3 Reasons to Book a Hotel on Route 76 (Historic Branson Strip)

3 Reasons to Book a Hotel on Route 76 (Historic Branson Strip)
April 19, 2022

If you’re booking a hotel, consider staying right where the activity, music, and excitement are all happening. Route 76 runs all across the Ozarks and right through Branson’s city center; it's the historic Branson Strip — otherwise known as 76 Country Music Boulevard. 

In today’s post, iBranson gives you the top three reasons why you should book your hotel right on the landing strip.

1. Hotels on the Branson Strip are Close to Everything

You’ll save on two major expenses: gas and time (something we don’t seem to have enough of). Staying in a hotel that’s right in the heart of Branson, it’ll make getting from one entertainment venue to another or from an evening dinner to your hotel easier than ever. 

Everything you might need lines conveniently upon this brief stretch of Highway 76

  • Shows
  • Shopping Centers
  • Restaurants 
  • Museums
  • Live Performances
  • Attractions


Whether you want to check out the 7,200 sea animals at the Aquarium, shop at the Tanger Outlet, experience the famous Titanic Museum or watch an amazing performance at the Grand Country Music Hall, booking a hotel on West 76 Country Boulevard is the perfect choice for the occasion. 

You might skip the car altogether and simply walk from one place to another — if your hotel is close enough, that is. Either way, not having to traverse through too much traffic is an amazing benefit when it comes to making your time count on your family vacation or your short weekend adventure in Branson. 

2. Immerse Yourself In a Historic Area of Branson 

The famed 76 Strip in Branson started seeing major development in the late 60s when the Presley family established a recurring show there, followed soon after by the Baldknobbers — two of the oldest running live shows in Branson!

If you’re going to Branson for a visit, why not make it count? Get to see first-hand where it all began. Route 76 is where Branson’s reputation as the "Live Music Capital of the World" got its start through great live performance artists that are still performing today. 

It’s a living and breathing part of Branson, Missouri that offers an experience you probably won’t find in other parts of the town. Marvel at the fact that this bustling, thriving part of Branson started as just a country road with a handful of live performance acts, some of which are still popular today. 

3. Take in the Best Views of the City Branson 

Branson’s iconic 3.3-mile stretch of road that makes up a dazzling portion of the 435-mile highway offers visitors a lot of pleasantries to the eyes, whether during the day or at night. It’s not something you’ll want to miss out on while you’re in Branson.

There are plenty of hotels alongside Route 76 that host high-altitude views where you and your family can look down and marvel at the beautifully lit shops, restaurants and theaters at night. 

You’ll truly love being able to see the entire Branson Strip at night, lit up with neon lights and bright showtime screens. You can experience a thriving evening as you enjoy the abundant nightlife, games and showings that are often but a short walk away from your hotel. 

Which Hotels Are Nearest to Route 76 Branson Strip?

There are plenty of amazing hotels to stay in. Some are closer to the famous strip than others. 

The Best Western Center Pointe Inn is your best choice. That's because it's in the absolute center, the heart, of Branson's Route 76 Hwy. 

You might be looking for lodging that's a tad bit closer to shopping outlets, boutique shops or the Branson Landing. The Best Western Plus Landing View Inn & Suites is a great choice. It's is located towards the downtown-side of Branson. 

The Quality Inn West is located on 3601 Shepherd of the Hills Expressway, right on the corner of Branson's Highway 76, on the far western end. It might seem further from Route 76, but in reality, it's quite close. If you're wanting to be near Silver Dollar City, this is the best hotel to stay at.
