I Need A Break

Yeah, I know, the first month of the year is not even over yet and I am already yearning for a weekend (or week!) getaway. It's been that kind of month. What with my workload being crazy and Mercury messing up our toys, I really really need to go somewhere and immerse myself in something new. Perhaps I am not the only one in this boat, yes?

You guys in the US are lucky - I ran across some info on Branson, a city in Missouri. It is actually dubbed as the "Live Music Capital of the World," and has so much to offer those who are in need of a refreshing break. If you are not that much into live musical performances (I can't imagine why you wouldn't be, though), they also have tons of other attractions like theme parks, magic shows, drama performances, and the like. For better deals, you can check out the various packages on offer. From platinum ($457/couple, 3D2N plus other perks) to silver ($651/couple, 4D3N plus lots of other perks) - you will find something that will suit your budget and preferences. These packages are perfect for those with a budget since everything is included - except airfare, of course.

What I like best about the idea of going to Branson is the lodging and the atmosphere in general. They've got inns (Settle Inn, Grand Country Inn) which look like they came straight from the past. There's nothing like a historic setting to relax me! And if you want something more modern looking, they also have other hotels to cater to your preferences.

I wish that I were near enough that I could just hop on a plane and spend a long weekend in Branson. Unfortunately for me, I would need weeks to make the trip work. For now, it shall be on my list of places to visit in the future.

  1. We live about 7hrs driving distance from Branson and have been going there for years. Great fishing and boating at Table Rock lake which is right by Branson. You would love it if you ever get to go there. Lots of things to do and see plus great "down home" cooking.
