Branson Trip Report
After four relaxing, fun-filled days in Branson, MO, it was hard for our group of 42 to come home! We saw six fantastic shows, ate to our heart’s content, and had fun competing in games and bingo on the coach.
Our first night, we enjoyed a four-course feast at Dolly Parton’s Dixie Stampede as we were treated to beautiful choreography featuring horses, ice skaters, music, and the story of Christmas. Each morning we rose early to eat a “Grand Country Buffet Breakfast.” The buffet offered made-to-order omelets, a waffle and French toast bar, and just about any other breakfast food you could imagine.
On our second day, we kicked off the morning with some inspirational music from AYO – Voices of Glory. The afternoon featured an M-Club favorite… The Texas Tenors. They got us in the Christmas spirit, and we all enjoyed their beautiful tribute to our veterans. In the evening, we were blown away by The Miracle of Christmas at the Sight and Sound Theater. The performance took place on a stage that wrapped around the whole theater and featured live animals, intricate sets, and live music.
On our final day, we had some time to ourselves in the morning. Some of us chose to go shopping, while others saw shows on their own, rested, or even went go-cart racing! In the afternoon we saw The Acrobats of China which featured breathtaking dances and stunts. For dinner, we enjoyed our favorite meal of the trip at Uptown Café where we chose between jumbo shrimp, prime rib, and Hawaiian chicken. We rounded out our Branson trip with some classic rock n’ roll music at the Million Dollar Quartet. It told the story of the epic jam session between Johnny Cash, Elvis Presley, Jerry Lee Lewis, and Carl Perkins at Sun Record Studios.
