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.


Live Shows During Your Branson Christmas

Branson is renowned for its fabulous entertainment, from 1950s tributes to modern country. Acrobats of China, Hughes Brothers’ Christmas Show, Sanders’ Family Christmas, and other shows are playing around Branson this holiday season. So, whether you want dance, comedy, song, theatre, or some combinations of the four, you’re sure to find a great evening’s entertainment!

Christmas in Branson, Missouri may not be how you would normally consider spending your Christmas vacation, but we think it should be.  Cool winter nights spent partaking in traditional Christmas activities will become a unique adventure when you spend those nights in a cozy cabin with lake views, a fireplace, and sparkling lights on a Christmas tree.  An Ozark Mountain Christmas is a special one that everyone should be able to experience at least once in their lifetimes!  Below is a list of Christmas time activities guaranteed to delight all members of your family!


Take in a show

Branson is known as the Live Music Capital of the World, so it only seems right to spend some of your vacation watching Christmas themed musical acts!  Billy Dean’s “Let them be little” Christmas is a show your entire family will enjoy…and don’t be surprised when you find yourself humming his songs hours later. Voted Branson’s best Christmas show 7 years in a row, you will experience a Christmas wonderland in the Hughes Brothers Christmas Show.  And prepare to be dazzled by Christmas Wonderland and its magical sleigh ride of singing and dancing elves.  Branson does Christmas right.


All Aboard!

Starting weekends in November, The Branson Scenic Railway becomes Santa’s Polar Express!  Christmas Carolers sing as Santa moves throughout the cabins, passing out a special gift for children who believe.  This magical expedition lasts an hour and 15 minutes – and the memories will last a lifetime.


The Adoration Celebration

Branson does Christmas in a big way…and the 28 foot high Nativity Scene located high atop Mount Branson has its lighting ceremony, followed by a parade through town, the first Sunday in December.  Celebrate the true meaning of Christmas as we have year after year since 1949.  It’s a moving experience.


Silver Dollar City’s AMAZING Light Show

Featuring 5 million lights, 1000 Christmas trees (including a five story high talking one!) only a Scrooge could visit this amusement park without feeling the Christmas spirit!  Kids of all ages will ooh and ah over this breathtaking seasonal extravaganza!  Feast on prime rib in the reunion hall or just wander the streets of Silver Dollar City while humming Christmas songs.  Bring your camera, this show deserves to be immortalized on film!
