Branson Landing Riverwalk
Posted on March 14th, 2011
A popular spot for an interesting walk is the scenic sidewalk and boardwalk along the Taneycomo lakefront at the Branson Landing. The Branson Landing is a unique shopping, dining, and entertainment area that stretches for a mile and a half along the Taneycomo Lakefront. The lakefront trail is level and paved. Along the trail you will pass many walkers, shoppers, trout fisherman, boat docks, ducks and geese. Along the trail you will pass a vibrant town square terracing down from the heart of the Landing to the $7.5 million spectacular water attraction that features the first-ever merging of water, fire, light and music. You will be amazed by the dazzling interplay of water fountains shooting 120-foot geysers with fire cannons blasting, all choreographed to light and music. The water and fire spectacle is a creation of internationally renowned Wet Design, the producers of world-class shows for Downtown Disney marketplace in Orlando, Universal City Walk in California and the Bellagio in Las Vegas.
Not to be missed along the north edge of the landing is a small, but very beautiful City Park named North Beach. There you will find an amazing stand of 100 to 150 year old Cottonwood trees that create an oasis of peacefulness amongst the bustle of the Branson Landing. On the south edge of the Landing the trail passes under the old downtown Taneycomo Bridge that has been in place since 1931.The breeze off the cool waters of Lake Taneycomo is always welcome on a hot summer evening
