Branson vacation activity #3: Shopping at Branson Landing

There’s plenty of shopping you can do in Branson during your vacation. However, if you’re trying to pack as much shopping as you can into a small amount of time, you can’t beat stopping off at the Branson Landing. There are TONS of places to shop and plenty of restaurants you can swing by for a bite to eat.

The different offerings of the various shops include clothing and shoes, toys, gifts, home goods, and health and beauty products. Your family will also enjoy a scenic boardwalk that runs along the 1.5-mile Tanycomo Lakefront. Near the boardwalk you’ll find their famous fountain that merges water, fire, light, and music. The fountain sprays 120-foot geysers and cannons blast fire into the air all choreographed to light and music every hour beginning at noon.

Activity #4: Promised Land Zoo

Activities available include their Foot Safari, Parakeet Paradise, a two-mile Drive-Thru Safari, Guided Tram Tour, VIP Animal Encounters, Animal Adventure Building with Touch Tanks, and more!
