Travel has always been a part of my life. I find different cultures around the world to be a vital part of what defines us as people. . Learning a different life style can change the way you relate to things at home.

Kick off your day with an early morning visit to Table Rock Lake. Spanning more than 42 acres, this lake and its many trails could easily occupy you for a full day (or many days), but if you don't have that much time, it's still possible to squeeze in a hike.
A morning of fresh air is certain to fire up the appetite, and Billy Gail's Cafe is happy to help in that department. With its old-fashioned decor and service with a smile, this down-home spot is certain to make you feel like family as soon as you sit down. The specialty here is breakfast, but lunch is also served.
An 1800s-themed amusement park, Silver Dollar City has it all, from rides to shows, to delicious snacks. This can be an all-day event, but you can also pick and choose your activities if you are short on time.
Situated underneath Silver Dollar City, Marvel Cave is spectacular geological wonder that was both the impetus for the theme park (which grew up around the cave's entrance) and the first major tourist attraction in Branson. The Registered National Landmark officially opened for tours in 1894, and it has been inspiring awe in visitors ever since. On a tour of the caves, you'll descend almost 300 feet below ground, passing beautiful (and still-growing!) cave formations on your way to the Cathedral Room — the largest cave entrance room in the nation.
The World's Largest Toy Museum is just what it sounds like — its collection of vintage and recent toys will bring the kid out in anyone!
Like many eateries in Branson, Mel's Hard Luck Diner offers up a meal with a side of live entertainment. While you dine on all-American grub in this 1950s-style establishment, the staff will entertain you with musical numbers. Since most of them are also in professional productions, this top-notch entertainment comes at a bargain!
Ripley's is a staple of the weird and the unique. Have you ever wondered what it would be like to stand next to the tallest man that ever lived? Yup... you can do that and more at Ripley's!
The Titanic Museum will let's you step into the shoes of one of the passengers on that ill-fated ship. Upon entering the museum, you will be given the name of one of the Titanic passengers, and after exploring replicas of the ships stately halls and opulent staterooms, you'll learn whether or not your passenger survived that famous wreck.
Bet you didn't know Missouri did wine, but Stone Hill produces award-winning vino in a beautiful setting. Take a free tour of the winery and then hang around for the free wine tastings.
The Celebrity Car Museum is a must for movie fans and car enthusiasts alike. Many cars have found their way to stardom over the years and here is where a lot of them — from that free-whellin' Volkswagen Bug Herbie, to Wayne and Garth's blue Pacer, to the Batmobile — are spending their retirement.
It's hard to pinpoint the best part of Dolly Parton's Dixie Stampede. The classic country meal is certainly excellent, but that show may just take your breath away. Luckily for you, you can enjoy both the eats and the fantastic horse tricks by some of the best riders in the world, all in one awesome night.
One of Branson's greatest landmarks, the fountain show works magic with water, fire, and lights to a different song (and theme!) every hour. It's located at the Branson Landing shopping center, a pretty area with shops, restaurants, and entertainment. And since the last light show is at 10pm (Monday through Saturday, 9pm on Sundays), this is a great way to cap off your night.
