I have never been to Branson, Missouri, but I have had so many people tell me it is a must-take trip! I have started trying to plan out where I want to go on vacations for 2022, and of course, Branson is very high on my list (along with New York City, and anywhere that has a sandy beach and delicious cocktails), in searching to learn more about Branson I stumbled upon this guy's YouTube video. The video was posted earlier this year on YouTube by the channel Wolters World and this is a legit channel with over 800,000 subscribers.

I really appreciated how this Wolters World guy isn't overall negative, the things I learned from him in this video would be to definitely avoid driving the strip during busy hours, the fact that there are places to stay around Branson and not just IN Branson, and then lastly I think he makes a great point when he says "Don't think you can escape the tourism" because that is what Branson is at its heart and soul it is a tourist destination.

Overall I really enjoyed how this video gave me some great things to think about in planning a trip to Branson but overall still made me really excited about making a trip there. Have you ever been to Branson? What would you avoid if you were telling people what not to do in Branson?
