The holidays are one of the most beautiful times to visit Branson. Along with the classic shows, you can find Christmas specials and events, as well as drive-thru lights. Planning a Branson vacation during the Christmas holidays doesn’t have to be stressful. In today’s blog, iBranson will give you tips on how to have a stress-free holiday vacation.
As with anything, being prepared leaves you time to relax later. Don’t go into a holiday vacation blind, but instead, specifically plan the hotel you want to stay at, the attractions and shows you want to see, and any restaurants you are hoping to visit while in town.
Make a list of your must-see shows, and be sure to write down available times for each. Some attractions may be open any time, but the ones with only one or two daily offerings are the ones to plan around. You don’t want any last-minute surprises.
One of the most popular attractions over the Christmas holidays is Silver Dollar City. While SDC is a top destination year-round, many people wait all year to come to visit when the park is decorated top to bottom in magnificent Christmas lights - in fact, there are mover 6.5 million lights to enjoy!
Another popular place is Dolly Parton’s Stampede, which puts on a special Christmas show featuring its horses and stunt riders. Enjoy a Christmas-themed competition while enjoying a full meal during the performance.
If you are interested in drive-thru Christmas lights, there are two popular options. The Lights of Joy display is a traditional yearly display open from 5 pm until 11 pm. The other is Shepherd of the Hills Trail of Lights, located on the famous Shepherd of the Hills homestead.
