Featuring "chef-driven barbeque," Q39 recommends its pork belly and sausage corn dog to get you started and then sug- gests the pulled pork taQos with jalapeno-cilantro slaw and chipotle mayo or the flavorful burnt-end brisket burger. Natural Wonders Bluff Dwellers Cavern and Browning Museum in Noel is a sight that many people across the country and internationally travel many miles to experience. With some of the most beautiful natural wonders that can be found in Missouri, this cave reveals an underground world filled with one- of-a-kind rock formations, such as the 10-ton balanced rock and the 75-foot rimstone dam – one of the longest rimstone dams in the state's caves – and creatures, including salamanders, bats and albino crayfish. If you're feeling adventurous, take advantage of the gem-panning experience: sift through a bag of sand, rocks, gems, minerals and fossils using water at the sluice then take your treasures home. Discover the history of the cave and its many artifacts and fossils in the Browning Museum, included in the price of admission. Roadside Attractions Route 66 attractions abound in the town of Springfield, the birthplace of the iconic Americana route. Visit the Route 66 Car Museum and see a multitude of classics from early Brass Era cars to ones used in the movies, including the Gotham Roadster. Explore the Air and Military Museum of the Ozarks as you take off on an imaginary flight in a real Cobra helicopter, then take in a band or show at the historic Gillioz Center for Arts and Entertainment, which opened in 1926. n City Map Location Page Branson ....................
