You must see the Millions of beautiful Christmas lights at Silver Dollar City.




Silver Dollar City theme park, in Branson, MO, is truly a magical place during the Christmas season.

Silver Dollar City Theme Park-Christmas Over 4 Million Lights-Video

Each building and tree are covered with hundreds of lights.  At night, the park turns into a Christmas wonderland with over 4 million lights. The lights are as far as you can see down each street in Silver Dollar City!!  I love just to stand and look all around me at the lights.  If you are with that someone special, it is a great romantic place to walk around.  In the video slideshow, you will see a five-story Christmas tree that changes colors to the music.  It is as the tree is dancing to Christmas music.  They have two great shows during Christmas that are NOT to be missed, A Dickens’ Christmas Carol and It’s A Wonderful Life! 

These are just a few of the reasons we support and visit Branson, MO often.  

I cannot count the times’ people call, e-mail, leave me a comment on Facebook or my blog asking me “Why do you enjoy Branson”?  My answer is always:

  1. It is a family friendly place.  You often see two or three generations vacationing together.

  2. Silver Dollar City and the Branson Shows are not afraid to mention God.

  3. Silver Dollar City and the Branson Shows all support and honor our Military.

  4. Branson has great family friendly restaurants with good food.

  5. You can find things to do in Branson for all ages.
