Take a mid-afternoon drive east down the Country Music Boulevard in Branson, Missouri — the live music show capital of the world. We start the drive having just left Silver Dollar City, merging onto Missouri State Highway 76 towards Branson.
Our first interchange, shortly after we start, is with Missouri Highway 265 which will take you down to Table Rock Lake State Park and ultimately back to US Highway 65, just south of Branson.
Entering Branson, we cross the Shepherd of the Hills Expressway and begin driving the Branson Strip — a stretch of road that is about 4 miles in length yet, even on a good day, will take at least 20 minutes to traverse. Someone at MoDOT thought it would be cute to cram 10,000 cars down a 2-lane highway 4 times a day at least. But I digress. The Branson Strip is where you will find most anything and everything in Branson. Granted, some of the newer stuff is on the Shepherd of the Hills Expressway, but the vast majority is on 76.
At the Titanic museum, we cross Missouri Highway 165 which will take you back to Table Rock Lake and to MO-265. Continuing east, we pass more theaters and restaurants before finally reaching U.S. Highway 65 — the main highway in and out of Branson.
Passing US-65, we start down the mountain into historic Downtown Branson where we meet probably the longest (and not properly working) stoplight in existence. Most of the lights in Branson are long, but this one really takes the cake. You will see. At this light, Missouri Highway 76 (and US-65B) turn right leaving us on an local street for the remainder of the video. We continue straight down Main Street until the end of the road at Branson Landing Road and the Branson Landing.
