As the sign on the door says, come on in! Let's take a tour of one of my favorite spots to visit during the Christmas season. We're at Silver Dollar City in Branson. Many of you have seen my SDC posts and photos from past years, but for those of you who may not know about SDC, it is an 1880's theme park that is always beautifully decorated at Christmas with over 5 million lights. You can read the history of Silver Dollar City here if you'd like to learn more about the park. Okay, let's see some photos!
All of my SDC photos were taken with my little Canon Elph pocket camera. It did a fair job, but I don't think any camera could fully capture the beauty of all the lights.
I hope you enjoyed this little tour of SDC. This is only a small sampling of the park which covers around 100 acres. I did a lot of walking up and down the hills and, yes, I stopped to rest quite frequently! We sipped on hot chocolate and sampled some of the goodies all around the park.
I had a video that I took of the 5-story special effects tree on the village square to share with you, but it wouldn't upload. The tree changes colors frequently and the music plays to the special effects every 15 minutes or so. It's enjoyed by kids, both young and old.
After being dazzled by the sights and sounds of Christmas, you might think that I hurried home from Branson and put my own tree up and have the house ready for the holidays. Nope. I'm still awaiting a bit of help getting all the totes carried upstairs. It's been a little hard getting back into a routine after our little trip. How about you? The decorating all done at your house?
Until next time...
