Wintertime a great time to visit Downtown Branson

Trolley Stop #6 at the North End of Branson Landing

Everything seems a little slower in the winter. But despite the short days and colder weather, these weeks leading up to spring are a great time to visit Historic Downtown Branson and to ride the free Sparky trolley.

Shopping, dining, and more are downtown, year round. January and February are a great time to get lots of one-on-one attention and to take your time exploring the district. You’ll also find some great deals … just don’t expect big crowds this time of year.

Some of the downtown Branson businesses are making changes this season as well as operating under seasonal hours. Many of the popular downtown businesses are open and their winter schedules are listed below.

Don’t forget to take a ride on Sparky, the free downtown trolley. He has a different schedule as well during these winter months. In January and February Sparky runs from 10 am- 6 pm, Thursday- Sunday. He resumes his regular schedule, 9am-6pm, 7 Days a week, in March. All 13 stops are still included in his route, as well!

There’s no charge and he’s sure to get you anywhere you need to go on your visit. So, hop on and make your trip through Downtown warm and memorable.
