When it’s time to start planning your fun and relaxing lake vacation, Table Rock Lake Vacation Rentals offer everything you want. From amazing vacation rentals to non-stop activities to please everyone in your picky family, it’s your best bet in southwestern Missouri and northeastern Arkansas. Here are a few top picks to enjoy with your family.

1. Take a Cruise

Spend some time out on the lake and catch up with your family. Table Rock Cruises offers you the chance to enjoy the lake on a yacht with your own captain and crew. You can pack a snack and cooler from the kitchen at your vacation rental or opt to get your snacks catered.

2. Enjoy a Movie

Take a break from the sun or escape a rainy afternoon with a movie at Branson Meadows Cinemas & IMAX. This theater shows the best first run movies and offers at least one of them in Real 3D so your family can take in the latest action, comedy, or Disney film. It’s a short drive from your lakeside cabin.

3. Hob Nob With the Stars

Have you ever wanted to hang out with your favorite stars and famous figures? At Hollywood Wax Museum Entertainment Center just minutes from the lake and your vacation rental, you can do just that. Sit next to Jeanne from the hit television show, or check out Marilyn Monroe with her skirt blowing up at this recently renovated wax museum.

4. Zip Lining

If you’re looking for an adventure for your lake vacation, try your hand at zip lining. Branson ZipLine offers your group the chance to soar above the trees and gain a different perspective of the lake. Take lots of pictures that you upload to social media when you get back to your vacation rental.

5. Enjoy a Little Dinner Theater

Save yourself the hassle of cooking dinner at your vacation rental one evening and take the whole family to Dixie Stampede. While you enjoy dinner, watch a variety of short shoes from majestic horses to racing pigs. There are even some competitions that you and your family get to participate in.

6. Fishing

Known for its amazing bass fishing, Table Rock Lake is a great place to spend a day fishing off the dock at your vacation rental or out on the lake. Take the family out on the lake for the day with a fishing guide to find all the best spots to fish.

7. Horseback Riding

Get your riding boots out of your suitcase at your vacation rental and take the family to Dogwood Canyon Nature Park for a day of horseback riding. This park offers trail rides or lets your group meander through the park alone on horseback. When you arrive, there’s a brief class on safety and riding.

8. Butterfly Palace & Rainforest Adventure

If you want a truly unique experience during your lake vacation, leave your comfortable lakeside cottage rental and drive out to Butterfly Palace & Rainforest Adventure. Wander through the butterfly sanctuary and enjoy seeing butterflies land on your children and hear their squeals of delight. Take some time out to learn more about the rainforest and its exotic ecosystem.

9. Go-Kart Racing

If you have some competitive family members, then take a break from spending time in the water and visit The Track Family Fun Parks just a few minutes from your vacation rental. In addition to go-kart racing, you and your family can enjoy bumper cars and boats, mini golf, and children’s rides.

10. Ride The Ducks

Schedule a tour on a duck from your lakeside cabin. This tour of Branson includes a ride on the Duck. It’s a vehicle that’s part bus and part boat and moves from land to lake with ease. It’s your chance to learn more about Branson, and the kids enjoy the chance to ride on such a unique vehicle.
