Branson is known for its all-year-round heartland experiences. A lot of what keeps the vacation destination busy in the winter has a lot to do with shopping and shows but, also, the warm and cheerful feeling you get from visiting Silver Dollar City’s An Old Time Christmas. Recently, Silver Dollar City was named by USA Today as one of the “10 Great Theme Parks for the Holidays.”
The park is transformed into a winter festival of lights and Christmas magic, and everyone in the family can enjoy the park as most of the rides are still open. If you aren’t into the bitter cold freezing your face as you go from one fast-moving ride to the next, there are lots of shopping options and food choices – enjoy them while holding the hot beverage of your choosing.
Of course, you’re in Branson, so there are award-winning shows you have to see while you are at Silver Dollar City. From a fantastic light show with a five-story Christmas tree to staged productions such as “A Dickens’ Christmas Carol” and “It’s a Wonderful Life,” you are going to find yourself humming carols the rest of the night. Tis’ the season!
