The downtown district actually resides on the eastern side of the city and away from the geographical city center, next to the White River and Lake Taneycomo. On the western side of the city is the ever-popular Branson Theater District, which is connected to downtown via West Main Street and the West 76 Country Boulevard.
Camping is a big thing in Branson and each year, thousands of eager campers head to the surrounding campsites, often with their giant RVs. During the busy summer and fall seasons, the roads are often laden with traffic, meaning that getting about the city is often faster on foot than by car.
