It had been over 40 years since either Nancy or I had been to Branson.
That fact just added to the excitement of our trip to S.W. Missouri last summer.
We took advantage of the long Labor Day weekend and headed south to St. Louis and then down Highway 44.
Anytime we go through St. Louis our first stop is always at the Collinsville exit to grab some great B-B-Q at Bandanas.
We love their food and the service is always exceptional. This visit was no different.
It was after 6 p.m. when we hit the road so we decided to go halfway and spend the first night on the road. We found a wonderful Pear Tree Inn in Rolla.
It was really clean, well-furnished and had an amazing breakfast buffet, as well. I recommend Pear Tree Inn as you travel through Missouri.
After a short stop in Springfield to browse and lunch at Bass Pro, we headed straight south to Branson. We stayed there in a gorgeous condo at Village of Indian Point on Table Rock Lake just five miles from Silver Dollar City.
These accommodations were recommended highly by a friend and our stay there could not have been better. The décor of the condo and the view of the lake were outstanding.
Having a full kitchen surely helped out our trip expenses by not having to eat every meal out.
The grounds and both indoor and outdoor pools were perfect. They also have a boat dock and workout room. Village at Indian Point is a true winner.
