Tax Free Weekend: Your Branson Shopping Guide

Greetings from the Ozarks! 

It is now August—where has the summer gone? We hope that you and your loved ones have been able to make the most of this summer! Here in Branson, we are preparing for Missouri’s Tax Free Weekend to take place this weekend, August 7-9. As we’re sure you know, Branson is full of great shopping opportunities; from one-of-a-kind boutiques and shops to outlets of all sorts, we’ve got everything you could need!

Here are just a few “must stop” shopping destinations in Branson for you and your family as the sun sets on summertime: 

The Shoppes at Branson Meadows 

Have you made your way to the Meadows yet? Branson Meadows Shoppes is a shopping center located on the west side of Branson that holds a wide variety of shopping opportunities. Some top stores to choose from include Made in the USA, Vanity Fair, Tuesday Morning, and Touch of Class Formals—but that’s not all! 

The Shoppes at Branson Meadows

In addition to all the great shopping to be found at the Meadows, you can head to the classic, 80s-themed arcade, 1984, for a blast back in time, or even try your hand at some axe throwing. Then stop to grab a bite to eat at the new Sips Bar and Grill. With fun for the whole family, you could easily spend hours at the Meadows!

The Grand Village Shops 

If you haven’t strolled through The Grand Village, you haven’t experienced Branson! Strolling through The Grand Village Shops might have you thinking you’ve accidentally made your way to the North Pole itself—well, without the snow and ice, of course.  

There, you will be immersed in Branson’s best Christmas shopping and so much more, with all sorts of unique items to be found nowhere else. Take a break from shopping to dine at Sugar Leaf Bakery and Café or Mel’s Hard Luck Diner! Your time at Grand Village will be time well spent! 

Tanger Outlets 

The well-known Tanger Outlets is home to outlet stores of all types! Whatever you are in need of for the upcoming fall season, you are sure to find it at Tanger—whether shopping for yourself or the kiddos. Stop in at Tanger Outlets to complete your tax free weekend shopping adventure! 

The Shoppes at Branson Hills and Branson Hills Plaza 

Have you been shopping at Branson Hills yet? There, you can find a wide variety of dining and shopping options! Home to Kohl’s, Books-A-Million, Michael’s Craft Store, Target, TJ Maxx, Home Depot, and much more, Branson Hills is a must-stop destination for you and your family this tax free weekend. 

If you’re feeling hungry after all your shopping, take your pick between Freddy’s, Arby’s, Wendy’s, Panda Express, Subway, Pizza Hut, and Chili’s!

The Branson Landing 

A well-known shopping and entertainment area for the whole family, the Branson Landing has a wide variety of shops to stop in. Apparel, health and beauty, jewelry, and gift stores can be found in the Landing’s shopping district. When you tire of shopping, there are numerous restaurants in which to satisfy your hunger, including our newest addition, Guy Fieri’s Branson Kitchen and Bar! Be sure to pause by the Landing’s fountain, where a light, fire, and music show plays every hour: view the schedule here! 

For this month only, we are offering 5% off on your August arrival to our lovely hometown! There is so much we want you to be able to experience during your Golden Hour Getaway to Branson, so don’t miss out! Located at the north end of the Branson Landing, we are ready to make your time in the Ozarks perfect.  

We look forward to welcoming you to Branson this weekend and always! We hope that as we enter the Golden Hour of summer you will join us in the Ozarks for fun, laughter, relaxation, and adventure. 

Until next time,
