Water parks, dinner theaters, and quirky museums line the strip in downtown Branson. Officially known as Highway 76, the family-friendly road became a tourist spot in the early 1960s, when it became a haven for several country-music concerts and comedy shows. More than 100 venues have been added since; you can now see shows ranging from Chinese circuses to the comedy of Yakov Smirnoff to country jubilees.
Located just a few miles south, The Suites at Fall Creek makes for a convenient home base to explore the town. It has a family-friendly environment, with indoor and outdoor pools and a bustling activities center.
The resort's guest rooms have been decorated in traditional country style with wood furnishings and cozy carpets. Studio suites feature partial kitchens and cable TV. Feel free to take a stroll along the property's narrow walking paths to catch a glimpse of some manicured gardens, manmade ponds, and vacationing manatees.
Branson, Missouri: Country-Music Shows, Circuses, and Nearby Lakes
Located in the heart of the Ozarks next to Table Rock Lake, Branson is famous for both its entertainment attractions and picturesque setting. On any given night, you can find country-music tribute shows and live dinner performances lighting up Highway 76. The six-brother musical troupe known simply as Six performs an award-winning a cappella concert most days from March through November.
Fishing remains one of Branson’s most popular activities. Lake Taneycomo is perched at the foot of old Main Street, and its clear, cold waters make it an ideal habitat for trout. Ten minutes from the hotel, Table Rock Lake offers some of the country’s best bass fishing among forests of oak and hickory trees.
