Summer always makes me think of getting away and taking the family somewhere fun, somewhere kid-friendly and exciting. And I have to admit that Branson, Missouri never really crossed my mind. But after doing a little research on the area, I can easily imagine our family having an amazing time there.
The Hilton Branson Convention Center Hotel and the Hilton Promenade at Branson Landing both look like excellent places to stay. They offer amazing amenities, as well as great packages and specials like The Great Getaway, where you can save 25% if you book between May 10 and September 6, 2010. The Promenade offers the third night three and there is even a Romance Package. Oo la la. The Hilton Branson Convention Ceneter is located in historic downtown. The hotel is located across from the Hilton Promenade and the new Branson Landing retail and entertainment district situated on Lake Taneycomo. They are minutes from the area's 49 theatres, outlet malls, Table Rock Lake, Silver Dollar City, Celebration City and other attractions, like lakes, museums and theme parks. You can even enjoy 18 holes of golf at the new Payne Stewart Golf Course. And both hotels are pet friendly, too!
The Promenade is home of a $7.5 million dollar water feature, with daily shows that merge light, water, music and fire. Yes. Fire. I have to admit I'm intrigued. 120-foot water geysers and blasting fire cannons? That I would like to see.
Branson Landing offers a one-of-a kind children's play area, an interactive "pirate island theme" called Adventure Cove. Children can explore a miniature light house, climb and slide down a pirate fort, and find sunken treasure all within a controlled environment. I know my kids would like that. I'd like that. I've always had a secret desire to be a pirate...
Of course, Branson offers a ton of live music, like Travis Tritt and Tanya Tucker, as well as many other concerts. This summer they also have events like Branson Z Fest, National Kid's Fest, (which really looks like a good time!) Stage One National Dance Finals, and the Father's Day Bass Pro Boat Show.
Unfortunately, we aren't currently in the position for a vacation, but I can honestly say that when we are, Branson, Missouri will definitely be on the list!
