The two RV Gypsies travelled to Branson, Missouri
May 8 - 9 - 10, 2016

Karen Duquette felt like she should have her hands up in the air because so many of the roads were "roller coaster" roads.

Branson is a city in Stone and Taney Counties in the U.S. state of Missouri. Most of the city is in Taney County, with a small portion in the west extending into Stone County. Branson is in the Ozark Mountains. The community was named after Ruben Branson, postmaster and operator of a general store in the area in the 1880s.

Branson has long been a popular destination for vacationers from Missouri and neighboring areas. The collection of entertainment theaters along 76 Country Boulevard (and to a lesser extent along Shepherd of the Hills Expressway) including Dolly Parton's Dixie Stampede, has increased Branson's popularity as a tourist destination. Branson now draws visitors from all regions of the country, mostly by car or bus.

Below: A great mural on a building. Most of the time cars were parked in front of it, but eventually the two RV Gypsies drove by it when there were not any cars in front of the mural.

Below: Whipper-Snappers Restaurant and sign. The two RV Gypsies ate there and Karen Duquette got her "belated birthday lobster dinner / late Mother's Day dinner" all at once. It was "all you can eat lobster and buffet". The lobster was good, but it was slightly over-cooked, but Karen enjoyed it none-the-less. Lee does not eat lobster, but he enjoyed the buffet. Karen paid $40 for the lobster buffet, Lee only had to pay $20 because he does not eat lobster or crab legs. The Italian Margarita that Karen had was a bit weak.
