Branson isn’t just one of the best places to vacation with family, it’s also one of the best places to take a selfie! So grab your camera because we’ve compiled some of the best photo ops in the area for you to snap fantastic keepsake photos of you and your family while you’re having the time of your lives in Branson, Missouri.
1. The 22-ft. tall transformer at Ripley’s Believe it Or Not!
Why wouldn’t you take a photo with that? Plus, what a great opportunity to get creative with your status updates on Facebook. “Oh, just taking a stroll with my intergalactic body guard, Optimus Prime.”
2. The 360 view from Inspiration tower
Snap some fantastic pictures of the lush Ozarks landscape from this 230-foot-tall structure. This view would make for a breathtaking panorama or a backdrop unlike any other for your family photo.
3. Celebrities at the Hollywood Wax Museum
Now you can finally get a picture with Elvis Presley, Gwyneth Paltrow and Johnny Depp. You can use them to make fun homemade postcards and they also serve as great ammo for April Fool’s jokes in the office.
4. One of Branson’s REAL Celebrities
OK, so the Wax Museum April Fool’s joke didn’t go over well. Next time you’re in Branson, get a photo with one of the area’s talented stars and entertainers that aren’t made of wax. Get your tickets to one of the many shows and hang around after it’s over to request a photo with the stars. Many of them are more than willing to, including Yakov Smirnoff!
5. White Water’s KaPau Plummet: the before and after
Get a shot both before and after your kids experience this 26 feet-per-second free fall for an all too telling scrapbook entry.
6. A bird’s eye view from a Chopper Charters Helicopter Tour
Chances are you haven’t had the chance to ride in a helicopter very often, so document this special occasion with a photo from the cockpit as you soar above the Branson skyline.
7. Countless twinkling lights at Silver Dollar City’s An Old Time Christmas
You’ll have to wait until November for this one, but the dazzling photos you will get are worth every minute! Think of all the sweet family Christmas photos you will get. There are way too many photo ops with this event alone.
8. Inside the caverns of Marvel Cave
Pose inside Missouri’s deepest cave with the rock formations that are still growing today.
9. Flying through the canopy on a Branson Zipline Tour
Have one of the staff snap a photo of your family harnessed in and ready to go on your zipline tour before you embark on an adventure through the trees.
10. Capture the natural wildlife of Branson’s three lakes
Table Rock Lake, Bull Shoals Lake and Lake Taneycomo make up what’s known as the Tri-lakes area. You just might be able to spot some amazing wildlife here like red and gray foxes, wild turkeys and tarantulas. These creatures in their natural habitat make for great photos every time you visit.
