If this is your first time visiting Branson in the summer, it may not be the temperatures that get you, but the humidity that accompanies those 80 to 90 degree temps. Heavy humidity, thick air, and temperatures that can rise pretty high are all reasons you can’t afford to pass up reading this article about the best Branson attractions for keeping it cool during your once in a lifetime summer vacation!


Start and End your Day with a Swim

Many of our Branson Nightly Rentals homes come with a pool, and if you’ve never experienced the joy of an early morning swim under the dawn’s sky, or a night swim with the stars sparkling brightly above, THIS is the time to try!


Visit Marvel Cave

You can’t go wrong with a visit to Marvel Cave, located at Silver Dollar City, where the temperatures stay a chilly 50 to 60 degrees year-round! If you’re in good physical shape and don’t have any lung or heart conditions, your time spent underground exploring the marvels of Marvel Cave will most likely end up being the highlight of your trip!


Go to a Show

It’s what we’re known for here, and because the shows are held inside in air-conditioned coolness, you know you’re going to have a great time! Take in a magic show, a country music performance, or even a Murder Mystery Dinner Show—and don’t forget to bring a sweater! The air-conditioning can get a little chilly!


Visit the Titanic Museum

It’s impossible to feel hot when you’re standing in the iceberg room! Offering artifacts, exhibits, and a unique surprise at the end of your visit, the Titanic Museum is popular any time of the year, but in the summer, you can’t help but be grateful for that great big hunk of ice!


Stay Inside and Play

Our Sunset Nightly Rentals vacation homes are designed to make you feel at home. Why not take some time and enjoy them? Turn the air conditioner down low, the fans up high, and spend some quality time with your family binge watching Netflix and snacking on the popcorn you popped fresh in the fully equipped kitchen. As the sun begins to set over the horizon, you may want to pour yourself a frosty beverage and head out to the deck for the best show in town: a Missouri sunset on a warm summer night!

Be sure to check all the awesome things Branson has to offer for you and your family for your vacation experience!

When we think back to the summers of our youth, the one thing that always stands out the most in our minds is the big events shared with our families: our grandparent’s birthdays, family reunions, and milestone anniversaries. The cousins would run mild, playing tag and hide and go seek, the younger adults would turn up the music loud and do the hustle or whatever dance was popular at the time, and the older adults would sit in their chairs, drinking coffee or beer, and talk about how things were so much different when they were kids. Summer was all about the big group get together, and life was made all the better for it!

Today, it doesn’t happen as much, but we think it should and it can—especially when you rent one of our Sunset Nightly Rentals homes in Branson. Our 6 bedroom homes can sleep up to 22 people, allowing you and your family to have the destination family reunion of your dreams. Here are some ideas for things to do in Branson when you are all together!


The Track Family Fun Parks, 3388 Green Mountain Drive, Branson

Offering specials for groups of 20 or more, this fun park helps you and your family get in touch with your fast side. Featuring go karts that bring out the competitor in everyone, bumper boats for some cool summer fun, and even a 150-foot-tall Ferris wheel that gives you a birds-eye view of the beauty of Branson and the Ozarks, Track Family Fun Parks provides something for each member of your family!


Take a Hike

A variety of trails can be found throughout nearby Dogwood Canyon Nature Park, including simple strolls that give your group the opportunity to get out into the fresh air and challenging hikes that burn off all that excess energy the younger generation never seems to run out of. And because many of our cabins are pet friendly, this is one activity you can bring your precious pooch along as you try it; just remember to keep him on the leash!


Escape Code, 4560 Gretna Road, Branson

Escape Rooms are a big trend these days, and because Escape Code offers a deal for groups of 20 or more, this fun activity can test your ability to work together as a family while saving you money! Escape a storm, survive a murderous stint in a guest house, or seek your revenge against those who have wronged you; these are just a few of the escape rooms you can explore. Kids 10 and older can participate in some of the rooms, so it’s a kid friendly romp as well!
