Fall is the perfect time to visit the Ozarks. Temperatures are cooler, the crowds are smaller, and Branson is home to some of the most beautiful fall colors around. If you want to plan a trip to Branson this autumn, the folks at Branson’s Best Reservations can guide you to some of best ways to see the amazing changing leaves.
One way to experience the fall colors is by taking a trip on the Branson Scenic Railway. You’ll start your fall journey at the historic 1905 train depot in Branson’s scenic downtown. Seating is open on the train, and passengers are encouraged to explore while looking for a seat. Each of the train’s unique, vintage cars was built between the 1930’s and the 1950’s, and all have been restored to their former glory. Some of the cars even have upper-level seating under a glass dome assuring you’ll have a panoramic view of the fall colors as you pass them by. The 45-minute trip is narrated by one of the railway’s conductors providing interesting facts about the sights you pass on your journey. On your trip, you’ll see abandoned towns, cross train trestles, and go through tunnels while viewing the beautiful changing colors and incomparable Ozarks scenery.
