Thai Thai Cuisine: A One-of-a-Kind Branson Thai Restaurant

Thai CuisineIf you’re searching for that delicious and traditional Thai flavor while you’re in Branson, look no further than Thai Thai Cuisine. Located right off Highway 76 in the shopping plaza next to Dixie Stampede, this place is definitely a gem!

I had the Pad Thai and it was a delicious combination of noodles, chicken and vegetables paired with a creamy thai sauce and then topped off with tasty crushed peanuts. Dare I say it — perfection!

The restaurant is very clean and sports a unique, yet casual, ethnic atmosphere that might just make you forget you’re in Branson, Missouri. Not to mention, the diverse menu of tasty entrees and vegetarian options will leave you at a loss for what to try next!

The portion sizes may be a bit large, but who’s going to complain about getting two meals out of one?

With all of that mouth-watering goodness, quick, attentive service and more than fair prices, you’re bound to make a second (or third) visit back.

I know my heart is set on the Pad Thai but let us know what dish your taste buds fall for at Thai Thai Cuisine!

This Branson restaurant is open Monday-Saturday 11 a.m.-3 p.m. for lunch and 4:30 p.m.-9 p.m. for dinner, and Sunday 11 a.m.-3 p.m. for lunch and 4:30 p.m.-8:30 p.m. for dinner.

Free geocaching for the whole family in Branson, Missouri

geocachingGrab your family, some trail mix, and your GPS for the treasure hunting adventure known as geocaching!

Geocaching is a free, outdoor recreational activity that has gained popularity over the past several years and serves as a great sightseeing excursion for visitors in Branson. If you’ve never heard of it, get ready to discover the next best thing. It’s like hunting for Easter eggs – but better.

How it works

Geocaching was first started in May of 2000 by Dave Ulmer. It was based on the simple rule of “find some stuff, leave some stuff.” You can read the full story in detail at http://www.geocaching.com/about/history.aspx, but the game is simple.

First you register online at http://www.geocaching.com for a free basic membership. After that, you will have access to the GPS coordinates of hidden caches all over the Branson area. Just choose one and plug the coordinates into your GPS. You’re bound to find yourself hiking all over the Branson terrain to find it!

Most caches are containers filled with goodies left there from previous geocachers. Once you locate one, satisfy your curiosity and open it up. Take one object and leave something of your own for others to discover.

To end your hunt, sign the logbook on http://www.geocaching.com/ and post pictures of your adventure for others to see.

A popular cache in Branson is the Dewey Bald Cache, located just off the Dewey Bald Trail in Henning Conservation Area. The trail is moderately easy to navigate for both children and adults, and the view of the Ozark Mountains from the Lookout Tower is fantastic!
