I second the suggestion to visit the Wonders of Wildlife Aquarium at BPS in Springfield, and the NRA archery and gun museums

Alley Spring, Van Buren MO

Hardy Arkansas
I will look into Bennett Springs. I went to Roaring River many years ago. Is Bennett Springs similar?

Crane Creek @ Crane, MO>>>Take the back way back, and eat at Flat Creek in Cape Fair.

James River @ Hootentown and eat at Double E Burger in Highlandville.

Depending on when, you could come catch my google-eye. They have a pretty limited window.

The James River interests me. Looks like it might make a pretty place for a float trip in October.

They are similar, if you enjoyed RR, you will like Bennett.

There are LOTS Of places in SW Missouri to take a float trip - The James River might interest you if you want to fish and float SLOW, and don't mind paddling.

If you are interested in a float trip, check out Buffalo River, Current River, Jack's Fork, Eleven Point, North Fork, Akers Ferry, or the Niangua, there are LOTS of places for a fun float trip

DW's fam, and we, had a place on the Eleven Point, at Myrtle. We have floated it many times, in many ways.

We were going to build our retirement home there, but bought on Table Rock instead. It was just too much in the Boonies.

Just wanted to mention the restaurant at Crystal Bridges. Inside a glass enclosed peninsula (for lack of a better term) and it is definitely a neat experience. The best tables are next to the windows, so don't accept anything else. We ate there about 2 years ago and the food was crazy good. However, I have to say the food last fall was just OK. Good for sure, but not like the first time.

Smile Daytrips from Branson

We are from central Illinois and frequent visitors to Branson. Wonders of Wildlife museum and Aquarium did not disappoint. I have been to several aquariums and I have to say both the museum and aquarium are awesome experiences. On our last trip we visited the Ozark Heritage museum at Top of the Rock. Another incredible experience and I enjoyed the Native American exhibits.

Depends on the route, there are several including going through Eureka Springs, that would run you close to Beaver Lake Dam and Pea Ridge Military Park. You could route in War Eagle Mill as well or a host of other ways.

I'd do this. Leave Branson, eat breakfast at Granny's in Huntsville Ar, arrive at Fayettevilla Townn Square around 10:30 to 11:00. Eat Lunch at Hugo's or other area restaurant, there's plenty of local options. Drive through the Uof A campus, take Ark 112 to I-49 and head up to Bentonville. Spend the afternoon at Crystal Bridges, head to Eureka Springs and eat supper at Emilios or other local place and back to Branson

Very interesting. But pretty much just a warm-season option, correct?
