Branson is a city in Taney County, Missouri, named for Reuben Branson, town postmaster in the area in the 1880s. Called the “family-friendly Las Vegas” because of its numerous shows and attractions and flashy building decorations and neon lights, it offers a “strip” that draws people from far and wide. For those who choose to escape the glitz and glitter, Branson also offers a few natural attractions, in the form of three lakes, the world’s finest trout fishing, and recreational activities like hiking, hunting, and golfing, and water sports such as swimming, boating, and water skiing.
The state of Florida has much to offer visitors as well, with sunny skies, white sand beaches and turquoise waters, attractions such as a plethora of theme parks like Walt Disney World, Universal Studios, Islands of Adventure, Sea World, and Busch Gardens, and never-ending nightlife in Miami and the surrounding areas.
