“Branson offers so many quality shows that it can sometimes be bewildering to decide which one(s) to pick,” said Preston Garrison, Director of Operations for the Branson Tourism Center, one of Branson’s largest providers of tourism services and information. “To help narrow things down a bit, we thought it would be interesting to ask those interacting with us on our Facebook page the question, “What would be your top two must see shows in Branson this year?”
