The Strip



This is what modern-day Branson is all about. Crammed into this seven-mile stretch of Missouri State Highway 76 are 60-plus restaurants, 70-plus hotels and motels, and more than 30 live entertainment venues, along with dozens of shopping outlets and amusement parks. This area offers a wealth of live music, food and activities. Traveling treasure hunters—mostly retirees and families—jam all four lanes of this road from April through September. Traffic moves at a snail's pace here on most summer afternoons; if you choose to drive, chances are you will see plenty of pedestrians merrily wave and pass by as you remain stuck in your-air conditioned vehicle. Do not despair. With a little planning, you can book a centrally located hotel and avoid the gridlock. The Boxcar Willie Hotel, on the western reaches of The Strip, is within walking distance of a 90-store outlet mall plus several museums, nine theaters, go-cart tracks, amusement parks and a dozen or so restaurants. You could spend a week taking in these attractions and never have to start your car. After a day running rapids and riding waterslides at White Water Amusement Park, you can feast on Branson's top-rated buffet at the Plantation Restaurant, then end your day with a Sons of the Pioneers show at Mickey Gilley Theatre—all without walking more than a few hundred paces in any direction. The entire length of The Strip offers this sort of luxury, and as you scoot along the sidewalks and wave at static motorists, you will soon discover why those cheerful pedestrians were smiling as you sat in traffic only a few hours before.
