AAA Editor Notes

Ride the Ducks departs from 2320 SR 76W, just w. of Green Mountain Dr., and from Branson Landing next to Famous Dave's. The 70-minute Table Rock Lake tour aboard an amphibious vehicle known as a duck cruises down the Strip to SR 165, heads south to Table Rock Dam and climbs off-road to the top of 1,325-foot Baird Mountain for a panoramic view of Table Rock Lake before entering the water where the Showboat Branson Belle is docked. The 70-minute Lake Taneycomo tour includes historic downtown and the College of the Ozarks and then splashes into Lake Taneycomo along Branson Landing. Each driver gives his or her own individual narration during the trip, making this a highly entertaining as well as informative Branson overview. It can get quite windy as the open-sided vehicle travels along the road; hold onto your hat.
