Family-Friendly Destination Resort on Table Rock Lake
When Missouri Route 76 arrives in Branson, Missouri, it becomes 76 Country Boulevard, a road famous for its abundance of country music shows, dinner-theater venues, and shopping. Once visitors have had their fill of this part of Branson, they can take Route 76 a few miles west to Silver Dollar City, a sprawling theme park with roller coasters, live music, and pioneer craft shops. Located just 2 miles off Route 76 and a short drive from Branson's Theatre District, Stillwaters Lakefront Resort offers a convenient home base to explore these attractions and take advantage of nearby Table Rock Lake's quiet, natural setting. “It’s a time for families to get together and have fun, break away from the daily grind," says Stillwaters Lakefront Resort owner Anthony Battaglia. "You get here and you don’t have to leave.”
Each private balcony off the resort's lakefront condominiums looks out to rolling green hillside and placid blue water. Modern furnishings comfortably support large groups: a full kitchen hosts cooking for the whole family, and a washer and dryer cleanse clothes after loving food fights. After a long day, sojourners can dip into whirlpool tubs or warm up beside in-room fireplaces. Complimentary bike rentals allow peddlers to take in the resort's scenic terrain on a spring day.
Branson, Missouri: Toe-Tapping Musical Scene in the Ozarks
Located just 35 miles south of Springfield in Ozark Mountain Country, Branson has become known as the Live Music Show Capital of the World, with 50 live performance theaters showcasing more than 100 shows. Shows range from rock 'n' roll revues and magic shows to theatrical dramas and ventriloquists. Andy Williams, Bill Medley, Dolly Parton, Yakov Smirnoff, and other famous names make their home in Branson by entertaining crowds year after year.
Because Branson's winters are usually mild, when average daytime temps rise well into the 50s, visitors enjoy year-round hiking, fishing, and 1910s-style flying-contraption experimenting. The Ruth and Paul Henning Conservation Area spans more than 1,000 acres of oak and hickory forests situated on rolling hills, an ideal setting for spotting northern cardinals, carolina chickadees, and other birds.
Although Stillwaters Lakefront Resort offers specials throughout the year, this Groupon is still the best deal available.
