Day trips from Branson

My wife and I have started planning at least one day trip to a somewhere easily drivable from Branson during our annual fall vacation.We did a trip to Jasper, AR, ate at Cliff House and saw the elk a couple of years ago.

We love small towns with interesting shops, or mountain streams and maybe even a place where I could throw a small spinner in the creek, but it needs to be somewhere close to a good place to eat.

Anyone have good ideas we should consider?

Have you been to Crystal Bridges in Bentonville?

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.

Quoted: "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"

GGH...shhhshhhh....don't tell anyone about Jacks Fork....it's too good of an "almost private" float/fishing spot....

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
