Just in case anyone is wondering, the picture of me at the top of the page is on a relatively new zip line in the north part of Branson. For a quick getaway Branson can't be beat. From our home it's about 5.5 hours. There are plenty of shows to choose from. One of our favorites is the Dolly Parton Dixie Stampede. Another of our favorite spots is Silver Dollar City, just outside Branson. There you can listen to music, ride the rides, watch crafts being made, watch a show, shop, or eat. The saloon show is always pretty good, corny, but good.
