And do it now!
Why haven't you been to Branson yet? Do you have something against fun, excitement, entertainment, low prices, and quality accommodations? No, of course you don't -- you like those things, and you can get them all in Branson.
Here's just one example of how you can do that. Let's say you head down to Branson the weekend of March 27-29, 2009. You'll arrive there and check into the Hilton Branson Convention Center Hotel, that luxury hotel that will pamper you in style with big rooms, great views, and the fact that it's close to everything you want to do -- a hotel that is matched in its quality only by the nearby Hilton Promenade at Branson Landing.
Once checked in, you'll have to overcome the urge to simply relax in your glorious hotel room and enjoy the palatial surroundings, and instead will likely find yourself hearing over to enjoy the Young Christian's Weekend at Silver Dollar City -- concerts from Christian groups like DownHere! and Kutlass, worships, and great speakers like Joe White.
You won't get tired of that -- but if you want a change of pace, you'll take a break from that celebration and check out the river walk near your hotel -- or you'll go shopping at one of the dozens of shops and boutiques within a stone's throw of the hotel. Once you're shopped out, before heading back to the Fest, maybe take in one of the shows Branson is world-renowned for -- or see how the kids are doing at the amusement parks with their thrill rides.
Then it's dinner at one of the great restaurants they've got -- and an early bedtime, because you're teeing off early on one of the championship golf courses Branson features.
I didn't even mention the international folk music and food at World-Fest. And the Branson Air Show kicking off this year. Or the Great American Pie Show.
You'd better book a second weekend.
