Live Entertainment Capital of the World
Nestled in Missouri's beautiful Ozark Mountains lies one of the country's most attractive vacation towns for year-round family entertainment. Although only home to a small local population, Branson draws thousands of visitors with its condensed array of museums, historical attractions, theme parks, and performance venues. Step back in time with a trip to the Titanic Museum and the western-inspired Silver Dollar City, voted one of the world's top ten amusement parks, or take advantage of the town's idyllic location by exploring one of the three nearby lakes and forested state parks. Hailed for its collection of theaters, Branson offers hundreds of live performances each year, from tribute concerts to comedy performances and variety shows. Our United States trip planner combines visitor reviews with your personal interests to make an itinerary informed by experts, but tailored to suit your style.

Where to stay in Branson

Packed with good-value motel rooms, Branson offers decent accommodations at affordable prices even during the height of the tourist season. If you've come to enjoy the views of the Ozarks, look for vacation rental cabins, many of which are available on a nightly basis.
