A Memo from Main Street Marina Regarding Coronavirus (COVID-19) [Updated 3/20/2020]

Main Street Marina, Lake Taneycomo, Branson Missouri

March 20, 2020

The Paddlewheel, Main Street Lake Cruises and the entire Main Street Marina family want to thank all of you for supporting us during this difficult time, and also coming together to support the Branson business community at large.

As always, our number one priority is the health, safety and happiness of our guests, employees and their families. With that in mind, we’ve decided to temporarily suspend all operations now through May 18 in order to join our fellow citizens and Branson businesses in the effort to fight the spread of the Covid-19 virus.

This decision was made carefully, as a work family, after much internal discussion with management, staff and after consulting with the appropriate local experts and authorities.

Again, our number one priority is your health and happiness. To us, you’re more than just patrons, you’re friends and family. We look forward to seeing all your smiling faces again as soon as this is all over. Until then, stay safe, wash those hands, and don’t lose that #LakeAttitude

Branson, Missouri – A Brief History

The Chicago Tribune awarded Branson with the moniker, “The way America should be”. This was several years ago but Branson is still a place where people flock to get a glimpse of when life was quieter and more relaxing. It’s a place where people are friendly and families can come and enjoy themselves together. There is something for everyone here!The Shepherd of the Hills is a large part of Branson History

With a general store and post office established in 1882 by Reuben Branson, the fledgling community got its start. The town was incorporated in 1912 just as the Powersite Dam was being finished; creating Lake Taneycomo. From then on Branson continued to grow into something special.

Harold Bell Wright wrote the book “The Shepherd of the Hills ” which was released in 1907. This book spurred many to come see the area Bell spoke of to get a feel of that Ozark tradition. It became the focal point of a show first done by the “Old Mill Theater” which became known by the same name as the book. That show has been in production for over 50 years.

More on The History of Branson

The Many Facets of Branson

The 76 Strip is part of Branson's historyAs shows popped up on Highway 76, the “strip”, people continued to flock to Branson. However, it isn’t just shows they come for. Many people come to Branson to take in the beauty of the Ozarks and enjoy the allure of the lakes and trails and campgrounds. In addition, Branson has become one of the largest destinations for military reunions. Also, many families come from miles around to bring their kids to sporting events and camps. All of this makes Branson a go-to location for the first time and return visitors alike.

There are so many things to do in Branson, it is no wonder that we are the third-largest drive-to destination in the United States.

Main Street Marina – Part of  a Great Branson Tradition

Located on the banks of Lake Taneycomo, Main Street Marina has become one of those important locations; anchoring one end of the Branson Landing. As the Branson Landing has become one of the many popular places to be in Branson, Main Street Marina sits proudly near the Lake Taneycomo Bridge on the Landing.  It’s a great place to take in the beauty of the Ozark Mountains and enjoy that famous Branson hospitality!
