Traffic on highway 76 can be very slow at times. The worst times are when the shows are starting (7:00 ish) and over (10:00 ish). Over the years they have built traffic relief routes so tourists and locals can avoid this. However, a lot of tourists probably aren't aware of where they are or don't figure it out until it's time to go home.
The traffic relief routes are color coded on this map and there are signs around Branson marking the roads. The colors are red, blue, and yellow. Our Branson condos are located on the Yellow route (Green Mountain Drive) which parallels highway 76 most of the way around. Use this route to avoid heavy traffic. There are many places to cut back to highway 76 to get where you are going.
If you have never been to Branson then it's worth driving down highway 76 (The Strip) at least once. There is a lot to look at and you might find something to do that you were not aware of.

Ballparks of America has it first tournaments scheduled for the summer of 2016. They are converting the old Red Roof Mall into replica ballparks: Busch Stadium, Wrigley Field, Tiger Stadium, Fenway Park, and Ebbets Field. See their website here - http://www.ballparksofamerica.com/.
2021 Update - The Ballparks of America appear to be a big success. We have had more and more families from all of over the country stay in our condos while their sons participate in tournaments there. I added a few more recent pictures.
Our Branson condos are very close to Ballparks of America, less than 2 miles from the complex, so if you are coming for a tournament please give us a try! We have a grocery store 1/2 mile away, a nice outdoor pool, and many restaurants & Branson attractions nearby! See our condos here!

The ferris wheel from the Navy Pier in Chicago will be in Branson soon! It was disassembled and shipped to Branson and is in the process of being reassembled now. It will be located on the The Strip in Branson. See the whole story here.
We have had a website since we bought our first Branson condo in 2003, but it had become outdated, plus it wouldn't allow us to post our availability calendars. So we spent the time needed to develop this new site and we went live with it last week.
Guests can now see if a condo is available and can even book / reserve online if they prefer. We aren't trying to discourage phone calls though, feel free to call us anytime at 1-877-836-6745!
