Midwest Living Magazine has placed Branson at the top of its list for Best Family Reunion Spot. Branson ranked five stars in the magazine’s categories of appeal, lodging choices, and planning help and three stars for location. Appeal was based on a family’s desire to go to a location. Location looked at convenience and proximity to major cities or airports. Lodgings checked the range of different types of lodging, while planning help took on the dedication of tourism office staff to help families plan their event.
The article said Branson has “lodgings for everyone,” that “music shows, Silver Dollar City theme park and Table Rock Lake bring travelers” to the area. The Branson Chamber of Commerce helps hundreds of families a year plan their reunions by collecting the group’s information and then sending the information to establishments that cater to reunions.
“We were so excited to see the March-April issue of ‘Midwest Living’ magazine highlighting family reunions,” said Lynn Berry, director of public relations for Branson Lakes Area Chamber of Commerce. “And we were so proud that Branson was selected as their top pick.”
