Christmas Driving Tips

Planning on visiting Silver Dollar City during An Old Time Christmas®? Follow this helpful navigation guide to help you beat the traffic and maximize your time in the park!

Silver Dollar City Parkway is located directly off State Highway 76, west of the road’s intersections with two major state highways — 265 and 465 (the Ozark Mountain Highroad), plus other Branson attractions. Most of the vehicles headed to the park will be approaching from the east and turning left into the park, which can lead to congestion that impacts your time waiting to enter the parking lot.

We recommend using the following alternate routes to lessen your wait in traffic.

For guests coming from the Springfield area:

  • Take South Campbell Avenue (U.S. Route 160 East / State Highway 13 South) out of Springfield.
  • Follow U.S. Route 160 East / State Highway 13 South (dual-signed) toward Branson.
  • These two roads will split. Follow signs for State Highway 13 and continue heading South.
  • Turn left onto State Highway 76 in Branson West. Follow signs to Silver Dollar City.

For guests heading East on Interstate 44:

  • Take Exit 69 off Interstate 44 for the James River Freeway.
  • Exit the James River Freeway at South Campbell Avenue (U.S. Route 160 / State Highway 13).
  • Turn right at the light. Follow U.S. Route 160 East / State Highway 13 South (dual-signed) toward Branson.
  • These two roads will split. Follow signs for State Highway 13 and continue heading South.
  • Turn left onto State Highway 76 in Branson West. Follow signs to Silver Dollar City.

For guests heading West on Interstate 44:

  • Take Exit 82A off Interstate 44 for U.S. Route 65 South.
  • Take the exit for the James River Freeway.
  • Exit the James River Freeway at South Campbell Avenue (U.S. Route 160 / State Highway 13).
  • Turn left at the light. Follow U.S. Route 160 East / State Highway 13 South (dual-signed) toward Branson.
  • These two roads will split. Follow signs for State Highway 13 and continue heading South.
  • Turn left onto State Highway 76 in Branson West. Follow signs to Silver Dollar City.

For all guests:

  • In order to better accommodate guests during An Old Time Christmas, Silver Dollar City on select days will open an additional park entrance/exit in The Grand Exposition. On these days, guests who park in the 76, Bank and Gate 8 parking lots will enter the park through The Grand Exposition — and must also exit through The Grand Exposition to catch a complimentary parking shuttle back to their vehicle. Guests who park in all other parking lots will still enter and exit the park through the Main Entrance. 
  • Just remember: the entrance you come in is the exit you must leave through!

Silver Dollar City's turnstiles open one hour before the park's operating hours. Arrive early!

You can also get directions by using your car's GPS system or on your phone. Just type in your destination as 399 Silver Dollar City Parkway, Branson, MO 65616.
