Every year the light show at Silver Dollar City gets bigger and better. Here is what it looked like this year.
Almost 39 years ago, Jim and I honeymooned at Silver Dollar City in Branson. It has remained one of our favorite places to get away to whenever we have a chance. Since it has been several years since we’ve been there – it was time to check out their famous display of Christmas lights. We weren’t disappointed.This swinging bridge is located smack dab in the middle of the city – connecting the old with the new. SDC is 50 years old this year. My family went their for one of our few vacations early on – probably its fourth year of operation. The roads leading to the city were still gravel. They are now 4 and 6 lane highways. This swinging bridge was the entrance into the city.
By 5:30 it is quite dark and all around were displays of trees like this red one.
And this cluster of trees was such a pretty sight.
One of the quaintness of the city is that you never know where you are going to find the
music of the Ozarks. We happened onto this jam session in a little log cabin. It was one of the highlights of our trip.
A trip to SDC is not complete without a trek in the caverns of Marvel Cave. To read more about it go here.These concrete steps lead down into the many narrow, sometimes low, twisty and turny pathways through the cave.
Yes, this really is a passage way we walked through.
And here you see daylight from about 1/4 of the way down in the cave. I took many more pictures, but photos of what is a magnificent site to the naked eye, is sometimes not able to be captured on film. That’s my story and I’m sticking to it.
I hope you enjoyed this little jaunt into Silver Dollar City with me.
