The holidays come only once a year, and they’re the one time of year where everything needs to go right. A crummy holiday can sour the mood for the coming year, while a nice one makes us hopeful for the future. And when you put a holiday on top of it all, you can find yourself stressing over making things stress-free! However, if you have the chance to celebrate a Branson Christmas, you can rest easy knowing that there will be plenty of fun and relaxation.



For being in the mountains, Branson’s temperatures are quite agreeable. You won’t get the white Christmas you’re dreaming of, as forecasts for December 2017 don’t plan on dropping below freezing. On the other hand, this means you won’t have to dread going outside as some further north are already doing.


Silver Dollar City

If you’re looking to have some fun during your Branson MO Christmas, you have to visit Silver Dollar City! This 1880’s inspired theme park is one of the best amusement parks in the country, according to Fodor’s Travel. It features over 40 rides, plus live craftsmen demonstrating their talents. And this year, Silver Dollar City is going all-out with their Christmas celebration, including a five-story tree with light and sound special effects!


Christmas Lights

Silver Dollar City’s Christmas displays already involve over five million lights, but if you can’t get enough of the joy and wonder that Christmas displays invoke, Branson’s got you covered. Gift of Lights on Expressway Lane is a drive-through light show that celebrates both the fun and miraculous sides of Christmas. It includes displays showing milestones of Christ’s life, such as his birth, baptism, and resurrection. But it also features some lighthearted displays such as dinosaurs and butterflies.

Vacation is often a time of overeating and poorly made food decisions. There are so many new restaurants in the town you are exploring, you really don’t want to miss trying something that could be your next favorite dish. And then the vacation ends, and you find that your comfy clothes are now your tight clothes and suddenly all the burgers, baklavas, and barbecue you ate begins to feel like a huge mistake!

Well, we care about our guests, and we want to help you from making any mistakes, so we have compiled a list of restaurants in Branson that serve healthy food that is tasty as well! You don’t have to eat healthy every meal, but changing it up a bit every so often will keep the comfy clothes fitting as they should!


Cantina Laredo, 1001 Branson Landing Boulevard

No, there’s nothing wrong with your eyes; we HAVE included a Mexican restaurant on our list of healthy eats in Branson! Skip the chips and salsa (or at the very least, limit your intake!) and try the grilled salmon served with asparagus and cilantro rice for a healthy and delicious meal that won’t have you busting your seams!


Landry’s Seafood House, 2900 West 76 Country Boulevard

It is a bit of a cliché to have a seafood restaurant on a list of healthy eats in Branson, but you can’t get any healthier than a dish that comes straight from the sea. While there are breaded and fried items on their menu, you won’t miss the fried food when you try today’s catch grilled, broiled, or seared!


Thai Thai Cuisine, 1615 East State Highway 76

We’re always excited when one of our favorite restaurants offers an extensive vegan or vegetarian menu, and Thai Thai is definitely a fave! Pretty much everything on the menu is offered as a vegetarian option, and the Pahd Eggplant is so delicious, hearty, and filling, you won’t even realize there’s no meat in it!


Nature’s Sunshine Health Foods, 827 West Main Street #101

Because you won’t always feel like putting your pants on, you can start your vacation by stopping by this health food store and stocking up on healthy options to enjoy in your Sunset Nightly Rentals vacation escape!
