Springtime in Branson is one of the most glorious times of the year, and one of the most popular times to visit. Milder temperatures, budding trees, and the colorful beauty of spring flowers pushing their way up through the dark soil of the Ozarks make the landscape appear even more postcard perfect than normal. And after being cooped up inside during the long and snowy winter, spring is also a time we want to get outdoors and play! If you’re visiting during the spring, we’ve compiled this list of the top five spring outdoor activities in Branson to keep you on the go while you’re playing outside!


Take a Walk

Whether you are hiking along paths through Dogwood Canyon or simply walking down the streets of the Strip, just being outside on a glorious spring day can be all the entertainment you need! Enjoy the sounds of nature as the migrating birds return home to roost in their Ozark trees, or the sound of music echoing from behind the doors of the theaters on Highway 76; springtime in Branson is simply amazing and doesn’t have to cost a thing!


Fly Above the Trees

The Vigilante Extreme ZipRider offers an exhilarating zip line experience you just can’t find anywhere else! Lasting over half a mile and reaching speeds of up to 50 miles an hour, the breathtaking views of Branson from over 170 feet up in the air will most likely be the highlight of your entire vacation. And costing only $29 per rider, this zipline ride will be an inexpensive adventure as well!


Silver Dollar City

Nothing says spring more than a roller coaster ride, and the Time Traveler, Silver Dollar City’s newest roller coaster, is scheduled to open this spring! Spin, dive, roll, and speed through time on the fastest, steepest, and tallest spinning coaster in the world. Tickets to Silver Dollar City start at $54 for children and include all the rides you can ride!


Go Fishing

With three major lakes and multiple streams, brooks, and rivers running through it, Branson in the spring is a fisherman’s favorite place! Fishing licenses cost $7 a day, and fishing equipment can be rented at most outdoor stores, including Lilley’s Landing Marina located at 367 River’s Lane in Branson.


Watching the Sun Set Over the Ozarks

Sometimes it’s the smallest things that can make your family vacation the one you remember the most over the years, and sitting on the back porch of your Sunset Nightly Rentals cozy cabin  watching the sunset can be the highlight of an already perfect vacation. Pour a glass of wine from the bottle you bought during your tour of the Mount Pleasant Winery, sit back, and prepare for Branson’s best show! Reserve yours today and discover your newest happy place!
