Motel Shaped Like a Riverboat (Gone)
We can't vouch for the caliber of the Riverboat Inn as a place to sleep, but we definitely recommend its exterior as a quasi-lifelike landlocked loggy replica of a Mississippi riverboat.
Unfortunately, a EF-2 tornado tore up the main drag in Branson in February 2012, and one casualty was the Riverboat Inn. In July, it was still a mess, with plastic tarps stretched over the damaged facades. It was later demolished.
