Recently voted Best Value City in America, Branson, Missouri is rapidly becoming a premier vacation destination, both for the very young and the very old, and we welcome the attention!  You won’t break your bank when vacationing here; there are nightly rentals that are reasonably priced while still offering elegance, hominess and luxurious amenities, leaving you with plenty of green left in your wallet for shows, shopping, and souvenirs! Our small town with the heart of a big city offers breathtaking scenery with the Ozark Mountains standing majestically in the background, ablaze with fiery hues of red, gold, and orange in the fall, cool and velvety green in the summer and spring, and a crisp bright white in the winter when a blanket of snow covers everything in its path. 

Hobnob with celebrities

First and foremost, Branson is known for its shows; large extravaganzas boasting glitzy A List Celebrities including Dolly Parton, Wayne Newton, Kenny Rogers, and even Elvis back in the day.  Today it’s possible to watch a big show with your favorite performer at night, and then quite possibly run into the same star at the grocery store the next day, as many celebrities consider Branson their home base.  Country Music Hall of Famers, The Oak Ridge Boys, are proud Branson residents and are still performing with the original four members after over 40 years in the “biz”.  Watching them perform their hit Elvira will have you singing and dancing in your seats!   Another Branson favorite is Barry Williams - yes, Greg from the Brady Bunch - sing popular hits from the 70s, and he has been known to dance along as well.  Tribute shows are popular as well; where else will you get the chance to relive performances by Elvis, the Beatles or even John Denver?  Branson, Missouri truly lives up to its title of the Live Show Capital of the World!

Family Attractions

More than just live shows, however, Branson is home to the world renowned Silver Dollar City theme park, a 100-acre Western themed celebration of the Old West.  In addition to the normal rides, shows, and shops, at Christmas it becomes a magical display of over 5 million lights and 1000 fully decorated Christmas trees.  A visit to Silver Dollar City also includes a 1-hour tour of Marvel Cave; make sure you have your walking shoes on, there are hundreds of steps in this gorgeous limestone cave! The Showboat Branson Belle is a paddle wheeler riverboat that offers lunch and dinner cruises with the best of cruise ship entertainment.  What’s more romantic than a dinner cruise that serves delicious prime rib?

Branson is all that

And so much more!  Restaurants serving fine seafood neighbor with down home country restaurants serving chicken pot pies; diners with singing waiters compete with elegant Italian restaurants - whatever you’re craving, you will find it here.  Our Lake Taneycomo is more than just a pretty face; fountain shows start every day at noon, lasting long into the night.  And when your daily adventures end and it’s time to rest your head, Sunset Realty Services offer some of the most beautiful vacation home rentals in all of Missouri.  Isn’t it time to start planning your Branson Missouri vacation today?
