Once a year, Americans take one day – Nov. 11 – to officially honor the country’s veterans. Restaurants provide free meals, and attractions offer free and discounted admission. But in Branson, they extend it to an entire week.
Every November, the Southwest Missouri town thanks those who have served in the military with special events, parades, shows and more during Veterans Homecoming Week. And as far as they’re concerned, that’s still not enough. Branson makes veterans feel special every single day of the year.
Top attractions, restaurants, hotels and stores offer great deals for veterans (and active military personnel) all year long.
Some of the popular shows with special pricing for veterans include Dolly Parton’s Stampede, The Petersens, Branson’s Famous Baldknobbers and Clay Cooper’s Country Express. Area attractions like the Titanic Museum Attraction, National Tiger Sanctuary, Silver Dollar City and many others also offer discounts for veterans.
There are a variety of other Missouri attractions that provide veteran and military discounts. Here are just a few:
Wonders of Wildlife National Museum & Aquarium in Springfield shows their appreciation year-round with a discount for active-duty military, veterans and their dependents.
Hidden Valley in Wildwood offers veterans and active military a 50 percent discount on snow skiing, snowboarding and tubing. They’re open December through mid-March.
Kansas City Royals gives active-duty and retired military the opportunity to purchase up to four half-price tickets for most regular-season games.
Be sure to call ahead for details on veteran and active military discounts.
