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:

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!

Enjoy!

    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).

      erc,

       

      This is good stuff!

       

      The Cleverly's were not there this past week!

       

      They look and sound very interesting.

       

      Thanks!  Will have to catch them in another city!
