Family Vacation Branson Part 2

Catfish, BBQ ribs, BBQ nachos and burgers were served to the Braley family at our new found favorite place to eat in Branson—Danna’s BBQ!!  It was wonderful…so wonderful we went twice.   One of the best things to do on vacation is to find new, delicious food and stuff yourself—we accomplished this feat at Danna’s.  The portions were huge and the kickin’ catfish was great.  We had fun listening to oldies and eating in a cool diner setting.  Try the Branson West location and PIG OUT!

We have been vacationing in Branson for many years and have stayed in motels, resorts and even camped in our little pop-up camper.  Still Waters Resort gets our vote for the number 1 fun-filled family spot.   We had great accommodations with a 3 bedroom condo on the 4th floor with a glassed in deck.  I like having a washer and dryer with my messy crew.  We were able to cook suppers in the fully-equipped kitchen.  But the biggest selling point would beTableRockLake.  My kids loved it.  There were kayaks, paddle boats and large inner tubes for our enjoyment—all FREE—Mr. Braley’s favorite word.  We just grabbed a life jacket and off we went for some great paddling.  The cove is large and little ones can pick up a small kayak and hang out at the shoreline.

The resort also offers 3 pools.  Gideon loved the FLUME, a fast flowing water slide.  There is also a game room and free use of bikes. We also took full advantage of the Bayside Market and bought some ice cream novelties.  Check them out at

Last, but not least, I must give comment to the BEST ice cream in the world—Blue Bell.  We couldn’t decide so we got 3 tubs.  Mint Chocolate Chip and Moolenium Crunch were my picks.  The kids enjoyed the Cookie Dough.  Watch out as the sticker price is 6 bucks a half gallon, but it was a great vacation treat.


Our family loves the country, outdoors and fun.  The Ozarks hills give you all these.  Go visit Branson and be blessed by its beauty.
