We drove through the Trail of Lights in Branson last night. It reminded us of the one we drove through in Charleston, S.C. The cost was $12 each, it was worth every penny. After the tour, you also get a ticket to visit the 230 foot Inspiration Tower. You can see all the lights for miles below from the tower. I did my best to take good pictures, but night pictures are not my specialty. I am adding some of the best ones, please excuse the blurs etc.
Paste of information below:
The Trail of Lights featured a drive-thru animation display that will carry you into the very heart of Christmas. The Trail winds its way through the historic 160-acre Shepherd of the Hills Homestead, and will take you down the famous "Trail that Nobody Knows How Old" into a holiday wonderland.
You'll travel through a variety of different lands, each with their own theme, from fantasy to religious to patriotic. Life-size (and some larger than life!) three-dimensional characters have their own housing so you can "peek" in on the fun happening inside. Festive holiday music is themed to each scene, and visitors are sure to find themselves singing along. And the new Victorian Christmas displays add even more excitement and fun!
The Trail also includes millions of multi-colored Christmas lights. There are hundreds of gorgeous lighted displays as well as the animated scenes. As the grand finale to the journey, your ticket also includes a trip to Inspiration Tower where you can ride glass elevators up 230' for a Santa's eye view of the lights from above. There are terrific holiday shopping and delicious goodies too - like plenty of hot chocolate!
