Oh you all have some great suggestions! I'm taking notes, thank you!
NWM - Thanks for the encouragement. He's pretty outgoing, so I hope he manages to find a handful of buddies in his new group. He's still talking about renting a house during Prototype with some of his A-school friends, so some of those friendships will hopefully continue. Best to your son!
joe-mom, so sorry about your son's delay. Mine changed groups 3 times while in SC, he made new friends, their resilient. Prayers for a great outcome for him!
B'sNukeMoM, we went to Branson for my parents 60th wedding anniversary. We had a dinner and show on the Branson Belle Show Boat, loved it. Did the Shepherd on the Hill outside theater. Saw a show at Presley's Country Jubilee. The Site and Sound indoor Theater Show was fabulous, we saw Jonah and the whale live theater. Did a little shopping at Apple tree Mall. We had such a spectacular time with our parents, a memory that will last forever. You will find loads of things to do. Enjoy!
BTW - there did used to be one or two putt putt courses in Branson, but that was years ago when we did that with nieces before our own kids. I don't know if SDC still has the option to buy a ticket after a certain time and then you can go the next day as well. - Theme Park | Silver Dollar City Attractions - I know they are always closed on Monday but I am not sure what their days and hours are during the springtime. There are wineries - Branson Wineries | Explore Branson also - The Butterfly Palace - Branson's Zipline and Snowflex Tube Park | Branson Zipline at Wolfe... - and The Shepherd of the Hills | Official Site | Branson, Missouri
Thanks B'sNukeMom and Chipmunk!
B's - Branson is fun, lots to do. And it's beautiful there. We were there in summer of 2021 with extended family. Some of us went to Silver Dollar City, which, as Chipmunk said, is great and appeals to all ages. My parents and aunt & uncle did the riverboat cruise/dinner, which also included a show, and they enjoyed that. And all of us went to the "Jesus" show at the Sight & Sound Theater, which offers extravagant productions of bible stories/characters. It was an amazing production - worth checking out. Hope y'all have a fantastic time!
joe-mom - So sorry to hear about your sailor. Keep us posted!
B'sNukeMom - I am not familiar with salt caves in Branson, MO - Look on their visitor info website. I don't know if the cave at Silver Dollar City is back open or not - But if you want to do some fun stuff - just go to Silver Dollar City, you can see shows, crafts, ride the rides and eat yummy food!! - Sorry - that is still one of our favorite places to visit, and the primary reason we go to Branson, MO!
joe-mom - well bummer on the surgery but glad to see has a positive attitude about it. Good thing is, the time delay still counts towards his contract time!
I'm excited as we are heading out on vacation next week. Going to Branson, MO for a week. If anyone has any suggestions as to what to see/do, I'm all ears. So far the only thing planned is the Aquarium - tickets are purchased! Youngest son and his fiancee are joining us and they already have 2 different days of golf planned. Hubby and I don't golf (unless you count putt-putt lol!) so we'll look for something else to do then. I did see they have the Salt Caves there so we want to do a hike....and we want to see a show, just haven't figured out which one.....
