Living in Branson
Taken from Branson Area Chamber of Commerce:
Recognized as one of the most vibrant small communities in the country, Branson is an ideal place to raise a family, start a business or enjoy retirement. A healthy economy and moderate cost of living mean that those looking for a place to “Have It All” need look no further than the Branson/Lakes Area.
Branson, known as the “Live Music Show Capital of the World,” is one of the fastest growing areas in the country for retirees.
Ranked highly in studies commissioned by universities and private interest groups, Branson is cited for its unique combination of neon and nature. With a population of just over 7,400 in the city and 80,000 in the two-county area, Branson offers a sense of community; a small town with homespun family values that appeals to many who grew up during a simpler time. However, as one of the country’s leading entertainment destinations, these old-fashioned values are accompanied by an air of excitement.
