I will be traveling in the near future to Branson, Missouri and I am wondering if anyone has any suggestions for places to visit in the area. We will be attending maybe one or two shows, however we would like to sight see popular places or eateries along the way. Thank you for whatever suggestions you might have.

Do not miss, Ripleys Believe It Or Not and the Wax Museum. They are both fantastic and well worth the time and money! I loved them both when my parents took me.
I also loved the Shoneys Buffet!
Have a great time. It's a real treat to visit.

For places to eat you might try Lamberts, it is in Ozark on the East side of Hwy 65 South headed to Branson, not sure of the exit though. Their food is excellent and you get so much. A waitress goes around with buckets of side dishes for free.
Make sure you go to Dick's 5 & 10 store, it has everything, I love it. Also The Landing is awesome, at Noon they play the National Anthem with fountains dancing to the music, have fun.
Lamberts is located on Highway CC off Highway 65 just a bit north of Ozark. Be sure and plan for a wait, but it is worth it. And Dick's 5 & 10 is definitely a must. It is a trip to yesteryear. It is downtown, not on the strip. The Landing is not far away.
If you can, Ride the Ducks, it is an interesting ride from land to water on Ducks, the Duck is an actual vehicle is based on the famous World War II DUKW amphibious design.
Of course, there are the many Branson shows and Silver Dollar City. You might take a tour through College of the Ozarks, a college with no tuition - students work their way through with jobs at the college. Dogwood Canyon Nature Park is near and if you're coming from the north an awesome stopover is Ha Ha Tonka State Park, home of an old burned-down castle sitting on a bluff overlooking Lake of the Ozarks. It is located located near Camdenton on the Niangua arm of the Lake of the Ozarks. It is picture perfect, a great way to spend a couple of hours.
In Springfield - about 30-40 miles north of Branson, is Bass Pro Shop on Campbell Avenue.
Thanks to all who had input on our pending trip to Branson.
Try the "Shephard of the Hills" play, the Titanic Museum, Silver Dollar City (this can take a full day and maybe even the night for a show), the shopping (three outlet malls), Dixie Stampede, the IMAX (great for the hot part of the day). So much to see and never enough time. Hope you have a terrific visit.
