Tue, Oct 12: Depart Indianapolis for Branson, Missouri. Arrive in the heart of the Ozarks bursting with fall color. Check into your hotel, the Hilton Promenade at Branson Landing, a modern shopping and entertainment complex overlooking Lake Taneycomo. The modern shops of Branson Landing offer a plethora of unique options and some more familiar retailers like Belk and Bass Pro Shop. At the heart of the Landing is a vibrant square terracing down to the spectacular water attraction that features the first-ever merging of water, fire, light, and music. Historic Downtown Branson, just across the street from your hotel, offers antique shops, ice cream parlors, and the old five and dime! You’ll have the best of both worlds just outside the doors of your hotel. Tonight, see the first fantastic show of the tour, The Duttons—a talented family who perform bluegrass to classical music and everything in between. Their unique performance features a variety of instruments, including violin, guitar, bass, viola, banjo, mandolin, keyboard, harmonica, and drums, just to name a few. (Meal: Dinner)

Wed, Oct 13: After breakfast and a morning at your leisure, transfer to the dock at Table Rock Lake for a cruise around the beautiful lake aboard the Showboat Branson Belle; a paddle-wheeler with a top-rated variety show that will knock your socks off! A delicious lunch will be served on board while you enjoy the entertainment. Tonight, famous Russian humorist Yakov, will tickle your funny bone with his stand-up routine combined with a cast of backup performers, including a Russian dance troupe. He’ll send you off with an inspiring, patriotic tribute to the United States of America. Return to the hotel after the show. (B,L)

Thu, Oct 14: This morning, see the All Hand’s on Deck! show—a 1942 roadshow and radio broadcast reproduction filled with the songs, dances, and laughs that America has loved for 70 years. Featuring the vocals of Broadway veterans, the rich sounds of a live nine-piece orchestra, classic commercials, tight harmonies, and impromptu skits, this show celebrates the American way of life and recalls a time when our country was fully united. Lunch is included before heading to Dick Clark’s American Bandstand Theatre where you’ll enjoy the show SIX; critically acclaimed and dubbed “an orchestra of human voices”, these multi-talented brothers don’t use any instruments, but you’ll think you’re hearing them! Tonight, the Oakridge Boys will entertain you with their four-part harmonies and upbeat songs comprised of dozens of Country hits and a number one Pop smash. Their four decades of charted singles brought to the stage will have you singing along to all of your favorites. (B,L)

Fri, Oct 15: Today’s adventures begin at Top of the Rock Ozarks Heritage Preserve.

The centerpiece of this four-story cave is a cascading waterfall complemented by viewing balconies on four levels. Next, work your way through the galleries at the Ancient Ozarks Natural History Museum; showcasing the American West, civil war, and astounding collections of Native American artifacts. Next, discover the campus of the College of the Ozarks as a student guide will proudly lead you around the campus, stopping at the chapel, Edwards Mill and the fruit cake and jelly kitchen. End your tour at the Keeter Center, where the Executive Chef and culinary students will tantalize your taste buds with a wonderful three-course dinner! Following dinner, see the last production of your tour; Jesus at the Sight and Sound Theatre. Join Peter, Nicodemus, Mary Magdalene and a multitude of others as they journey alongside the most famous person to ever walk the earth.
