What could possibly make your vacation in the beautiful city of Branson—the entertainment capital of the Ozarks—even better? How about experiencing the sights of Branson in an entirely new and unique way?

Vacationers coming to Branson can explore the city and jump into the Pokémon Go experience at the same time by visiting the many Pokéstops and Gyms in the area, often housed in the area’s most interesting attractions and gorgeous parks. Read on to find out where to go for the best Pokémon hunting, and even where to go afterwards!


Branson’s Best Places to Play Pokémon Go

Below, we’ve compiled a brief list of some of the most entertaining destinations for Pokémon hunting in Branson. We hope that you enjoy these locations and their incredible sightseeing opportunities as much as we do!


Tanger Outlets

There are several Poké-stops at Tanger Outlets, including stops at Shopper Services and at the lovely mural inside of the A&W Restaurant within the mall. Tanger Outlets also occasionally hosts Pokémon Go events, during which lure modules (which draw in Pokémon, often rarer than the usual Pokémon that appear) are placed and event attendees can receive complimentary coupon books for the stores nearby.

After your hunting excursion, you can stop (or stay, if you’re already at the Pokéstop there) at A&W for a refreshing soda, Harry & David for a warm, flaky pastry and other gourmet samplings, or King Subs & Deli for a tasty craft sandwich. For a sweet treat, make sure you visit The Fudgery and try their diverse selection of fudges and desserts.


Branson Landing

A popular destination for Pokémon hunting, Branson Landing has a number of Pokéstops, as well as nearby entertainment and dining options. Being right on the shore of Lake Taneycomo, Branson Landing is an ideal location for catching water-type Pokémon, like adorable fish Pokémon Magikarp, who can evolve into the mighty dragon Pokémon Gyarados once you’ve caught enough Magikarp to earn the right amount of candy and stardust. A group of local Pokémon Go players meets here nightly, and all-inclusive events are held on a regular basis.

When you’re finished catching Pokémon for the time being, grab a bite to eat at Big Whiskey’s American Restaurant & Bar, Black Oak Grill, or White River Fish House. You can even have a great cocktail or brew at Clear, Ernie Biggs Dueling Piano Bar & Grille, or Waxy O’Shea’s Irish Pub. Be sure to check out the spectacular fountain show while you’re in the area, which features water features set to music, lights, movement, and fire!


Titanic Museum

Another popular locale for Pokémon Go players, the Titanic Museum is not only a gym where you can earn experience points for leveling-up and coins for placing your Pokémon in the gym when you defeat it, but it’s also the sight of a multitude of fun Pokémon Go events. During these special events, players can search for Pokémon inside of the museum, attending the attraction for a discounted rate.

For your post-Pokémon hunt fun, check out the Titanic Museum itself, as well as the new nearby rides at Bigfoot on the Strip! Bigfoot on the Strip will also have a food court full of high-quality, gourmet food trucks that might not otherwise be accessible in Branson.
