Family-Friendly Resort on Table Rock Lake
When Missouri's Route 76 reaches Branson it becomes 76 Country Boulevard, a road famous for its abundance of country-music shows, dinner-theater venues, and retail stores. Just a few miles west is Silver Dollar City, a sprawling theme park outfitted with roller coasters and pioneer craft shops. Two miles off Route 76 and a short drive from Branson's Theatre District, Still Waters 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 Still Waters Resort owner Anthony Battaglia. "You get here and you don’t have to leave.”
Private balconies attached to the resort's lakefront condominiums look out on rolling green hills and placid blue water. Inside, modern furnishings comfortably support large groups. There's a full kitchen for cooking meals for the whole family, and a washer and dryer to clean up after spaghetti-sauce mishaps. After a long day, take a dip in whirlpool tubs or warm up beside in-room fireplaces. On nice days, complimentary bike rentals allow you to explore the scenic terrain surrounding the resort.
Branson, Missouri: Toe-Tapping Music in the Ozark Mountains
Located just 35 miles south of Springfield in Ozark Mountain Country, Branson has become known as the Live Music Show Capital of the World. Fifty performance venues showcase more than 100 events every night, ranging from rock 'n' roll revues and magic shows to country concerts and ventriloquist acts. Andy Williams, Bill Medley, Dolly Parton, Yakov Smirnoff, and other famous names entertain crowds here year after year.
Branson's summers are warm, and the weather stays mild the rest of the year. Consequently, visitors enjoy year-round hiking, fishing, and 1910s-style flying-contraption experimenting. The Ruth and Paul Henning Conservation Area spreads across 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.
