Summer at Branson Missouri

This is a Sponsored Post written by me on behalf of Hiltons of Branson. All opinions are 100% mine.

A visit to one of Branson's spectacular tourist destination, The Titanic Museum. This huge two-story building is full of memorabilia from the Titanic era. It also houses one of the richest collection of amazingly clear photos of the titanic at sea, before it's sad fate. These photos are courtesy of  a titanic-survivor who took a lot of photos of titanic and the passengers during it's sail. Technology has enhanced the rare photos, making it clear and vibrant. This Titanic Museum is massive, with a 100 feet height. Holds 400 rare artifacts. It is anchored on water, giving it the at-sea look. Most of us have seen the movie, Titanic, but nothing compares to seeing the photos of the real people who have survived.

My husband and I were fortunate to enjoy a week-long spring break, that allowed us to explore Branson Missouri. We drove from Houston, with several of our co-teachers, and met with some friends, the MCCasland's, who have driven a week ahead to meet family and relatives. The McCasland's regaled us of their stay at Hilton Branson Convention Center Hotel. The couple and their relatives, were wowed by the clean surroundings and friendly service. Like them, good customer service, is one of the things that Doods and I look for in a hotel. The McCasland's had a huge family reunion at Branson. Like them, Doods and I are fond of traveling with company -in a big group- so we always look for reasonably-priced packages, like the ones being offered at Hilton Branson Convention Center Hotel. 

This summer, my sister and her family joined us here in Houston, from Arizona. My three nieces ages 12, 11 and 9 have just completed their first school year here in America, from the Philippines. It was a huge adjustment for them, so we are looking forward to take them driving this summer, to help them unwind and de-stress. I know, even children get stressed-out these days.

We have a long list of places to choose from, and Branson is on top of the list. They are all excited to visit the Titanic Museum and explore the other activities in the area like the Ride the Duck, A tour around the city aboard the WWII replica of the DUCW. This amphibious vehicle takes you on a drive and a plunge that will have you quacking in delight. We are looking forward to taking my nieces to see the fish hatchery. Doods and My brother-in-law can't wait o go fishing on Lake Tnaycomo -well stocked from the fish hatchery!  Last time Doods and I were in Branson, we looked around some places that offer good packages. One ofthe places we checked out was Hilton Promenade at Branson Landing, and it looks like a good place to stay. They have packages for big groups like ours. We can't wait to take the girls to Branson this summer.

wonderful trip - there'a a Titanic Quarter being built in Belfast in Northern Ireland which will be open for the big 100th anniversary.

Its a place that I would like to visit and take the family as my children's great grandfather helped to build the Titanic at the Belfast Harland and Wolfe Ship yard.

They've just opened a similar Titanic Museum in Gatlinberg, Tennessee.
