Branson: isn’t that a pretty pickle?

By | August 28, 2008

In Britain, the name Branson conjures up Virgin records, etc… but it seems that this isn’t the only Branson in the holiday business… It seems that there’s a company called Branson Getaways that offers a variety of packages for visits to Branson, Missouri! Where? Branson, Missouri!

Well it seems Branson is quite the entertainment city… Wikipedia lists over ” … 100 live shows in over 50 theaters, several museums, three lakes, and 12 championship golf courses. Other local attractions include Silver Dollar City, Celebration City, White Water, Dolly Parton’s Dixie Stampede, an IMAX Theater, The Shepherd of the Hills, Stone Hill Winery, Ride The Ducks, and Branson Landing.” I was quite surprised: it’s only a small town of 6,700 and yet boasts even more golf courses than my Alma Mater, St. Andrews in Scotland does.

I must admit I’d lean towards the GREAT AMERICAN PACKAGE, the food itself would be worth the expense, and listening to a concert would be fine. I’m not much into Country music, but hey, I can learn to like it! I’d also go to the Titanic museum in a heartbeat!

4 Days/3 Nights Welk Resort Hotel
2 adult tickets to:
Magnificent Seven with Dinner
Legends in Concert
Veteran’s Museum
All for only:
$594 (about NT$ 18,000)
Total Cost Per Couple.

I’m attracted by the food, for me that’s always the catch! And it’s 3 nights in the hotel. I just wonder what kind of hotel it is… I’m pretty fussy about that kind of thing… I believe the hotel should be as memorable as the trip itself! And I wish the siteowners would update the Calendar of Events, everything’s already passed.
