Branson is a Top Spring Break Destination


Branson, MO, is famous for its live entertainment, but there is so much more. Spring offers longer days of play and is a perfect time to visit Branson before the summer crowds. Get outdoors and enjoy fun, sun, and endless entertainment.

Here are the top five things to do in Branson in the spring.

Outdoor Adventures

Branson is located in the heart of the Ozark Mountain Range and spring offers beautiful mountain views with blooming wildflowers. There are endless ways to take in the outdoors, from a relaxing hike to high-energy activities. There is plenty of space to enjoy nature on the trails. You can also explore on horseback, take a 40-mile round trip on the Branson Scenic Railway, zipline, tour the caves, or for an adrenaline-pumping experience, ride the mountain coaster.

Water Recreation on Branson’s Three Beautiful Lakes

Kids and adults alike will love lake days in Branson! Branson’s three incredible lakes are known as the Tri-Lakes area. The water is clean and clear, with each lake offering something unique.

Table Rock Lake is a top destination. There are many spots to hang out at the beach with 800 miles of shoreline. Have a picnic lunch or rent a boat for water sports or fishing. End the day with dinner on a showboat lake cruise. The deck views are amazing!

Lake Taneycomo is famous for trout fishing. If you’ve never tried trout fishing or looking for the best spots to catch a rainbow or brown trout, the team at Hotel Grand Victorian can help you find the perfect guide. Lake Taneycomo also offers the wonderful Branson Landing on the shoreline to walk, shop, and savor dinner. Visit the marina to rent a canoe, kayak, or pontoon for a relaxing cruise around the lake.

Bull Shoals Lake is excellent for scuba diving and is known for bass fishing. A fun fact is that there are 20 parks located around the Bull Shoals Lake shores. The shoreline is undeveloped, offering beautiful views. This is a less-trafficked lake if you want to escape the crowds and enjoy the day floating on the water.

Entertainment and Live Music

The famous 76 strip entertainment scene started back in 1959. At the time, the Branson shows were primarily country music, but now there is something for everyone from every genre. There are shows for kids, shows on boats, comedy shows, music and dinner shows, and more. With over 100 shows per night, you can create your own personal concert every night of your stay.
