Branson as a destination is so much more than music. Our area contains gorgeous scenery and rolling hills of the Ozark Mountains, which geologists believe were once a very tall plateau left behind after a shallow sea and swampland receded. Over hundreds of millions of years, gradual erosion left behind the current landscape filled with hills, valleys, rivers, and caves.
Many places in and around Branson take advantage of the rolling hills to give us humans an adrenaline rush. Many group tour leaders talk about how they have active groups and love adventure-based travel.
Branson offers enormous opportunities for adventure seekers!
