We are bringing back our popular Branson trip in 2017 with Little Rock as our Gateway City to introduce many of you for the first time to the beautiful State of Arkansas.  All the wonderful attractions we have included in this tour serves as a bonus for the usual Branson-only tour that most tour companies offer – Unicorn Tours does it better!!
 
                                 Day 1 – Tuesday, October 10
Our flights are through Boston Logan (Southwest flights and times TBA – bag goes FREE with Southwest) and we’ll arrive in Little Rock, Arkansas by early-afternoon. Our first stop will be to tour the William Jefferson Clinton Presidential Library that features a recreation of the Oval Office during the Clinton Presidency.
 
Next we’ll visit the Little Rock Central High School National Historic Site Visitor Center for a film outlining the historic events that took place here during the turbulent early days of desegregation in our country.
 
The desegregation of Central High School in Little Rock, Arkansas, gained national attention on September 3, 1957, when Governor Orval Faubus mobilized the Arkansas National Guard in an effort to prevent nine African American students from integrating the high school. President Dwight D. Eisenhower took action against the defiant governor by simultaneously federalizing the Arkansas National Guard, and ordering one thousand troops from the US Army to oversee the integration. On September 25, 1957 the students, now known as the Little Rock Nine, entered Central High School, an academically renowned all white school. Despite suffering constant torment and discrimination from their classmates, eight of the nine students completed the school year at Central High School.

Our Welcome Dinner tonight will be held in an elegant Spanish-style mansion hosted by the proprietor himself who will take us on a tour of his spectacular home. Welcome Dinner – Overnight Holiday Inn, Little Rock, Arkansas
 
                                 Day 2 – Wednesday, October 11
After a hearty buffet breakfast, we’ll depart for Branson with a stop at Turpentine Creek. This refuge is a retirement home for big cats and other large animals abandoned by owners who bought them as “kittens” but were soon overwhelmed by their “adult” size. These animals are not wanted by zoos so are given to this “rescue zoo” as an alternative to euthanizing them.  Their mission is to take-in unwanted creatures so they can live out their lives in a caring environment. The collection of these beautiful large wild animals is amazing and makes for a very interesting and informative tour.

It’s only an hour drive to Branson and the Clarion Hotel where every room has a private balcony which will be our home for the next 4 nights. We’ll kick-off our stay with dinner at Buckingham’s before a night of great entertainment with The Presleys, Branson’s Original Show on the Strip.  This will be the first of 6 shows planned during our stay. Full Breakfast Buffet, D, 4-Nights Clarion Hotel, Branson, MO
 
                                 Day 3 – Thursday, October 12
A full breakfast buffet at Buckingham’s (with entertainment each morning!) will fortify you for our busiest day of shows starting with “All Hand on Deck” that gets members of the audience up on their feet with the lively patriotic tunes of the 1940’s that kept spirits high at home and on the front lines during WW II.
 
We’ll take a break between shows for a Pizza Lunch on the grounds of Branson’s newest attraction – the 1933 Chicago World’s Fair Ferris Wheel brought here and re-assembled to thrill Branson tourists. A ride to the top offers a fabulous panoramic view of the beautiful hills and lakes surrounding Branson.
 
Our afternoon show will take us back to the 50’s and 60’s through the high energy music and dance performance “Hot Rods & High Heels”.
 
You’ll be transported to “Italy” during our dinner tonight at Pasghettis before our last show of the day “Raiding the Vault”.  Branson’s newest show takes audiences on a journey through the greatest hits of country music’s most renowned favorites such as celebrated artists Conway Twitty, Patsy Cline, Johnny Cash, Buck Owens, Charlie Daniels Band, Willie Nelson, Waylon Jennings, Garth Brooks, Dolly Parton, Dwight Yoakam, George Strait, and many more.  Full Breakfast Buffet, Lunch, Dinner

We’ll all depart together for Downtown Branson and a relaxing cruise on Lake Taneycomo offering panorama views of the beautiful Ozark Mountains and a chance to see the diversity of local wildlife. Once back on land, the afternoon is at leisure where you’ll find many restaurants for lunch (on own), a scenic train ride, a water fountain show to music every 15 minutes and endless numbers of shops to find the perfect souvenir.  Be sure not to miss Dick’s Old Time 5 & 10 where you’ll find just about anything and have lots of fun looking for it!
 
A scrumptious Dinner Buffet is planned for tonight before an evening performance of the amazing Acrobats of China featuring the New Shanghai Circus. Known for their colorful costumes and daring feats, the Jinan Troupe is considered one of the most skilled and highly awarded Chinese acrobatic troupes. B, Buffet Dinner
 
                                 Day 5 – Saturday, October 14
We’ll spend this morning in beautiful and serene Dogwood Canyon where we’ll board a tram for a gentle journey through the canyon learning about the geology and wildlife from our local guide. The 2-hour excursion will take us past waterfalls, over stream beds, and through a herd of bison so have your cameras ready at all times!
 
There will be time for lunch (on own) in the lodge and visit the museum & gift shop before heading back to our hotel to refresh before dinner and our last show.
 
For tonight’s entertainment, we’ve saved the best for last! “The Duttons” have been repeatedly voted “Branson’s Best Show of the Year” and you’ll feel the same after spending an evening with this amazing extended family of talent from oldest (father and mother Dean and Sheila) to the youngest grandchild.  The seven siblings are expert musicians with several Julliard trained.  Mastering the violin runs through the family with drums, base, guitar and other instruments peppered in. Sheila introduces us to her brood throughout the show so by show’s end you feel like a member of the family! B, D
 
                                 Day 6 – Sunday, October 15
This morning we head back to Little Rock but not before spending a few hours in another Missouri town made famous for the natural hot springs for which the town was named. Hot Springs still has many of the beautiful Victorian bath houses that were built in the late 1880’s to pamper the wealthy visitors who flocked to the town to enjoy soaking in the rejuvenating waters.  During your free time, you may want to tour one of these architectural gems for a glimpse into life during the Victorian Age.
 
A little known fact is that Hot Springs was the spring training ground for our very own Red Sox team during the years Babe Ruth was a player.  In addition, the town was the winter hangout for the most notorious mobsters that terrorized the nation and each other during the 1920’s.  You may want to visit the Gangster Museum to learn about this unusual history where Al Capone, Machine Gun Kelly, Bonnie & Clyde etc. all took a vacation from killing each other while in Hot Springs where they dined, gambled and socialized together before going back to their usual rivalries.
 
We’ll arrive at our Little Rock hotel in time to freshen up before a fun evening at a popular local dinner theatre.  B, Dinner Theatre, Overnight Holiday Inn, Little Rock, AR
 
                                 Day 7 – Monday, October 16
This morning we make our way to the airport for our flight home with wonderful memories of time spent in Arkansas’s beautiful Ozark Mountains and knowing first hand why Branson is known as the “Show Capital of the World”!! B
