Inexpensive activities

My sister and her husband (no kids) will be visiting Branson soon and they are looking for inexpensive things to do. I've been racking my brain but it seems everything I usually do, SDC, etc. requires a good amount of money. Any suggestions?

We enjoy walking down at the Landing and window shopping.

DH and I were watching the Vacation Channel last week. The IMAX has a buy one get one free deal going on but you have to say you heard it on the Vacation Channel. It will not be posted at the box office.

We always enjoy playing mini golf. It is relatively inexpensive. Since it will be cold outside they could play at Grand Country Square. They have a very nice indoor course, and we really enjoy playing there. When we played at Grand Country last week it was $6.50 for adults. You can usually find coupons around town to help with that cost!

The campus of the College of the Ozarks is an interesting place to visit. The fruitcake kitchen/bakery should be open for free tours, the grist mill will probably have students 'working', demonstrating weaving and other crafts, and they have a very good museum on the campus that only charges adults approximately $4. The car from the Beverly Hillbillies is one of the attractions in the museum.

The Branson Mill and Mt. Man - Free Samples!

Engler Block - If you go back in the "Holler" you can watch several different demonstrations and listen to music.

Branson Hall of Fame Museum is free of charge.

These are all wonderful. I will make them a list of these suggestions. Is the fountain on a certain schedule?

I think it is on the hour and half hours throughout the day but only on the hours after 7 pm or something. I may actually have that backwards, so someone who knows better than I may want to clarify.
