I have always wanted to go to Branson, Missouri for the winter holidays. Silver Dollar City has a great Christmas festival. The problem with visiting Branson, Missouri is that there are not many dog friendly places for tourists to visit, especially in winter. If we go the Branson, Missouri for the Christmas festival, Maya will not be able to go.
Maya can, however, stay in a dog friendly hotel. There are a number of dog friendly hotels in Branson, Missouri. I can always count on the Red Roof Inn allowing Maya to stay. Days Inn, Quality Inn, and La Quinta are also usually dog friendly.
There is an especially nice dog friendly place to stay, the Emory Creek Victorian Bed & Breakfast and Gift Shop. This bed and breakfast also has a special pet friendly room called the Dogwood Room (pictured above). It has its own private porch and overlooks the gardens. Talk about a pampered pup!
Since it is winter, there won’t be many outdoor activities anyway so Maya will be perfectly comfortable in a hotel room for a while. We can still take Maya for walk. And we can even take her walking at the Shoppes at Branson Meadows. Maya probably won’t be allowed in any of the stores, but she will be allowed in the common areas of the mall.
Also near the mall is a Humane Society Thrift Store. It is a thrift store like any other thrift store with clothes, furniture, etc. for people. But it benefits the humane society.
I can also take Maya with me to the Stone Hill Winery. She’s not allowed inside but she can be on the patio while I taste test a glass of hot mulled Hermannsberger wine.
I wish there were more dog friendly places to go in Branson, Missouri but this will have to do. At least there are a number of pet friendly hotels and Maya won’t be completely bored.
