A visit to the past at Silver Dollar City, Branson MO

Silver Dollar City, Branson MO is a world of culture, history and fun. Since the early sixties it has been a treat for young and old alike. Marvel Cave was the main attraction at the start and the small group of buildings outside of the cave was set up for folks as they waited for their cave tour.

Today the park itself is the main attraction. Filled with every level of ride and attraction imaginable, it is one of the premier amusement parks in the nation. This is the best of summer travel but you may want to consider traveling here in the fall and at Christmas as well.

Kids of every age love these unique amusement park rides and will want to spend the whole day in the park. Parents and Grandparents have their own attractions to see. Amid the unique shops are craftsmen and artisans making every product needed by 19th century families, from soap, guns, knives to furniture, glassware, pottery, quilts and more.

Food and treats of every kind are situated throughout the park as are musicians playing that Ozark music.

One visit won't be enough. You will want to return again and again. With a season pass, you can come to all 6 festivals through the year, sit back and listen to the shows throughout the park or watch and visit with the craftsmen.

For over 40 years we've hit the road for Silver Dollar City for hundreds of mini vacations.
