu could probably go to weatherchannel.com and get a possible estimate for Branson during Christmas this year in comparisson to the previous years. Lots of luck, I hope your 4 year old gets to see snow, they do so enjoy it a bunch at that age
Does anyone know of a good/trusted place to board dogs in Branson Missouri?
Sorry, I don't know anything about that part of the country. You best search locally. Talk to Vets to see who they would recommend. Your local phone book may be of some help. Where have your friends left their dogs? Can you leave them with friends or family while you are gone? or have neighbors feed & walk while you are gone?
Are there any restaraunts in Branson,Missouri that we must go to?
Cantina Laredo, I can recommend the food and the service.
Very attentive from all the staff.
1001 Branson Landing Blvd, if you like authentic Mexican fare, you will love this place and it's suitable for children too.
I found a very informative review for you:
We usually go 2 times each year. You must see Branson Landing. It's a the far end of 76. White Water is up to you. Branson's not really "known" for that -it's just something that's there. If you're looking for similar fun, you'll find bumper boats & mini golf everywhere. Silver Dollar City is great. Check out McFarlin's restaurant in the IMAX building. Be sure to ask for the table that rises, but don't tell your friends! See an IMAX movie. If you are planning to see a show, check our Pierce Arrow. Stop at the diner in the Grand Village. The waiters sing to you. Very cool & good food. There's so much to do, just don't get overwhelmed when you go! (We're going on Monday!)
