We drive to Sikeston, Missouri, for our frst night of the tour. In the evening you will enjoy a delicious dinner (included) at Lambert’s Throwed Rolls Restaurant where we can eat all the homemade rolls we can catch.
We will enjoy a deluxe continental breakfast at our hotel this morning before departing for Branson where accommodations await us for the next three nights. Upon arrival in Branson, we will have some free time for shopping and lunch before checking into our hotel. There is so much to see in these three days. We will see at least fve of the major Christmas shows in Branson including Shoji Tabuchi Theatre, a must-see always in Branson, and the Sight and Sound Theatre production “SAMSON”. With supernatural strength and long, luscious hair, Samson has been set apart to deliver God’s people from the hands of the Philistines. But his appetite for pleasure and lack of self-control jeopardize his mission. He defeated an entire army and slayed a lion with his bare hands. But there’s a secret behind Samson’s superpower.
Chosen by God from birth, he’s been given superhuman strength – as long as he follows the rules. And that’s where the trouble begins. Samson soon falls prey to temptation, losing his strength and sight. And it’s here where he will face his greatest challenge. Journey with this unlikely hero as he battles the Philistines – and his own personal calling. It’s an unforgettable, uplifting story that will literally bring the house down! From the star atop Mt. Branson’s nativity scene to the “stars” of entertainment along 76 Country Blvd., Branson comes alive in a glittering, star-studded Festival of Lights guaranteed to put you in the spirit of this magical season. Dinner is included each evening in Branson. We will enjoy a holiday meal one evening at the beautiful Chateau On The Lake, a World Class Resort overlooking Table Rock Lake.
Silver Dollar City is the perfect example of why there’s no place like Branson for the holidays! The popular theme park is transformed into a glittering Christmas wonderland; adorned with over 6.5 million brilliant lights, it’s a seasonal sight to behold for the entire family! A thousand trees are lined with lights, and everywhere you look, you’ll discover both holiday cheer and reminders of the real reason for this glorious season.
This morning we will depart Branson traveling through Missouri to Paducah, Kentucky, at the confuence of the Ohio and Tennessee Rivers for our last overnight stop. After checking into our hotel for the night, we have a short drive to Grand River to Patti’s and Bill’s Restaurants located “twixt” the rivers in Grand Rivers, Kentucky… at the North entrance to the Land Between The Lakes. Both restaurants share the same kitchen and prepare the same meals serving up superb home-style cooking and fantastic desserts. We will have time for shopping and browsing in the gift and speciality shops.
Today is the fnal day of our Ozark Mountain holiday tour. . . what better way to get into the Holiday Spirit than a visit to the Ozark Mountains Festival of Lights with KNOXVILLE TOURS.
