The temperatures are cooling down in the Ozarks, creating the perfect weather for outdoor activities. As we get further into September, the beauty of the area is enhanced by the bold colors painting the trees. Accordingly, fall in Branson is one of the absolute best times of the year to experience the beauty of the region.
1) Visit Silver Dollar City
Silver Dollar City’s fall events bring seasonal charm to the parks with family-friendly activities. In 2019, Silver Dollar City presents its new Pumpkin Nights when thousands of glowing pumpkins are scattered throughout the park along with new characters, flavors, and seasonal activities. Kids can do meet and greets with characters, enjoy glow-in-the-dark drinks, ride coasters into the night, and more!
2) Ride the Branson Scenic Railway
Entertaining and educational, a ride aboard the Branson Scenic Railway is even better during Autumn. You can enjoy a 40-mile roundtrip excursion thru Ozark foothills and tunnels via dome cars, dining cars, and vintage coach seating. The option is yours. Not only will you enjoy the views, but you’ll hear about the history of the area as well.
