  1. i have been to branson several times, my favoriate things to do when i go down there is to see a show such as noah, or Dixie stampedee and then go shopping and then to the imax. there are so many cool things that are there, everyone should go at least once

  2. I’ve being to Branson several times. I definitely recommend it for the Family to visit because they’re is alot to do, see, and its just Family vacation spot to go to. Go see some shows, ex comedy, country, dinner shows, magic shows, or sightseeing tours, or ride on the Branson Showboat Bell dinner or lunch cruise.. Or just go funn shopping at the outlets, or visit Historic Branson Landing..

  3. Branson is a great place to visit for a family vacation. There is something for everyone. Tons of shows for all age groups, theme parks, shopping, etc. guarantees there will be something for everyone.

  4. I remember when I was a kid, I found anything about the Titanic interesting, I kept trying to find new stuff about it. Now older we have a replica of it in Branson and I haven’t went yet. I really hope to go soon, this ice craving contest sounds pretty cool too, I have always wanted to see someone do this

  5. I’ve been to Branson so many times I really can’t even remember. I always have a good time when I go. I’ve been to a lot of the shows, dinners, and attractions but I haven’t been to the Titanic yet. I really want to so hopefully I can go soon.

  6. The Titanic museum is awsome. I have yet to go to the ice Competition, but I am sure it will be awsome. I am thinking about going to it this year. I also heard on the news the profit from the museum that day goes to a local shool’s chior to send them to new york. An even better reason to visit.

  7. I grew up around the Branson area and have seen most shows and been to most attractions that Branson has to offer but there are still a few I haven’t been to that I want to go to. The Titanic Museum is one of them, I’ve heard so many good things about the Titanic which makes me want to visit it even more so than I did before.

  8. The Wedding Vow Renewals is something I will have to check out in February when I’m up there for my birthday! I think this would make the best present ever!

  9. Ok, so I actually went to the ice show. It was pretty cool, we got there like the last hour we saw a lot of neat ice carving. I would suggest getting their earlier because a few had broken by the time we got there. I was amazed by the detail.
    And yes Robert they do have actual artifacts from the ship wreck. I am not sure if their is another exhibition, but I would hope so.

  10. I absolutely loved the Titanic movie and im glad to see that there is an exhibit now. I am going to have to plan a trip to go see it.

  11. I was really small the last time I saw ice carvings but the memory is very vivid..I remember I was so amazed with what people could do with ice..It was incredible and I wouldn’t mind seeing some carvings again

  12. I didn’t realize Titanic held so many events. The tea party sounds cute! I’ve never seen ice carvings so that would be interesting to see.

  13. Hey, such a nice experience its been checking out a blog such as this. So I thought I would offer some feedback. This site was actually recommended to me by a work collegue so based on that I thought I should ‘trot on over’ & ‘sus it out’ and yes, my friend was right… good stuff. There are so many blogs published which are dull and it is cetainly heartwarming to see someone shooting from the hip, don’t stop doin’ it.
