Description
Inspiration Tower Photos (5)

Gaze out across the beauty of the Ozark Mountains from high atop Inspiration Tower, Branson's 230-foot-tall observation point.

This 'Landmark on the Horizon' is located at Inspiration Point at the Shepherd of the Hills Homestead, and was constructed in 1989 to celebrate the century anniversary of Shepherd of the Hills author Harold Bell Wright's first visit to the Ozarks.

During your visit to the tower, you can browse the gift shop and grab a quick snack at the concession area before ascending high to the top of the tower aboard incredible glass elevators. On a clear day, you'll be able to see more than 90 miles out into the horizon! The spectacular panoramic views from Inspiration Tower are unarguably the best in the Ozarks, so be sure to bring your camera to capture these images forever.

The Inspiration Tower weighs a total of 3 million pounds, cost around $1.5 million dollars to build, contains more than 92,000lbs of steel, and can withstand a consistent wind of 172mph or gusts reaching 224mph! A caravan of 43 concrete trucks filled the structure's foundation, which now contains five miles of rebar weighing 34.5 tons. The tower also contains over 4,400sqft of glass which is enough to fill one third of a stadium football field! Two glass elevators shuttle visitors to the large, enclosed observation deck.

This was so much fun for both me and my son. The best time to go is early in the morning because there is no crowds and you can take your time looking around.

The view was excellent from the top of the tower but as i don't zip line, this was of little interest to me.
