My family is considering going to Branson for the first time in July. I've been perusing the pkg deals at Grand Country Inn while really knowing nothing about the "resort". Does anyone have first hand experience? Honestly, any advice on a Branson family getaway would be welcome.

When I was married my family stayed there several times. Its been about 4 years but back then it was nice and very affordable. The kids loved the water park.

Branson has a lot to offer for family entertainment. I'm not sure about the resorts, though, since I only live 40 minutes away. I love Branson Landing for eating and shopping. It's a nice little area. Silver Dollar City and White Water will usually have combined park tickets. Both are fun. The Titanic Museum was pretty cool, too. There are shows for just about everyone. The Showboat Branson Belle might even have a package deal with the parks, since I believe they're owned by the same people. Dolly's Stampede is a little pricey for dinner. I've never actually been there, but I hear the show they put on makes it worth the price. And, of course, there are shows for just about every taste. Presley's is pretty funny. I also hear the wax museum is really cool, but it's one of the pricier things, so I haven't been there either. Ripley's Believe It or Not was cool.

Have stayed there several times with the kids. The Water Park is cool. I enjoyed the Lazy River the most. Of course there is a restaurant and gameroom on site. There are also a couple of small pool and hot tub buildings next to the rooms. The location is pretty good.

Whatever you do....DONT LOOK AT THE BILLBOARDS ON YOUR WAY IN.

They will shake you to your core.

I've stayed there the last couple years. Good place to stay. My son loved it. The rooms are motel 6ish, but it does have a little water park, restaurant, mingolf, gameroom etc. If you have kids they'll love it.

Driving in Branson is a pain in the ass other than that its pretty cool.
Took the kid horse back riding down there 2 weeks ago. This lil jem of a house sits on the property & is a historical land mark or so the say.

Gokarts & the wooden track & towers you race up & down on were a lot of fun to.

That's Flopnuts house. His weight is just too much for the place.

I live in Branson, and I would consider the Grand Country Inn average at best. My recommendation would be to stay somewhere else nicer and go to White Water or Moonshine Beach on Table Rock. The Grand Country Inn will be fine, just remember you aren't paying for a nice room.

Payne Stewart Golf Course or Branson Creek Golf Course...best 2 courses in Branson.
Chateau on the Lake nicest resort with Marina and lake access.

If you have children, the Country Inn, (I think that is the one with all the water stuff for kids to do is supposed to be good...for kids)

I haven't been back there in 10 years. Too old people and kids for me. We use to go down there over Thanksgiving day weekend and hit the outlet malls but haven't done that in about 7 years.

I live here, so if you have any questions hit me up.

How long have you lived there? Are you in entertainment? I worked in Branson for 15 years ('76 - '90) at SDC and Shepherd. Any chance I know you?
