Our first stop on this vacation was Branson Missouri. A bit of a lie as we stopped for a car race in South Dakota on the way down but, that was pretty much a waste of time. It was the first time I walked out of a race half way through. Branson is very close to the Arkansas border. It's known for it's many theatres.

Stillwaters Resort, just outside Branson Missouri. Being off season renting a condo here was way cheaper than the cost of a cheap motel. The resort was on a very beatiful property with all the amenities one would expect. Many pools, beach, boat rentals, fishing, and BBQ/picnic facilities. This shot was one of the picnic areas just outside our unit.

The Blues Brother's police car outside The Legends Theatre in Branson. Legends is a well known Theatre in Branson and Las Vegas. Shows are a variety of impersonators (Legends in Concert). Not the greatest but alright for a matinee show.
