Things to Do

We have made so many memories together while here in Missouri. Whether it's having a traditional lunch picnic at Dogwood Canyon to screaming at the top of our lungs on Powder Keg at Silver Dollar City, we are so excited to share these recommendations with you. We hope that you can make your own memories at some of our favorite places!

Top of the Rock

From the cave golf cart tour to the fireplace room at Osage Restaurant to the beautiful sunset that covers the sky, Top of the Rock is a must see while at Big Cedar Lodge! You can book your golf cart tour or your dining reservation with the link below! You might even see some men in kilts while you are there!

Dogwood Canyon Nature Park

At this 10,000 acre paradise park, God's creation truly shines! I (Avery) grew up riding my bike through the waterfalls, eating PB&J's at our annual picnic, feeding dozens of rainbow trout, and truly enjoying all the Lord has made for us. You'll find a beautiful working Mill, a huge treehouse to walk through, Segways, horseback riding, bikes, fishing, and so much more! 

Silver Dollar City

Since our first trip together to Big Cedar Lodge, one of Michael and I's favorite places to go is Silver Dollar City! There is something for the whole family to enjoy. Whether you go to the entertaining shows, try out the looping rollercoasters, eat all the funnel cakes and freshly smoked bbq, you are guaranteed a good time!

Buzzard Bar at Big Cedar Lodge

Buzzard Bar is the hidden gem of Big Cedar! By 8:00pm, it transforms into the Clay Self show! Clay has been there ever since we have been going to Big Cedar! From singing on stage to dancing with Clay, we have always had the best time there! It is a great spot for late night appetizers and desserts right on Big Cedar's property!

Harry's Cocktail Lounge at Big Cedar Lodge

This is a new cocktail lounge under one of Big Cedar's best restaurants, the Worman House! It has bite size desserts, fun drinks, and jazz music! 

Branson Landing

Branson Landing is a great place to shop, watch the fire/water show, and eat some goood food!

Tanger Outlets-Branson

The outlets-need we say more? They have great shopping for  great prices!

Krispy Kreme

Every time we go to Big Cedar, it is tradition to pick up a dozen of Krispy Kreme Donuts! So while you're here, join in on the tradition and eat a Krispy Kreme donut!:)
