Summer has arrived! After the last few months of staying at home, there’s never been a better time to enjoy some of the great outdoor activities that the Tri-Lakes have to offer. Check out five ways you can enjoy some quality outdoor time with your family and friends!
1. Branson Paddleboarding
If you are looking for a popular but unique outdoor adventure give stand-up paddleboarding a try! Combining the skill of surfing with the relaxation of kayaking, paddleboarding is a great way to explore our area lakes. Kayak Branson offers paddleboard rentals for either Lake Taneycomo or Table Rock Lake. There are guided tours available for those that are new to the sport. For the family member that is less adventurous Kayak Branson offers 1-3 passenger Kayak rentals for a half or full day. Times and availability vary with the season so you will want to make a reservation to secure a time.
2. Snowflex Tubing
Branson’s Wolfe Moutain offers the largest synthetic tubing run in the USA! It was designed by Briton Engineering Departments Ltd using the high performance snow sports surface Snowflex®. Up to six tubes can simultaneously make this 400 foot slide. The entire family can enjoy the thrill of an hour of tubing while surrounded by the Ozarks beauty! Wolfe Mountain also offers Zipline Tours as well as guided Walking Tours. Check out their website for more information and to book your adventure!
Create unforgettable family memories on beautiful Table Rock Lake. If you like to ski, pull the kids around on a tube, or just want to spend a relaxing day fishing, State Park Marina has a boat rental that will fit your needs. How about a canoe, kayak or paddle boat? They’ve got them! They even have WaveRunners for the more adventurous family members!
Other options include a two-hour cruise on their 48-foot catamaran, Spirit of America, Classic Boat lake tour or bike rentals. And don’t forget to stop by the Boathouse Boutique to pick up some souvenirs of your adventure! Visit their website to get all the details!
4. Off-Road ATV Tours
Are you ready for a true off-road adventure? Head west out of Branson to The Shepherd of the Hills and sign up for their one hour ATV off-road excursion. This staff guided trail ride starts with instructions on operation of the ATV/UTV’s followed by approximately 30 minutes of exploration through The Shepherd of the Hills trails! Each ATV or UTV holds up to 4 riders so there is plenty of room for everyone!
When you’re done off-roading you can try your hand at the ropes course or head over to The Historic Farm for the petting zoo, a little putt putt golf and a trip up the Inspiration Tower. Don’t forget to check out their live shows including The Shepherd of the Hills Outdoor Drama. You can find out more about pricing and hours of operation by visiting their website.
