There is something about being in the Ozark Mountains during the Fall.  Luckily,  when you are visiting Branson during this time of year you not only get to enjoy the beautiful fall foliage, you will have some serious fun while you’re at it.

Whether you are travelling as a couple or a family with children, there is something for everyone to enjoy during this season.  Just to give you some ideas, Silver Dollar City offers “National Harvest and Cowboy Festival”, ride on the Branson Scenic Railway , or view the fall scenery as you enjoy a ride at Branson Zipline and Canopy Tours at Wolfe Creek Preserve.  Oh, who are we kidding…do it all!

At Silver Dollar City’s, National Harvest and Cowboy Festival you can expect to find over 125 demonstrating craftsmen, barn dances, Western music performances, special Wild West Shows, and of course delicious food.  While you are visiting the park be sure to check out the all new Fireman’s Landing where you will find 10 new family adventure rides.  This festival runs from September until October 31.

Departing from Downtown Branson, the Branson Scenic Railway will take you on an hour and 45 minute journey into northwest Arkansas and back again.  This is an optimal way to experience the Ozark Mountains and scenery in the fall.

If you have never experienced the thrill of zip-lining this is the perfect time to do so.  What better way to take in the Ozark Mountain beauty that soaring through it?  Branson Zipline offers several different zipline and canopy ranging in time and intensity.  For the less thrill seeking person, take the Wolfe Creek Photo Safari where you can still enjoy all the beauty of the preserve at a calmer pace.

Those are just some suggestions.  With the countless trails and beautiful lakes surrounding the area, you will not be disappointed.  Whatever you you choose to do in Branson this time of year, you are sure to have a great time.  Start planning and have fun!
