Branson Named a Top 25 Travel Destination
Branson, Mo., has been named a top U.S. destination by the reviewers of the world’s largest travel site, TripAdvisor. The winners of the 2014 top spots were announced April 8 when the website released the results of the 6th Annual Travelers’ Choice™ awards for Destinations.
TripAdvisor used reviews on its website over a twelve-month period to determine the rankings. Branson came in at number 19; ranking higher than destinations such as Myrtle Beach, South Carolina and Nashville, Tennessee.
“It’s fun to see our little town listed among all the popular cities on this list, but TripAdvisor regulars are experts at discerning what it takes to be a great destination and not necessarily a big one,” said Ross Summers, President of the Branson/Lakes Area Chamber of Commerce and Convention & Visitors Bureau. “Some people might be surprised to see Branson on the list of 25 best American destinations, but we’re not. Branson has been welcoming folks for more than 100 years and it is our great hospitality that keeps them coming back.”
