As comforting as the same-old, same-old can be when you are traveling, you want something new, exciting, and yes, unusual, if at all possible! You may visit the same places that all the tourists that have gone before you visit, but you also want to step outside the box and explore the sights and attractions that have not yet become as popular. There’s no place better to do so than right here in Branson! This guide to three unusual activities and attractions will ensure that every minute of your stay is filled with Branson fun and merriment—and of course, it’s just the beginning of the wonders you can expect!

Bull Sharks Need Love Too

The ocean is more than a couple of hundred miles away from Branson, but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t expect to have any shark encounters. Branson’s Wild World at 2020 W 76 Country Boulevard is a combination theme park and aquarium featuring sharks and other undersea creatures. The opportunity to feed the bull sharks is an experience that all daredevils will love, and because it’s done under perfectly safe circumstances, even the non-thrill seekers will enjoy getting up close and personal to this Branson fun!

Experience a Nostalgic Visit to the 5 & 10 Store

There once was a time when the local 5 & Dime was the hangout for the community; romances started, gossip was spread, and the bargains ensured we’d come back again the next day and the day after that and the day after that! Today, online shopping and convenience stores have pushed the 5 & Dime off the horizon, except in Branson! Dicks 5 & 10 store at 103 W Main Street is one of the last remaining stores in the nation, and a visit here is an adventure you will never forget! Offering everything from penny candy to home décor since 1961, not much has changed at Dick’s, something we are grateful for every day!

Road Trip to Columbia

Road trips are our favorite thing in the whole world, and when you take the 3.5-hour drive to Columbia, you get the added benefit of enjoying the scenery along the way! Home to the McBaine Bur Oak, a 400-year-old oak tree that will win your heart (especially when you visit at sunset in the summer), Thomas Jefferson’s ORIGINAL tombstone, Boathenge (Stonehenge with boats instead of stones!) and the World’s Largest Fork, there’s something unique and special hidden around every corner!
