    Allow time to stroll through downtown Branson
    Perfect place to relax and browse antique shops, grab a bite to eat, and people watch. Wish we had done more research before coming to Branson. One of our shows was a dud. One was spectacular. There are ticket sales places everywhere. Don't bite on tours or reduced stays of the many timeshares in the area. Plenty of other lodging options that won't ruin your day.

    Enchanted Memories & Dick’s for unique shopping and great finds.
    Love Historic Downtown Branson. Some of our favorite stores from anywhere we’ve ever traveled are here. My favorites are Dick’s 5&10 and Enchanted Memories. Support local small businesses, these are the two best of the best in Branson.

    Branson's Old Town is alive and well
    Our group of seven had brunch on a Saturday and then shopped the great variety of stores. I found the perfect denim jacket and others found gift items. It's a good place to begin. We all loved the 5&10! Huge selection of everything imaginable.

    Loved walking around the downtown!
    Great little old downtown. enjoyed the 5&10 cent store. Can't believe how much stuff they have crammed in there! Also, some great shops and restaurants. Be sure to walk down to the river from there and see the new area with a great water show fountain and great new shops and restaurants.

    So relaxing
    If you love to shop, this is the place to go. there were some know stores and some different kinds. But I love the fact that it was like an outdoor mall. No vehicles to wait for, except for a kids train and a golf cart trolley. The water show was amazing as well. We only saw it during the daytime. But I bet it was beautiful at nigt.

    Walk Down Memory Lane
    I’ve been going here for decades! Literally since I was a little girl! Fun to remember how things were. Breakfast is still at same two spots. The Boardwalk adds a new dimension. Shopping and restaurants and zip lines and other activities let you find as much as you want in old downtown Branson

    SDC Christmas Lights
    Silver Dollar City Christmas lights are worth the trip. The entire park is lit up although they could use a few more lights in the parking lot. Visit Dick’s 5 & 10 in downtown Branson. It is a must see.

Very nice little tourist downtown destination. The five and ten cent store and the Victorian store are must sees.

Always love going into downtown Branson. It is a little tough to drive around because streets are pretty narrow. so you need to get out a walk to experience it

Great place to buy souvenirs & lunch. Not much parking available on the street but there is a parking lot behind 5 & 10. Not mobility friendly, too steep.

We loved the history of this little 'town'. The shops were fun to visit, especially Dick's 5 & .10. The restaurants were retro and fun to visit.
