The Grand Village Shops

This unique shopping center is also located on west Highway 76, but it is worlds away from The Grand Village Shops. At Engler Block you will experience everything from dining to demonstrations. There is so much to keep the family busy you could make a weekend of Engler Block! You can enjoy tutorials to learn the dulcimer at Art Folk Music, have old-time photos taken at Ol Time Photos, watch glass blowing and sculpting at Helwig Art Glass, or watch craftsman design and make the precious blankets at Ozark Quilts. That is only a sampling of what you can expect at Engler Block!
Like many outlet centers, Tanger Outlets is home to incredible discount shopping. Unlike the other shopping centers in Branson, Tanger is home to everything from American Eagle Outfitters to Zales. If you spend the day at Tanger Outlets, you could go home with apparel, footwear, accessories, housewares, or any number of specialty items. When you need to replenish your strength for a second wind, there are also many places to eat at Tanger Outlets.
The newest addition to Branson’s shopping destinations, Branson Landing has many of the shops that Tanger Outlets has. However, at the Landing you’re going to find many more specialty shops than anywhere else in Branson. If you’re looking for that special one-of-a-kind gift, this is the place you need to look. Aside from all of the shops, there are also several restaurants and a few choices for entertainment. Branson Landing is a great place for shopping, but it also makes for a nice walk outside.
If you’re looking to stay in Branson and turn your one-day shopping trip into a weekend excursion, there are a few great places to stay. The Gazebo Inn is one of the more popular hotels in Branson and it’s conveniently located right on the 76 strip.
