My wife and i have decided that we can't afford to take our vacation to the Philippines this year because of the current conditions affecting the economy therefore we discussed the possibility of traveling somewhere else less expensive. A friend of ours works for a travel agency nearby so i thought what a great idea to see if he can't help us decide on some local destinations here in the united states that will fit our budget. He suggested several different packages available that fit our budget and one of those destinations was the Hilton Promenade at Branson Landing or the Hilton Branson Convention Center Hotel. My wife and i viewed the inside of these hotels and we couldn't believe it! What a beautiful hotel! And you should see the beautiful pool they have. My son loves to swim so he will enjoy the pool. We want to visit the branson landing and walk along the boardwalk to enjoy the scenic views and catch the beautiful Lake Taneycomo.You know, do what tourist do and take all kinds of pictures. Hehehe. Our friend said there's a lot of free things to do so we don't have to spend a lot of money and make our trip more enjoyable. I'm a big wine drinker fan so of course I'm going to want to visit the Stone Hill Winery and check out how they make wine and even get to taste some. Hehehehe. My wife Love's anything related to fish or fishing so she wants to check out the shepherd of the hills fish hatchery with their spectacular fish aquariums and the native fish of Missouri. For our son we thought of taking him to the Yakov’s Moscow Circus because they have family magic and laughter and Andrei the Clown. I'm sure he will enjoy the circus. My friend said that we must visit Dolly Parton's Dixie Stampede Dinner & Show because of the fun and a dinner show of 32 horses and trick riding and the ostrich races, and some comedy. WOW! Sounds like a lot of fun for a dinner. To finish our trip my wife and i would like to see the block buster show "spirit of the dance" We heard these Irish dancers have been seen by more than 32 million people so it must be a smash hit! We plan on booking or vacation for September.
