If all the great shows and attractions in Branson weren’t already reason enough to visit the area, the cooler autumn months bring some especially inviting features along with them. So if you’re planning a trip to Branson during the next few months, here are a few things you can look forward to.
Beautiful foliage. This goes without saying, but the Ozarks are absolutely beautiful during the fall months. Come mid-September and October, all of the trees dotting the rolling hills of Branson will change to bright reds, oranges and browns, making for some incredibly breathtaking views while you’re hiking, driving or traveling the trails of the area on horseback.
Cooler weather. Autumn weather in Branson can range from 50-80 degrees Fahrenheit making which makes outdoor activities and sightseeing much more comfortable than the hot and sticky 90 degree summer days. All you need is a light jacket for the cooler evenings and you’re good to go!
Christmas Shows. Christmas in Branson begins on November 1 and so do the Christmas shows! The 2014 Branson Christmas Shows include (but are definitely not limited to) Christmas on the Trail Chuckwagon Dinner Show, the Andy Williams Christmas Show, the Dixie Stampede Christmas Show and An Old Time Christmas at Silver Dollar City. For a full list of shows that start getting into the Christmas spirit come early November, visit http://www.bransonshows.com/articles/BransonChristmasShows.htm.
Festivals, festivals and more festivals. Choose from the Autumn Daze Festival, the War Eagle Mills Arts & Craft Fair, Branson’s Veteran Homecoming, National Harvest Festival at Silver Dollar City and even more! You’ll be all festivaled out by the end of the Christmas season, but nonetheless, the city of Branson is always sure to provide a wealth of options for everyone.
Thanksgiving weekend. Thanksgiving is a special time of the year no matter where you spend it, but Branson is sure to impress. Get some of your Christmas shopping done at some of the great outlet malls and specialty shops, eat a fantastic meal without having to lift a finger at one the many local restaurants or gaze upon the gorgeous Christmas lights displays all over the area.
The fall season does not disappoint in Branson, so stop by if you can and experience all the great highlights of a fall trip to the Ozarks!
