Branson, Missouri, is a popular tourist destination because of its many malls, attractions, restaurants, and more. But finding family activities that are also sensory-friendly can sometimes be a challenge in a new area.
My World ABA has compiled a list of sensory-friendly activities for families in Branson, Missouri.
Silver Dollar City
Branson’s world-famous theme park, Silver Dollar City, can be a busy place. This is why the park has incorporated two family calming rooms complete with low lighting, sensory toys, and soft places to rest.
