Year End Branson Bargains

The week between Christmas and New Years is a great time to see a show or plan a last minute getaway. If you can’t get enough of Chistmas, Branson is the spot for you. Many of the holiday shows will run through New Year’s Day.

There’s more good news. You can find great deals on hotel/entertainment packages, plenty of hotel space, and avoid the summer traffic. You may even find some New Year’s Celebrations still accepting reservations.

Now is the time for year end sales and bargains galore. Branson becomes a shoppers paradise. To get you started on bargain hunting, here are three of my favorite shopping centers:

Check the Weather/Road Conditions –

The Ozark Mountains are beautiful just after a snow. If you are lucky, maybe you will be snowed in for an extra day or two. (Bring a good book, or catch up on all those magazines you’ve been meaning to read, just in case.)
