Re: Branson, Missouri
Sorry, we didn't go to any of those shows. However we all really enjoyed Silver Dollar City. In addition, we ate most of our meals at our cabin, so I can't comment on the restaurants.
Ride the Ducks is a highly-recommended attraction. We planned on going but the wind was too strong when we were there, and they had to close down.
There's lots of mini-golf and go-cart tracks. They have a wax museum on the strip, and a butterfly garden/museum (?) next to the Lawrence Welk Theater. (We didn't do either, but they both looked like good bets.) The Kringles Christmas store was nice, it was next to the Grand Palace.
My main suggestion is to make sure you are hungry when you go to Silver Dollar City, I could have eaten there for a week! I thought they had excellent food selection for a theme park. Try to tour the cave while you're there, we missed it [img]/ubb/images/graemlins/frown.gif[/img] because of timing issues. The cost is included with your admission.
