Branson is a very nice area with lots of shows. There are 10AM, 2PM and 8PM shows. It is typical to go to 2 or 3 shows a day. The main road has a lot of slow moving traffic but everyone is very nice and enjoying themselves. We stayed at the Chateau on the Lake which was about 15 minutes out of town and very relaxing. The views of the area are beautiful. The Table Rock Lake is a lot of fun, especially when you rent a pontoon boat.
