So Much to Do in Branson

It sounds like there is something going on in Branson all the time. I'm not talking about the music shows, though up until recently I thought that was all Branson had to offer. Sure, there are music shows, and there are amusement parks, golf courses, and museums, too. There are special events going on all the time, too, like the Great American Pie Show contest I mentioned a while back and this past weekend's Young Christian's Weekend.

For all these special events and weekends, there's no better place to stay than the Hilton Promenade at Branson Landing or the HIlton Branson Convention Center Hotel. Both hotels are within easy driving distance of all the attractions in Branson, and they offer great package deals. For instance, rates started at $179/night for the Young Christian's weekend, and that was for a family of 4 and included passes to Silver Dollar City. Some other Hilton packages are a shopping package that includes accommodations, a breakfast buffet, and a gift card that can be used anywhere in Branson, and a golf package that includes accommodations and a round of golf on Branson's newest golf course. I'm pretty sure that's the package Jeffrey would like. When they say a round of golf for two, does that mean two people have to play at the same time, or can he play twice?

The only problem with that golf package is I don't know what I would do while he's playing golf. I know there's lots to do in Branson, but I don't really want to do it by myself. Oh, never mind - Misty lives somewhere not so far from Branson. While Jeffrey's playing golf, I want to hang out with my friend Misty. Together, we're sure to find something fun to do.
