Branson Landing#2 in Best Things To Do in Branson
Branson Landing is an outdoor shopping, dining and entertainment center located along a 1.5-mile stretch of Lake Taneycomo. Along with shops and restaurants, the area also boasts a lakeside boardwalk and a series of water fountains set to lights, fire and music (the feature was designed by the same company responsible for the fountains at the Bellagio in Las Vegas).
Recent travelers enjoyed shopping at the more than 100 storefronts in the center, as well as eating at its restaurants, including Cantina Laredo and White River Fish House. More adventurous visitors highly recommended Parakeet Pete's Waterfront Zipline, which allows visitors to zip line across the lake.
Branson Landing is adjacent to the Branson Convention Center and the Branson Scenic Railway. Regular hours of operation are from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m., but closing times vary by the season and day. Although it's free to window-shop and stroll along the boardwalk, eating out, shopping and participating in activities will cost you. Depending on where you leave your car, you may also have to pay for parking. For more information, visit Branson Landing's website.
