A beautiful view from the hill top at Branson, Missouri.
Well, Terry and I have talked about it for a few years and we finally did it. We took a trip to Branson, Missouri and what a great time we had! When they say there is something for everyone, well, that just about says it all. From Delaware it is about a two day drive in the motorhome. We passed through St. Louis, Missouri at night and the Gateway Arch was indeed a beautiful sight. When in Branson, we stayed at the Musicland Kampground which is located right on the main strip, so we were able to walk to a lot of shows and stores. The sites were very reasonable, only $33.00 a night! This city makes great use of it’s theaters, often sharing them with more than one performer. This means you can see more than one show a day and we took advantage of that. There is a show for everyone. During our 5 day stay here is what we attended, the Presley Jubilee, Broadway, the Star Spangled Celebration, Yakov (the Russian comedian),the Dixie Stampede, the Shanghai Circus, and the Showboat-Branson Belle. We did a few other things that will be mentioned in other stories. Our favorite place to eat was Montana Mike’s, they had great food and service. There were a few shows we didn’t get to see but, are worth mentioning, Kirby & Bambi (illusionist) , the Dutton’s (from America’s Got Talent), Roy Rogers & Dale Evans Happy Trails Theater and the Shephard of the Hills. There is one thing that I thought strange, with all the cowboys and country music, there was only one western wear store. Needless to say, I didn’t do much shopping! The nice thing about the city is that it is spread out and everything goes in a circle, so if you get lost, keep going and you will probably end up where you started. There is also very little traffic problems. On the way home we stopped to see one of Terry’s Amish friends who moved to Missouri. Owen and his wife, are now farmers. They live way off the beaten path but, are very happy running their own farm . We had a wonderful visit and learned a little about farming. Maybe this will come in handy next year when we expand our garden! For more of our adventure, read on…….
