The hustle and bustle of Christmas Day are over, and your “battery” is just about out of “juice.” How about a “recharge” with a break in Branson, Missouri? I am always amazed when someone says, “There’s not much to do in Branson during the week between Christmas and New Year’s Day.” That’s not the case at all; there are tons of things to do!
Although some of Branson’s shows are closed, many of its most popular shows will be open through Christmas week. Weather dependent attractions such as White Water are closed. Still, the vast majority of Branson’s attractions, activities, and world-class shopping are.
Here are five great reasons for families to take a break, relax, and have fun in Branson during Christmas Week:
1. Branson Shows: The range of live shows open during Christmas week offers magic, thundering horses, dinner shows, a biblical spectacular, dinner cruises, performing legends, amazing pets, and music shows covering just about every genre of music.
