Our Christmases can get more than a little hectic when you factor in cleaning, cooking, shopping, and dealing with cranky relatives, so this year we think you should reignite the spirit of Christmas with a holiday visit to Branson, and a stay in one of our festive Sunset Nightly Rentals winter escapes is the perfect way to do so! Spend your time and money the way you want: taking walks in the cold, sleeping late every day, and NOT laughing at the same lame dad jokes told year after year after year. Our guide to Branson Christmas 2019 will ensure that this holiday will be one you will never forget!


 Splurge for the Fireplace 

At any other time of the year, it doesn’t really matter if your rental comes with a fireplace or not, but at Christmas the fireplace is the heart of the home, and this is where you will gather round to tell Christmas stories, take a nap in front of on chilly days, and of course, hang the stockings on Christmas Eve. Opening presents on Christmas morn in front of a roaring fire is something everyone should experience at least once! And because those fireplaces are located in homes decorated with warmth and style, your Christmas is guaranteed to be an extra-special occasion!


Stay for the Branson Christmas Fun

Keeping the spirit alive outside the boundaries of your Christmas cabin is simple in Branson. Our town offers the comfort of an old-fashioned holiday in a million ways, but there’s one experience that is sure to be a hit with your children. Meeting Santa is the highlight of every young child’s life, and the North Pole Adventure at Shepherd of the Hills gives the smaller travelers the thrill of a lifetime! Santa resides at the top of a 200-foot tower overlooking our scenic town, offering the tallest Santa Claus visit in the nation, but there is so much more to this scintillating adventure! Watch the elves prepare for their favorite day in the Wishlist Workshop and see how they take care of the reindeer in the Stardust Stables. Find your way through the Tree Top Lot-A-Maze-ing Fun and pick up a few gifts for the good boys and girls in your life in this exciting Christmas adventure. This adventure begins November 1st and lasts through December 30th, giving visitors plenty of opportunities to play!


Zoo Lights, Polar Express, and An Old Time Christmas

The town of Branson is obviously a second home for the jolly old elf, and your visit during a Branson Christmas can only be topped with a stay in one of our Sunset Nightly Rentals holiday getaways; reserve yours today!

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!

As Thanksgiving approaches, you may find yourself dreading your normal routine. As much as you love your friends and family that visit each year, sometimes the thought of all the work involved in hosting Thanksgiving can make you want to run away and hide for the holiday. So why not do it? Branson is stunning this time of year, and our Branson rental homes offer a unique opportunity to celebrate a holiday that you will truly be thankful for! We have created this list of  activities that are guaranteed to make this Thanksgiving in Branson one you won’t soon forget!


Watch the Parade in Your Pajamas

Can you remember the last time you were able to sit down with a cup of coffee and a warm blanket and watch the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade from start to finish without having to check the progress on your turkey? This Thanksgiving is all about relaxation, and our televisions are large, flat-screened, and can make you feel as if you have front row seats in New York City!


Eat Food Prepared by Others

And thoroughly spoil yourselves! Who says the Thanksgiving feast has to be about turkey? Level 2 Steakhouse is offering a family style meal served to you at your table (Mom’s, isn’t THAT a wonderful thought?!) featuring your choice of smoked pork loin with a red onion marmalade or citrus brine roasted turkey along with a host of side dishes and two different desserts. Arnie’s Barn at Top of the Rock will be serving up a special Thanksgiving buffet that includes chicken, salmon, and short ribs (turkey too!), and Buckingham’s Restaurant is preparing its own special Thanksgiving brunch. Your choices are as endless as the smiles on your own face as you celebrate this holiday in style!


Do Whatever You Want

It’s not often you get to spend your gobble day doing what you want, so we suggest you take advantage of it! Feel like watching wonderful Branson shows all day long? Begin your turkey day with matinee shows of the Amazing Acrobats of Shanghai and the adorable Grand Country’s Amazing Pets, follow it up with a dinner show of Dixie’s Stampede Christmas (More food? We couldn’t possibly…well, ok, it IS a holiday, after all!), and finish up your feast of fabulousness with another ode to the upcoming holiday, the Andy Williams Christmas Extravaganza show at 8:00 PM. This Thanksgiving in Branson promises to be the best one ever!
