BRANSON, Mo., August 30, 2012 — “Branson is blessed in that the majority of its attractions and shows are not weather dependent,” said Tammy Johnson, the Director of Operations for the Branson Tourism Center. “Heat, cold, snow, rain or sun, there is always fun to be had in Branson,” she continued.
The forecast rain from “Hurricane Isaac” scheduled to impact the Branson area, primarily on Friday, with some lingering showers on Saturday, will definitely impact outdoor related activities such as golf, lake activities and certain outdoor attractions. Johnson points out that regardless of the weather there is always something that’s exciting and fun to do in Branson.
The majority of Bransons attraction’s are open regardless of the weather. Take a voyage aboard the Titanic Museum Attraction, visit the Hollywood Wax Museum, Ripley’s Believe It or Not, or the Butterfly Palace & Rainforest Adventure. How about visiting the “Smithsonian of the Ozarks,” the “Ralph Foster Museum” at the College of the Ozarks, indoor miniature golf at Grand Country or one of the many other fun filled non weather dependent activities Branson offers?
With the exception of the Shepherd of the Hills Outdoor Drama, Branson’s full slate of outstanding and entertaining live shows is not weather dependent. With Branson shows covering the gamut from Presleys’ Country Jubilee, Yakov Smirnoff, Jim Stafford, Shoji Tabuchi, Rankin Brothers, Clay Cooper Country Express, Duttons, Acrobats of China, Legend of Kung Fu, Dixie Stampede, Yakov’s Dinner Adventure, SIX, Pierce Arrow, George Dyer, Dixie Stampede, the Haygoods, Showboat Branson Belle, Todd Oliver and Friends, Hamner and Barber Variety Show and dozens of other there is a show available for every entertainment interest.
Although weather certainly has some impact on shopping, as is the case with its attractions and shows, the vast majority of Branson’s famous shopping is not weather dependent and is open “rain or shine” year round.
