Silver Dollar City Branson, Missouri
When vacationing in Missouri there is one place I always want to go, Silver Dollar City. Located in Branson, Missouri Silver Dollar city http://www.bransonsilverdollarcity.com is an awesome amusement park.
This place is so much fun, it has rides and shows, shopping and demonstrations. There are plenty of restaurants to get a bite to eat when all the running around makes you hungry.
I remember the first time I went here I was a little kid visiting my mom. We went to a show that had a family playing the violin. Doesn't sound to exciting does it, but it was. The whole family played even the tiniest little boy. It was a great show and we all enjoyed it.
This place has stuff for all age groups. You can even stay there, which I strongly recommend because you just can't see everything in one day. There is water rides that boast you'll be soaked, and you will! For that middle of the day break when everyone starts to get tired take the train ride. There is a 20 minute train ride which takes you on a scenic tour and it is worth it. It goes through gorgeous country side, but don't fall asleep because there are a few surprises on this train.
Basically it is a great place to take your family. There is something for everyone and you will want to return again next time you are in the area. I still have a picture of us all that I love so much.
It may sound silly but as a kid a giant chair is awesome. This thing must have been 20 feet tall, it was great. There are lots of things like this to just take a great family picture. The first time I went I was nine and I still love going.
