    Branson is an excellent place to live and visit. People love it because of the family friendly environment, and the appreciation shown to veterans for their service. There are countless things to do, including water parks, entertainment shows, shopping, restaurants, and the lake all right at your fingertips! I was blessed to grow up in this town and look forward to see it become even more welcoming and enjoyable for guests in the future!

    Branson is a fairly large community and has amazing shows to offer. I enjoy the scenery of the lake and trees and the beauty of nature in some parts of Branson. Most areas of Branson, such as old downtown Branson, are filled with shops, shows, and lots of traffic and small parking. It is filled with various job opportunities that are mostly available in the summer time. Branson offers two theme parks including Silver Dollar City, which offers roller coasters and other various rides, and White Water, which is a water park. Branson is a great area with lots of entertainment.

    Branson is a beautiful family town nestled between Tablerock lake and lake Taneycomo. There are many family-oriented activities, shopping, and entertainment options. It is a great place to get away or in which to reside.
