These are just two of the Top Attractions in Branson during Christmas, but trust that your visit to Branson will uncover so many more!
If you have visions of millions of Christmas lights and sounds of holiday cheer dancing through your head, that means one thing and one thing only…you need to take a trip to Branson, Missouri during Christmas. This town goes all out. Driving down the main strip in town, you’ll be amazed at how everything at night is just “lit” up by the beautiful Christmas lights and colors. If that isn’t enough, almost every show in time caters towards the holiday season as well putting on some of the most spectacular venues full of dancing and singing that you’ll seriously ever see.

Top Attractions in Branson at Christmas
Branson is one of those places where you couldn’t get bored even if you tried. There’s just too much to see and do. While I could seriously have a forever list about the top attractions at Branson, here are two that are an absolute must see, especially during the Holidays! If you are looking for a fun way to get your family excited about all the top attractions in Branson, here is a cute Word Search you can print out and take along.
Everyone knows the tragic story of the Titanic, but how much do you truly know? Once you enter the doors of the Titanic Museum in Branson, be prepared to take a tour through history with over 400 artifacts reminding and educating you about that day in 1912.
Before visiting the Titanic museum, most people get their information for second-hand sources and movies, but one trip here will change everything that you thought you knew.
Just when you think you’ve seen it all as you’re touring the museum, you can even take a walk down the replica of the Titanic’s Grand Staircase. The only difference is you don’t have to be dressed to the nine’s for the journey down the spiral stairs. (however, you can be if you want!)
One part of the Titanic museum to not miss is the sloping deck where you can feel what the passengers of the ship were feeling as the Titanic was being to sink. There’s no doubt that you’ll feel a rush of emotions during your trip and visit to the Titanic Museum.
Take your time going through to see all the displays and artifacts, valued at over $4.5 million dollars! Trust me on this one…this is one museum that you’ll never, ever forget.
Branson Ferris Wheel
One of my favorite views in Branson? The very top of the Branson Ferris Wheel. I think it’s a safe bet to say that it’s one of those views that you’ll never be able to forget. Once that Ferris Wheel stops at the top, take a look around and the rolling hills and countryside of Southern Missouri…During the fall and winter, there truly isn’t anything like it.
While you’re up there, look down…you’re really high up! In fact, you’re up over 150 feet in the air! Whew! Talk about a true picture perfect moment. If you’re like me, you could always take a really cool video of yourself while you’re going around and around…seriously, there’s no wrong way to ride the Branson Ferris Wheel. (as long as you’re following the rules, of course!)
Ridden by over 17 million people before making it’s way to the Branson strip, the seats are primed and ready for you and your family. The Branson Ferris Wheel can actually hold up to 240 passengers, so bring your family, your friends, your groups and anyone else who wants to have a true holiday experience at Branson. Of course, it is always more fun riding with friends.
My advice? Ride it twice. Buy a ticket for during the day for the view and then buy a ticket at night when it’s all lit up with 16,000 LED lights. While you may be riding the same Ferris wheel per se, it will feel like a completely different experience!
Branson tip? If you happen to be driving by the Ferris Wheel at night or sitting in your car in the parking lot, you can tune your radio to 90.9 and listen to the music to accompany the lights. It’s really, really cool.
