I was invited to attend a media trip to Branson, in partnership with Stone Castle Hotel, to attend the #BloggingBranson Event in exchange for my coverage. All views shared are 100% my own.
After five years, my husband and I are headed back to Branson, Missouri. Our family visited there back in 2014 and I am so pumped that I will be going back with the #bloggingbranson team.
They have such a fun-filled packed lineup set up for us — and they are all things that I have yet to see or do, so that makes me super excited.
Visiting Branson, Missouri
Stone Castle Hotel and Conference Center
We will be staying in the beautiful Stone Castle Hotel and Conference Center. They just recently underwent an update and the rooms are awesome. They have standard rooms, but they also have unique rooms that each have a special theme such as Arabian nights, 20,000 Leagues under the Sea.
It's going to be spectacular.
Attractions We Will Be Covering
I think one of the things I am most excited about is that I am FINALLY going to get to see Dolly Parton's Stampede. I have been on my head to see this show for years and it has just never worked out for me to see it, so I am super pumped about this.
Other shows we are going to see while there are
- Clay Cooper' Country Express at the Clay Cooper Theatre
- Branson’s IMAX Movie
- Titanic Museum Attraction Private Event
- Hughes Music Show at the Hughes Brothers Theatre
Restaurants We Will Be Covering
I always love when I get to eat at new to me restaurants and this time, all of them are unique to the Branson area and places I have never eaten before.
We will be having breakfast every morning at the hotel because they are known for their fantastic hot breakfast buffet. But then for lunch and dinner, we will be eating at places like
- Florentina's Ristorante Italiano
- Fall Creek Steak House
And of course, they serve food and dinner at the Stampede, the IMAX, and at the Hughes Music show — so you know that there will be plenty of food to cover.
I cannot wait to share this experience with you. For real-time photos and videos, be sure to follow me on Instagram at @jennifersikora using the hashtag #BloggingBranson.
