Vacation in Branson is a time to get away from the struggles and realities of the daily grind.

3. Beautiful Lakes and Scenery

Lake Taneycomo

Branson is located right in the middle of the beautiful Ozark Mountains and is surrounded by three amazing lakes. Table Rock Lake boasts more coastline than the state of California with all it’s fingerling alcoves. It’s a great lake for fishing, but more importantly, boating and tubing. Families and anglers alike can enjoy not just one beautiful lake, but three! The river-like Taneycomo, ideal for kayaking and trout fishing in the cooler water and nearby Bull Shoals lake, a local favorite for swimming and tubing, are both popular options as well! In addition to the lakes, Branson is also home to many beautiful and challenging hiking trails that make it the ideal getaway for outdoorsy types.
