Branson is a town filled with oversized wackiness

Sweetums and I had heard Branson, Mo., was sort of like Pigeon Forge – home to all kinds of shows and tacky tourist attractions. We decided to stop by since it was close to one of our destinations, Eureka Springs, Ark.

We weren’t disappointed in its tackiness. There was plenty of fun weirdness to go around, including the World’s Largest Toy Museum, which I’ll post about later in the week.

For this post, I am featuring photos of 10 oversized items we came across in Branson. Enjoy!
