Sometimes it’s the things you don’t know that make the biggest difference in your vacation plans, and if you’re like most of us, you plan out every detail of your upcoming vacation to make sure you experience the best of what that area has to offer. But what happens when you miss out on a little-known detail? You lose out on what could potentially be the trip of the lifetime! Here’s a list of five Branson facts you didn’t know about to help you start planning accordingly!


Remember the Kewpie Doll?

Kewpie dolls made from plastic, with their big eyes, appealing smiles, and that little curl in the center of their forehead were extremely popular starting around the 1950s, and those versions were born not far from Branson! Rose O’Neill was the famous illustrator of these darling babies, and the Bonniebrook mansion where she once lived is open as museum for your touring pleasures!


Visiting Off Season Can Save You a Bundle

Branson shows tend to have a run that lasts March through December, but if you visit during our coldest months, the same shows may be offered at vastly reduced prices! Also, you may be able to find some really good deals on vacation rental properties. Empty beds are common during January and February, and owners are always delighted about an unexpected rental!


The World’s Largest Toy Museum is Located Right Here

Remembering the beloved toys of our youth always brings a nostalgic smile to our faces, but actually being able to see them all under the same roof? That’s a priceless experience, and one that you can partake in during your unforgettable Branson vacation! Home to over a million toys, including the original Barbie, cast iron toys, and popular Disney ones as well, if you remember it, it most likely will be found here!


The Branson Café Has Been in Existence Since 1910

It’s not often a restaurant stays in business for longer than five years, and it’s practically unheard of for one to stay open for over 100 years! The Branson Café has been serving guests since the first cars started making their way over the dirt roads of downtown Branson, and you have to figure their food is amazing!


You Can Fly in Branson WITHOUT a Plane

Starting this summer, Aerodium Outdoor Flying Adventure offers the opportunity to fly without having to ascend thousands of feet into the clouds! Skydiving has never been so fun or so safe, and the 40 minute adventures will change your world!
