Branson has a long and rich history that is captured brilliantly in the shops and demeanor of the Historical Downtown area. Nostalgia shops, delis, flea markets, ice cream parlors, museums, and theaters are scattered among a few hundred idyllic store fronts amidst the spectacular historic town center.
This week I visited the endearing Historic Downtown, meandering through the groups of friendly visitors and locals to experience the atmosphere of this outstanding and cultural shopping district. I had a rejuvenating afternoon admiring fresh art and activity before riding the free trolley around the entire area.
The holidays are clearly near as shops are decked out with tinsel and lights for the Christmas season. Adjacent to the Historic Downtown, the Branson Landing shopping center is geared up for the jolly holiday as well, displaying many festive trees and displays.
I highly recommend a trip down to this tremendous shopping area as the season for gift buy is upon us. Buy your father that unique object you can only find at Dick’s Five & Dime or peruse the many holiday specials at the Branson Landing this year.
Bring the whole family down to enjoy the Adoration Parade, the Christmas parade which winds its way through the cozy downtown area. This year, December 8th will mark the 64th annual celebration. Don’t miss it!
