Weekend trip to Branson
If you live in the Midwest, a trip to Branson, Missouri is a must. Marty and I went toBranson with my parents this May and found some new places we would like to take our kids.
Driving South from Kansas City, you have to stop at the Osceolacheese factory on Highway 13 in Osceola, Mo. As the name indicates, they have cheese, cheese and more cheese and theyhave samples of every kind they make. They also have really good ice cream. http://www.osceolacheese.com/ Couldn't resist the hoakie picture taken by my hubby of me above.
We stayed at The Thousand Hills Golf Resort. They have condos and cabins. http://www.thousandhills.com/ We stayed in a two bedroom condo andwere very comfortable. Once we checkedin and got settled, we went to Landry’s and had seafood for dinner. This was a view seen from our patio table.
Marty had crab legs and the rest of us hadfish and we all split a Banana’s Foster. Mom said she needed to try one since that is her maiden name.
Saturday morning we got up and got ready and went tobreakfast at Chateau on the Lake pictured above. They have an incredible brunch with a beautiful lake view.
Thenwe went out to the Wilderness Club to check it out. It is a really neat place and we aredefinitely going to take all the kids there for a vacation. They have a lazy river, horseback riding,pools, volleyball, shuffle board, paddle boats, and more.
Saturday evening we went to the Branson Landon for someshopping and ate dinner at Bass Pro’s seafood restaurant. This time we opted for fried seafood. I had the fried catfish dinner and Mom, Dadand Marty had the fish and chips.
Sunday morning we had an excellent brunch at the WormanHouse at the Wilderness Club. It wasexcellent. They had everything you couldimagine on the buffet, live entertainment and another great view of the lake.
Branson has so much more to offer. If you haven't been you should go.
