StoneBridge Resort is here to offer fantastic Branson West lodging and has a few tips for planning your best family vacation. Whether it is figuring out what to pack or building your itinerary, StoneBridge Resort is ready to assist you with all your needs.

Planning Out Your Branson Adventure

When visiting new places, you can sometimes get a little overwhelmed with all of the local attractions and things to do. It can often be hard to plan everything out so that you are not rushing through some of the best parts of your trip. To build a good itinerary for what you are doing, take a look at the local websites or speak with one of our staff members on some of the Branson must-sees. You can plan it out by hitting a few short stops on the way to a larger attraction like Silver-dollar City so that you do not miss a thing in between and are not rushed.

What To Bring


Once you have your itinerary planned out, it is a little easier to figure out what to pack. Though many know to pack their favorite outdoors clothing and a good pair of walking shoes, there are a few things you will not want to miss. We made up a little checklist to make packing a little easier.

  • Layers (make sure you can layer so that you can adjust with the temperatures)
  • Light sweater
  • Jacket
  • Long pants and a pair or two of shorts
  • Sandals AND shoes
