How To Have A Splurge Vacation On A Shoestring
If you’re worrying that your best hope of a vacation this year is a trip to the local movie theater or a waist-high wallow in the kids’ wading pool, think again: Boxcar Willie Inn in Branson, MO is nearby, surprisingly affordable, and fun!
Nestled in the green and rolling Ozark Mountains alongside three pristine lakes, Branson boasts 52 theaters with 58,000 seats—14,000 more than Broadway—hosting over 100 hundred live-performance shows featuring genres from Broadway to rock to today’s country hits as well as magic, comedy and musicals. Branson also features an internationally award-winning theme park; dozens of museums and attractions;
And all this is affordable: Branson is located within a day's drive of 60 percent of the U.S. population, making it both convenient and easy on the wallet. Branson’s new airport opens this May with affordable flights to and from just about anywhere in the country. Branson shows and attractions are also far more affordable than those in comparable destinations. Adult theater tickets average about $30.00 per person—a fraction of Vegas or Atlantic City prices—and child tickets go for an average of $8.00 each. Museum and attraction prices for adults average about $21.00 per person, with children’s prices at an average of $17.50 each—far less than the going rates in Orlando.
Luxury Lodging, Shoestring-Style
Legendary Boxcar Willie Inn, just off Branson’s famed Strip, is offering guests a Splurge On A Shoestring Package beginning March 19. “We want guests to be able to come to Branson and have fun, despite the current economic conditions,”
Boxcar Willie Inn, cited by Expedia.com, as “a luxurious theme hotel,” is a favorite with guests of all ages. Amenities include an indoor heated pool and sauna; outdoor sun deck; sitting-room style lobby with fireplace, antique player piano and 50-inch television; guest laundry room; complimentary Whistle Stop breakfast; warm and friendly staff; and white-glove cleanliness.
