Why Choose Branson

ImageAnyone visiting here knows all too well what draws people to visit Branson is a unique combination of lifestyle options that keeps bringing more and more people year after year, to the area.

On every front, from quality of life and healthcare, overall cost of living and housing affordability, extraordinary recreation and spectacular entertainment, low crime and strong family values, the Branson region outpaces the national standards on every measurement.

Few areas in the country have the characteristics present in Southwest Missouri and we will not be able to keep it a secret for very long. These facts are what draws more than eight million tourists a year, and a growing number of them are electing to convert from visitor to resident, tourist to homeowner. Reinforced by articles in Time Magazine and Business Week citing Branson as one of the leading undiscovered retirement destinations, more and more visitors are electing to buy permanent residence or second homes in the area. With one in four retirees wanting some form of employment after retirement, Branson’s theaters, hotels, and restaurants which service the annual tourists provide ample opportunities for both full and part time employment. Combine that with the local recreation, lakes, golf and other leisure activities with very affordable housing and moderate climate year round, you start to see a place where everyone wants to visit the grandparents or enjoy family times at the vacation property.

One of the Branson area’s top active living Master-Planned Communities, The Communities at Branson Creek, has been awarded several national honors. The first in 2009, when designated as one of the Top 100 Master-Planned Communities in the United States, and in 2011 as one of the Top 50 Best Master-Planned Communities in the U.S. These awards help make The Communities at Branson Creek shine and attract the one in ten visitors that are considering retirement options in this region.

Those of us fortunate enough to already live in the Branson area enjoy everything the Ozarks has to offer each and every day.
