Slotsholman

This is where it all began in the 11th century, when Bishop Absalon built a castle here (you can still see its remains), which stood until 1794, when it burned down. The present Neo-Baroque castle was built in 1907-28, but was never inhabited by the monarch. It now houses the Parliament. It is truly a site worth seeing.

Christmas at Branson – Now That’s A Vacation!

Posted in Branson Vacation with tags on October 2, 2008 by luckytraveler

This year marks the 20th Ozark Mountain Christmas! From November 1st through December 31st. Visitors to Branson will enjoy Christmas-themed, star-studded productions, millions of beautiful holiday lights, boutique shopping, outdoor events and attractions, and warm Ozarks hospitality.

Holiday shows include live entertainment from famous performers, such as Andy Williams, Mickey Gilley, Joey Riley, Jim Stafford and Yakov Smirnoff to name a few. The carols and hymns, old and new, will put you in the holiday spirit. As a special treat, Mannheim Steamroller and Broadway’s Spirit of Christmas have been added to years show line-up.

The Branson Area Festival of Lights will keep you “oohing” and “aahing” as you drive through their incredible light displays. While you’re there, don’t forget to visit The Shepherd of the Hills – Trail of Lights. This is truly a magical Christmas Wonderland, and it ends at Inspiration Tower. Climb to the top and have a look around (or take the elevator, but only if you must). From the top, you’ll see all of Branson “lit up like one big Christmas tree.”

Silver Dollar City becomes a holiday paradise with special shows in the theaters throughout the park, as well as strolling carolers dressed in their period costumes. The smell of hot cider and roasted nuts wafting through the air at every turn is intoxicating.

Make sure the kids get a look at the 17 foot talking Christmas Tree and a magnificent 7 story special effects Christmas Tree with lights that are synchronized to music. Enjoy over 8 million lights, rides, attractions and shows.

If you happen to be there on December 7th, don’t miss The 60th Annual Adoration Parade. Kids of all ages will enjoy this old-fashioned Christmas parade with bands and floats passing through the streets of historic Downtown Branson. The climax of the event is the lighting of the nativity scene atop Mount Branson.

I’ve included my favorite hotels and places to eat for you to check out. If you go with your kids, you will have a wonderful, magical vacation. If you go with you significant other, the magic that is Christmas may change your relationship forever!

I will never forget my first Christmas trip to Branson. Christmas is a magical time, there’s just something in the air you can’t ignore. But being surrounded by so much Christmas spirit is truly wonderful. So, if you’re worried about missing the family during Christmas, you know you can’t really do that, go in early December. You’ll get the best deals on lodging then and the kids will love it. It’s a very romantic, energizing getaway.

Oh Honey, Isn't This a Wonderful Place!

What a magnificent, magical place. Just remember, this is just a vacation, so you can’t get caught up in mystique that is Hawaii. When you get back home, he’ll be the same as he was before he left. No, really!
