Why I Love the Ozarks

Fall in the Ozarks Hills - one of the great reasons to call Branson home!

Fall in the Ozarks Hills – one of the great reasons to call Branson home!

I don’t want to be super cheesy here, but sometimes I’ve gotta gush over the place I call home. I grew up in the plains of northwest Oklahoma, where the wind truly does come sweeping down the plains. All the time. Night and day. There’s little relief down in a valley or among the trees because, well… there are no valleys and there are very few trees! When I came to Branson for the first time in 1997, I knew there was something special about it. It immediately became home to me. After 15 years of living here, I can list some of the things that made me fall in love with the Ozark hills – and what made me want to stay here forever.

The Beauty
This one is obvious. Some call them the Ozark Mountains, but I’ve met many folks from places like Colorado that come and say “Where are those mountains that everyone talks about??” Well, all I can say is whoever first called them mountains must’ve been from the plains of northwest Oklahoma! The trees and rolling hills that are the signature of the Ozarks change in appearance with the seasons in an amazing way. There’s a great view at every turn that locals sometimes take for granted. I know when winter turns to spring, and summer turns to fall, I’m amazed once again at the brilliant colors that blankets the rolling hills. Cheesy, I know, but true!

The Seasons
I love summer. Well, spring too. And fall. Oh, yes, and winter. That’s what’s so great about the Ozarks. We get a good taste of all the seasons. Summer gets hot – time for the lake! Spring and fall are just perfect. We eat on the back deck a lot during the spring and fall. Winter gets just cold enough to maybe enjoy a snow or two, but never so much that you are sick of it. It seems that just when I get weary of one season, the next arrives.

The Lakes
Our area lakes have something for everyone. Table Rock Lake is great for fishing, swimming, and water sports. Taneycomo’s cold water is the perfect environment for trout – some of the best trout fishing in the world. Bull Shoals is secluded and quiet. All of them contribute so much the natural beauty of the region.

The Lifestyle
For over 100 years, people have come to the Branson area for vacation. Long before music shows or theme parks even existed. Even before Table Rock lake was created, these hills attracted people looking for a retreat. When my family needs to get away, we can enjoy the view from our back deck, drive 5 minutes for a round of miniature golf, or be floating in a cove on the lake after just a short drive. Yes, it is like a permanent vacation. No wonder people come to visit over and over again, only to end up calling the Ozarks home at some point.

The People
Everyone is so darn nice! Maybe it’s because we are all on permanent vacation! I hear it time and time again. Just pull up to an intersection with bumper-to-bumper traffic… It’ll only be a minute before someone will wave you in.

When you decide you’re ready to call these hills home (or home away from home), I would be honored to help you find your little slice of the Ozarks. You can call me any time. 866-264-2803 x 703.
