It’s true that Branson is somewhat quieter during the winter months, but there are still a host of ways for you and your family to have fun while avoiding the winter cold and staying warm. Try one of these five fun and family oriented activities out for size.
1. Go to a museum
Branson is full of interesting museums that appeal to visitors of all ages. Take your pick from the Hollywood Wax Museum, The World’s Largest Toy Museum, the Veterans Memorial Museum, Celebrity Car Museum or check out the Dinosaur Museum or Ripley’s Believe It or Not! Museum if you have younger kids.
2. Explore the skies over Branson
Head for the skies with Chopper Charters and take in the bird’s eye view of the city. Instead of being cooped up all winter, enjoy an exciting outdoor adventure while still keeping warm in the cockpit of the helicopter.
3. Go caving
Located in nearby Branson West, Talking Rocks Cavern is the perfect underground family adventure for a warm winter day. Learn all about the rock formations, minerals and wildlife that populate this deep cavern beneath the earth and explore the rest of the 400-acre nature preserve.
4. Shop till you drop
The Branson Landing is the perfect place to get your shop on. With more than 100 retail shops and restaurants, you could easily spend an entire day browsing, dining and picking up new apparel, home decor, gifts and more.
5. Head to the IMAX
Many of the shows in Branson are closed during the months of January and February but you can still catch some great entertainment at the Branson IMAX Entertainment Complex. With more than 15 different indoor shops, a restaurant and snack area and both independent and main stream movies, you’re bound to find something fun to do here!
