There is a variety of things to see and do for all While in Branson and the surrounding area. Naturally, there are plenty of shows and entertainment:
Jim Stafford had a fine show!
Jim performs his famous Western song, "Cow Paddy"!
A special place to visit is "The College of The Ozark's". It is a conservative, "Hands on" school that has a wonderful history!
This sculpture was in their museum and was impressive. It depicts Adams, Franklin, and Jefferson praying for "Divine Intervention"!
This one is for you "NUhusker" and other Vet's! A museum entrance with "Lest We Forget" at the entrance!
Korean Vet's are "Saluted"! The students have created a Map of Korea, with historic war notations from.
The lobby of the "Welcome area", is pretty spectacular! It is all free, including the gift shop!
This place is worth a visit!
The park located at The Bagnel Lake Dam is next to the Trout Hatchery, and worth a drive!
I enjoyed all the shows we attended, Elvis, Legends, Jim Stafford etc but my actual favorite was Paul Harris. He's an entertaining comedian that also has a bluegrass band. I coached with a guy whose father was a bluegrass hall of famer, so I grew up enjoying it at the Birchmere in Arlington, Va. (The Seldom Scene et al.) and these guys are good and clever - that's the band's name, The Cleverlys. Check 'em out below, they play regular bluegrass, but also Top 40 type hits in the bluegrass style - watch Beyonce's Put a Ring on It to get a taste, it was a lot of fun.
We also enjoyed a drive up to Inspiration Point (a viewing tower) which was especially nice at Christmas combined with the festival of lights drive and the town has a couple of wineries with tastings which were enjoyable. Plenty to do (and that's why going when it wasn't crowded made it such a nice time).
