My Winery Essentials

Growing up in Springfield, I have a pretty good grasp on the best spots in the area.

Living alongside “The Birthplace of Route 66” makes the 417 a total foodie’s heaven on earth, which makes it tricky to choose where to dine with so many great options.

After hearing so much hype about Bear Creek, I just had to check it out myself.

Planning your trip to Branson? Visiting the Big Cedar grounds is a must! I’m obsessed with Cedar Creek Spa.

Or if you’re looking for family fun activities, I love the Titanic Museum and the Dixie Stampede.

Food & Wine Selections

What I didn’t expect to find at Bear Creek, was some insanely delicious pizza!

I ordered the fresh and delicious “Bear Ass Pizza”. The prices are reasonable and the servings are huge.

Wine samples are offered, and you can enjoy a glass of your favorite for $6. My favorite wine is the Hillbilly Persuasion, which is a nice light crisp wine, close to a Chardonnay.
