In preparation for the most joyous season of the year which is Christmas, the Las Vegas of the Midwest aglow with light as its streets and attractions are decorated with millions of brilliant multi colored lights. Why don't you take your family to a tour where you can all quack around Branson by getting aboard Ride the Ducks where you will ride a truck and past along the beautifully decorated streets and attractions? Or if you want to be able to stop and take a closer look at the lights and animated displays once in a while, you can just take a family walk along Branson's Festival of Lights. A great way to end that journey is going up to the Inspiration Tower where you will be treated with a view of Branson at winter.
Fishing for trout is a fun family activity in the summer. But during the winter is it even more so. You can take both young and old members of your family on Lake Taneycomo's beautiful lakeshore for winter trout fishing. This activity is less strenuous compared to visiting live shows or attractions as you can just throw bait and spend some quality family time catching up with each other while waiting for a rainbow or brown colored trout to catch your bait. Take advantage of the close distance between your Branson cabin and the pristine lake and don't miss the chance to catch a large trout.
Leaving the comforts of a queen sized sofa in front of a gas fireplace and your cozy Branson cabin could be frustrating sometimes especially because of its very homey ambience. You could of course just lazy around inside if you prefer to be secluded in the woods during the cold days of winter. Don't worry for you won't get bored as you can always play games with your kids that also provide you the chance to spend time and teach them a few things before they head back to school after your vacation. Why don't you bake some cookies and prepare hot chocolate first in the fully furnished kitchen so you can have something to munch while playing chess, making snow sculptures or create architectural masterpieces using candies with your kids?
