If so, where did you stay and how was it?
I hear the fishing is good in addition to the entertainment and shopping attractions.
It's alright. Shows are all pretty good. Busy as hell on the weekends. Tourist trappy. What are you interested in?
It's not far away from me, so can't help with lodgings.
P.s. - Bass Pro's new wildlife museum and aquarium PLUS the NRA firearm museum (in Springfield) and Fantastic Caverns (three miles North of Springfield) are all awesome.
And Lamberts in Ozark, MO (home of the throwed roll) has some of the best food in the area...but bring cash...credit/debit cards aren't accepted.
I have not been there since it turned into a tourist trap! The fishing use to be good! As far as gambling goes, who goes to a second rate vegas? Do the real thing!
I took the fam a few years ago. We stayed in an amazing cabin right on the lake.
If you go, go while its warm. The town shuts down in winter. Even eateries close..
In the summer or early fall, it would be comparable to gatlinburg and pigeon forge without the view. As many know, those "mountains" in branson are more like hills.
Don't go on the Duck ride at the lake.
Tornadoes like Joplin
I have no desire to go. Kind of like Las Vegas. What's there to see?
Same advice I gave do the real thing in Vegas./ The fisherrman may be interested in Branson though you can take in some shows and good fishing close. Otherwise Vegas baby!
