Famous BBQ, a lively blues music scene, and two professional sports teams – those are just a few of things that have helped put St. Louis on the map. But sooner or later, despite all the excitement that takes place in the city under the arch, you’ll want an escape. So where do you go when you need a break from a busy metropolis, but still want plenty of great things to do? The answer is simple: Branson, MO, one of the best weekend getaways from St. Louis. Less than four hours away from St. Louis, Branson offers fun for visitors of any age, surrounded by the beauty of Ozarks. Here are a few of the reasons why Branson is one of the best weekend getaways in the midwest.
Branson is commonly referred to as the Live Entertainment Capital of the World, a title it rightly holds. Pick any day of the week, and you can choose from dozens of live shows. Dinner shows, captivating theatre performances and concerts from some of the biggest names in the music industry. There’s the Showboat Branson Belle, which takes its passengers on a cruise around beautiful Table Rock Lake while featuring a great live show and dinner. Or, for an incredible live production of biblical stories (complete with live animals and impressive stages sets), there’s the Sight and Sound Theatre. You don’t want to miss an evening at Dolly Parton’s Dixie Stampede, either! Add to the mix concerts from the Oak Ridge Boys, Charlie Daniels Band, and more, and you won’t have any trouble finding an exciting show or concert. Amazing live entertainment is just one of the many things that make Branson one of the best weekend getaways from St. Louis.
Revisit your childhood at The World’s Largest Toy Museum, explore the fate of history’s most well-known cruise ship at The Titanic Museum, and witness the weird and wild at Ripley’s Believe It Or Not! Branson. Or, head to Silver Dollar City, Branson’s premier theme park! Roller coasters, annual festivals, the White Water water park, live craftsmen, and much more are part of the excitement at Silver Dollar City. Fascinating museums and family fun at Silver Dollar City should put Branson at the top of your list of weekend vacations near St. Louis.
Live shows and theme park fun are great, but what makes Branson one of the best weekend getaways from St. Louis isn’t solely its entertainment value. Branson is surrounded by the Ozarks, and finding a part of the area that isn’t beautiful is a difficult task. If you need the peace and quiet that only the outdoors can afford, you’ve come to the right place. Branson is home to Table Rock Lake and Table Rock State Park, where you can enjoy the serenity of a hike on of the area’s many trails, or spend a day fishing on the lake. Anyone who finds their escape on the fairway will love the award-winning golf courses in Branson. They feature pro-worthy layouts and picturesque scenery! Take a breath of fresh air and enjoy nature when you visit Branson.
