Coming from a bigger family, and an even bigger extended family it can be difficult to find something everyone likes to do. Thankfully, Branson is a family friendly town, and the downtown part happens to be one of our favorites.
Historic Downtown Branson is full of locally owned shops and restaurants. Some of them have been here for years and years. There are 3 that are must see's, the first being Main St Flea Market. Full of local treasures you can find great antique's or vintage items here. Next is Dick's 5 and 10, which is my personal favorite place to get gift's for that person who seems to have everything. My little cousins seem to love it too because there are tons of toys! Most of which you can't get at other Toy Stores. After you've shopped to your hearts content then stop by Mr. B's Ice Cream! Themed with the 50's decor it is a fun place with delicious ice cream!
Now if that doesn't sound exciting enough, the Branson Landing is at the end of downtown! Filled with more modern shops and restaurants this is a huge hit with the teenagers and college students of the area. (Locals Tip: if they start to get tired or annoying there are 3 coffee shops right there!) The Branson Landing sits right on Lake Taneycomo and has beautiful walking trails all around it so you can enjoy shopping and scenery.
So if you are young, or formerly young, check this place out, I promise you won't regret it!
