Lodge-Style Hotel in Branson's Theater District
The rustic Lodge Of The Ozarks puts you within walking distance of several performance venues and music halls found on Branson's famed Highway 76 in Branson—a city on the Ozark Plateau known as the “Live Music Show Capital of the World." Some notable nearby theaters include the Hughes Brothers Theatre, the Mickey Gilley Theater, the Jim Stafford Theater, the Caravelle Theater, the Dutton Theater, Sight and Sound, Dolly Parton’s Dixie’s Stampede, and the Andy Williams Theater.
A wood-paneled lobby, a backyard gazebo, and a cozy fireplace give the lodge a rustic ambiance that extends to the rooms. Many come with light cedar furniture, and others have Victorian-style cherry wood beds and vanities. All stays include a complimentary hot breakfast buffet at the onsite Rafter's Restaurant, which serves American fare à la carte for lunch and dinner.
Families can venture out to The Track Family Fun Park to take advantage of their Go-Kart, Bumper Boat, and other rides included with this deal. This stay also comes with an adventure zipline excursion for two from Adventure Ziplines of Branson, in addition to tickets for two to the 70s Music Celebration Show, which stars Brady Bunch alum Barry WIlliams and showcases a revue of popular songs from the 1970s.
Branson, Missouri: Family-Friendly Theaters and Concert Halls in the Ozarks
If you take a drive through the Ozarks in Missouri, it might seem like an unlikely place to find glittering lights and stage shows—for the most part, it's a rolling plateau of wooded hills, snaking rivers, and limestone bluffs. But follow down Route 76 and you'll find Branson, which looks like a miniature, more family-friendly version of Las Vegas.
Dozens of stages and music halls line Branson's main strip, some of which are owned by stars such as Dolly Parton. On any given night you can watch anything from country music performances to circus acrobatics to magic shows. Check out Six, a harmonizing group of six brothers, at Mickey Gilley Theatre or the Hughes Brothers Theatre's show, "AYO, Starring Voices of Glory", featuring a sibling trio that made it to the Top 5 of America's Got Talent in 2009.
If you're traveling with kids, Silver Dollar City is a safe bet; it's located about 5 miles west of the strip. The popular theme park is built around Marvel Cave and modeled after an 18th-century frontier town. Here you can hop on a mine-car roller coaster, take a tour by lantern through limestone caverns, or watch as blacksmiths hand-forge mailboxes for the mayor's private collection. New to the park this year, Outlaw Run twists and turns passengers through the Ozark Mountains on a wood coaster that goes upside down three times and includes a 720-degree barrel roll.
For a break from the bright lights, it's worth it to explore the surrounding countryside. Within about 30 miles, there are two large lakes—Table Rock and Taneycomo. Each is stocked with trout and has boats available for rent. Or head to Ruth and Paul Henning Conservation Area, where you can bike or hike along Roark Creek and through dense oak forests. Paul Henning, who was inspired to create the Beverly Hillbillies after a Boy Scout trip to the Ozarks, donated the 1,534-acre reserve.
