If you are like most people, you need some kind of vacation every once in a while. If you want to have the time of your life on your vacation, then you should go to Branson, Missouri. Branson is affectionately known as the entertainment capital of the Midwest, and it deserves this label. My husband tells me that Missouri is absolutely beautiful, and I can not wait for us to go there someday. In Branson, you will find everything that you desire for a vacation. There are many local shops and boutiques to satisfy your thirst for shopping, and there are plenty of quality restaurants for eating out with your family. The Hilton Promenade at Branson Landing and the Hilton Branson Convention Center Hotel are conveniently located right in the middle of all of the fun and action of Branson, so you will have the best hospitality during your stay. If you go there, make sure that you experience the Payne Stewart Golf Course. Even if you do not play golf, you will be amazed at the overall beauty. My husband would most certainly play some golf if he had the chance. I think that I would prefer to spend an afternoon at one of the lakes near Branson and get some sun. Then I would really like to see their scenic river walk and possibly squeeze in dinner at an elegant restaurant.
