Weekend Fun - Branson, Mo


Last weekend we spent some time away from good ol' STL and headed to Branson, MO. Neither I nor the kids had ever been to Silver Dollar City at Christmas time. (well, if I had I was a young child) 


There are over 6.5 million lights. I would totally be lying if I said I didn't tear up a few times from Christmas cheer. It's AMAZING!!! 


There is Christmas music playing ALL. DAY. LONG. #literllymyfav The train ride was Christmas themed and what for it....it was nativity themed. I mean I got off the train thinking there are actually still good people left in the world. Kidding...kind of. ;) 




We ate our meals at Wagon House grill, Percy's Southwest grill, and Crossroads Pizza. None of them were a disappointment...the food was GREAT! 


We looked at lights, watched the parade, and even a few shows. The kids played carnival games and won stuffed animals...!?!?!? Like we need another more stuffed animals right? 

We are a coaster loving family (I am getting a little slower in my old age) so we had to max out the time riding rides for sure...




I am so thankful we had the strollers because the park is practically 4 big hills. I got my steps in without question! We treat this park like Disney as far as carrying a backpack goes. Mark usually wears one during the day with everything we need. The stroller because somewhat of a shopping cart as well as something to push the kids in crowded areas, nighttime, and when we need to move quick. LOL! 



Another helpful tip for Silver Dollar City is download their app. We used it the entire time we are in the park. It's a great way to see what's going throughout that day as well as the days to come. It has hours of operation, times of shows, ride times, etc.
