Now is a great time to visit Branson and Table Rock Lake. The damage from the tornado that ripped through part of Branson recently has been substantially corrected and most of the shows and attractions are open. And, here on the lake, it is beautiful. Many of the spring flowers are now in full bloom, and the redbud trees are beginning to blossom. Soon.the dogwood trees will also show their spring beauty. And, now is also an ideal time to visit Dogwood Canyon which is arguably the most outstanding nature park in Missouri. You can tour the park by bike, by hiking or on a motorized tram. The park is located about 25 minutes from the inn.
