Why do we call Branson “Fun City, U.S.A.”?
Branson is an ultimate vacation destination for people of all ages and interests. Its attractions are as unique and diverse as you can find anywhere in America. Branson is all about entertainment as its claim to fame. And it does that extremely well. It boasts one of the most impressive live theater strips in America along Country Boulevard. Once known only for country-western, in recent years Branson has matured and now features all genres of music, comedy, dance, and more. A major award-winning amusement park built into wooded landscapes features a naturalized venue for themed and thrilling rides, music, an impressive cave, and artisans working on site. Lake Taneycomo provides all sorts of water recreation including “ducks” (land to water crafts), sternwheel showboat, and excursion vehicles. A downtown mall featuring one of America’s most enjoyable water features takes full advantage of its waterfront locale. Other unusual attractions where you can hang, swing, or attempt daredevil stunts abound. Whether it’s ziplines or coasters, or museums of all types related to history, natural science, or one-of-a-kind experiences (like a replica of the Titanic), diversions of all sorts flourish.
With its diverse entertainment and recreation base, Branson appeals to people of all ages and inclinations. You would be safe to take your boisterous children, frail grandparents, and finicky friends—they will all find something to pique their interest.
