Join one of the most anticipated and talked-about events of the year: our annual overnight trip to Branson, Mo. Our full-sized motor coach will leave Olathe at 6:45 a.m. on September 25 (a Tuesday). First stop is the Wonders of Wildlife National Museum & Aquarium in Springfield, Mo., recently voted "America's Best New Attraction" and "America's Best Aquarium" in polls by USA Today. We will take self-guided tours of galleries that take us into the natural habitats of the animal kingdom. We'll break for a buffet lunch at the facility's Hemingway Restaurant. From the museum we continue on to Branson, where we'll check into the Grand Oaks hotel, one of Branson's premiere properties. After we're settled in, our coach will take us to an evening meal at the "Branson Wild West Murder Mystery" dinner theater. Then, after we've helped the cast solve that mystery, it's on to Dick Clark's American Bandstand Theatre for the "Legends in Concert" tribute to the pop greats. Day Two begins with a hot breakfast at the hotel before we motor on to the morning performance of "Hot Rods & High Heels". The show celebrates one of the greatest music eras of all time. After the show we'll enjoy lunch at the Pickin Porch Deli. From there we'll go to the Top of the Rock for a golf-cart tour of the 2.5-mile Lost Canyon Cave and Nature Trail. Finally, we'll board our bus for the ride home. Along the way we'll stop for dinner at the group's favorite Braum's, in Ozark, Mo. We expect to arrive back in Olathe about 9 p.m. 

Single, double and triple options are available for this trip. Cost varies by option.

The cost includes everything described above, except our stop at Braum's. Driver gratuity ($6 suggested) is also additional.

Our Branson trips always sell out, so plan now to secure your reservation with payment by July 23; no refunds possible after that date. You can register and make payment at the Welcome Center or online.
