    Going to Branson, MO

    My wife and I are heading to Branson,MO in a couple of weeks. We have the hotel booked already now we are looking for discounted tickets for shows and attractions. Does anyone know where we can find these? We want to go to the Dixie Stampede, Titanic Museum, Veterans Museum, Noah the Musical and the Imax for sure. Any help would be appreciated.

    You can probably find a discounted tix once you get there. Thats what I did past two times Ive been there. They have lots of good outlet shopping.....

    There are ticket places all over once you get there.

    Chamber of Commerce there can probably point you to the best place to coordinate all of that if you want to plan ahead, but it's a pretty easy place to just get there and shoot from the hip.

    The Titanic Museum is really impressive, and the Dixie Stampede is a riot. We had an absolutely great time at that place!!!

    Re: Going to Branson, MO

    I was really diappointed in the selection of shows when I was there in June. Ended up going the Dixie Stampede, it was entertaining and the food was good, you have to eat with your fingers, so it is kind of messy.

    Thousand Hills & Holiday Hills golf courses are nice down there. There is always the giant go-kart tracks too

    Re: Going to Branson, MO

    Try Whipper Snappers for the all you can each lobster and crab buffet. It's around $30, but well worth it IMO. It's at 236 Shepherd of the Hills Expressway. You can probably find a coupon down there for a few bucks off.
