Everybody has that memorable, fun-filled summer that they always fondly reminisce about. Of course, as parents, you want your kids to have the same experience as you plan this year’s summer getaway. As you head out to spend summer in one of the cozy Branson cabins, here are some activities that you can try with your kids to make your family vacation truly memorable.
Spend lazy lake days in Branson cabins.
For most people, summer is a license to spend many sun-soaked days playing in the water. Lucky for you, many Branson vacation property rentals are near the city’s three famous lakes: Taneycomo, Table Rock, and Bull Shoals. If your family is big on fishing, you will want to go to Lake Taneycomo as the place offers fantastic trout fishing. Its headwaters are also the perfect place for fly fishing, which is a unique experience. On the other hand, if your kid loves to stay active, you might want to choose a Branson vacation house near Table Rock Lake as the place offers various options for water sports equipment, such as wave runners, to do water skiing.
There are also shops offering scuba diving and parasailing adventures. However, if you like a mix of both worlds, you should go to Bull Shoals Lake as it is the ideal destination for people who love fishing, swimming, boating, jet skiing, and wakeboarding. Bull Shoals Lake also attracts smaller crowds (compared to the other two lakes), which is a big plus for parents who want what little peace they can get while they are on vacation with the young ones.
Get a Branson vacation house near the thrilling attractions.
Everyone knows that Branson is home to one of America’s most incredible theme parks: the Silver Dollar City. Of course, every kid wants to try the one-of-a-kind 10-story, 90-degree roller coaster drop that you can only find in this theme park. But make sure not to dismiss other equally fantastic attractions that you can find sprinkled around your Branson vacation property rentals. For example, you can go to the Track Family Fun Parks for activities that kids of all ages can enjoy.
If your kids are too young to enjoy the rides in Silver Dollar City and Track Family Fun Parks, you can always go to WonderWorks. This interactive upside-down house lets the whole family experiment and solve mysteries together. Or choose Beyond the Lens!, an attraction that offers interactive games based on historical conspiracy theories.
Spoil your kids with mouth-watering treats that you can only find in Branson.
Most kids cannot resist chicken tenders, just like most adults would choose steak any time of the day. Fortunately, one of the best places to get both is the Great American Steak & Chicken House. The restaurant is also home to the world record-breaking, Instagram-worthy, 43-foot rooster, Mr. Peck. Kids with a more adventurous palate might want to try the Indian Clay Oven. This restaurant is also an excellent place for vegetarians as they have a great selection of delicious vegan dishes on their menu.
For dessert, head on to the Keeter Center at College of the Ozarks, where you can buy freshly-made Nettie Marie’s Homemade Ice Cream. You can get classic flavors like chocolate, vanilla, or strawberry. You can also try the crowd favorites Oreo mint choco chip (mint gelato with crushed Oreos) and Bobcat crunch (chocolate topped with white chocolate chips, toffee bits, almonds, and Turndown cookies). The best thing about their ice cream is that all ingredients are guaranteed farm-raised, adding flavor and texture to every bite.
