Good evening -
My husband and I are heading to Branson in August this year with our almost 3 year old. We will be staying a night in Hot Springs on the way to Branson. The day we leave Hot Springs we are looking for a nice place to stop on the way to Branson. Any scenic towns? Any recommended places to eat? We like hiking as well so wasn't sure about a short hike or cave along the way that might be interesting. We are staying at Petit Jean State Park for a couple of nights on a the way back from Branson so that would not be an option heading to Branson.
Thanks for any tips or suggestions!
