We have been planning our trip to Branson, MO for weeks now; Munchkin has had her bag packed since the first of March and she packed one for little man too. We plan to stay at the Colonial Mountain Inn in Branson West. We love that it is American Owned and Operated, there is a swimming pool with a slide (when the weather is warm enough), the prices are reasonable, and it's right up the road from Silver Dollar City. We have always had clean rooms and friendly service when we visit. To top it off, the hotel is beside a Taco Bell, so when we come in late from the park, we can get our late-night taco fix with a couple of Doritos tacos and a large Mountain Dew.
Spring Break Days is an excellent time to visit Silver Dollar City; the weather is usually nice, and the crowds aren't as big as they are in the summer. Even if you have to wait until summer to visit, Silver Dollar City has mature shade trees growing throughout the park so, even on hot days, you can usually find a cool place to sit. During the hottest hours of the day, I love to visit Marvel Cave, where the temperature stays cool year round. If spelunking isn't your thing, there are loads of air-conditioned shops too, so you can watch glass-blowers at work, or peanut brittle being made, or just search for the perfect souvenir. With package pick-up services, you won't even have to lug your purchases with you to the Great American Country Nights show in Echo Hollow. Just pick them up on your way out.
Whether you visit for the rides and attractions, the toe-tapping shows, perusing the shops, watching the craftsmen at work, the excellent food, or the one-of-a-kind festivals, Silver Dollar City has something for everyone. I hope your family loves it as much as mine does.
