Tell me about Branson, MO.

Jump to last reply

We're looking for an early summer destination from Philadelphia. We had been thinking about Las Vegas, but for various reasons we are kind of off that. DH very much likes the idea of driving to Branson, and we are seriously thinking about that. We are two adults in our 40's and an HFA teenager (good about travel). I can get a package with a hotel with an indoor waterpark and two days of tickets to Silver Dollar City very reasonably, and had thought it might be practical to sandwich in a visit to the Laura Ingalls Wilder Homestead as well.

We are thinking we can drive it in two days each way (seems to be about 18 hours drive time), out very early on the first day with an overnight in Terre Haute, and a quick stop in St. Louis on the second day, and back with a slightly later start, and a stop somewhere in Ohio (an acquaintance recommended Dayton). Thoughts?
