When is the best time to visit Branson?

Okay, we've been to Branson many times before so I guess I should know this one, but I don't. We are wanting to go after it cools off and is not so crowded. Do you think the end of September or mid October will be decent weather? My husband hates the heat and the crowds so I'm trying to plan this "perfect" trip around avoiding both of those.
Thanks!!!

If I were shooting for cooler weather, I'd vote October hands down- but you may need to investigate and see if there are large gatherings planned during October, that may bring crowds.

With the National Crafts Festival each fall at SDC -- you might want to go during the week. We used to go then and it was wonderful. But now we go in November for Ozark Mountain Christmas and just love it. Weekends are still busier than during the week during this time, but not as bad as summer months when everyone is out of school, etc.

The last 5 yrs. we have came to Branson the last week of Sept. The temps have been from the mid 70s to the low 80s. Most nights were in the high 40s to the low 50s.

We usually go to Branson in mid-October. We try to time it when the trees are at prime. It is absolutely gorgeous then. We too try to go during the week to avoid more crowds.

Yes I agree it is nicer to attend SDC during the week but check out the calendar 1st on their website. They are closed Mon and Tues.

My favorite time of the year is December. I love the Christmas shows. I come all the time since I only live 2 hours away but I love the town during the Christmas season.

But watch out for ice/snow. Branson is on a hill and it is not fun to slide down one of those hills.
