I just got back from the memorial day weekend trip to Branson. I must say the traffic is just awful. You would think they could do Something about it one of these years.
We stayed at The village out at Indian point where Silver Dollar City is, The village has some nice Condos but any place out there is a big problem because of all the traffic from Silver Dollar City. I took my Son and daughter inlaw fishing on Saturday Morning.I told my wife I would come back to pick her up at lunch time . I called her at twelve and said I am on my way. I arrived a hour and 15 minutes latter. I got stuck in the traffic of people going to silver Dollar city abot 8 miles of 2mph traffic. We went to eat that night we were going to Landrys Sea food house .Guess what ? We got stuck in the traffic of People leaveing Silver Dollar City.I guess Silver Dollar City owns The Indian point road because their employees stop the traffic so they can let their patrons out of their parking lot . So we finally make it to Landrys and I had a rude waiter .Won't be going back there and by the way they give french fries Instead of a baked patato .If you want a baked patato its a 1.99 more. That got my goat .
Also they make one salad for the whole table to share .
Well anyways we leave there and get stuck in traffic again finally we get out of town and are driving towards Indian point when I get in bumper to bumper traffic again about 5 miles from the condo. I'm thinking its 11:00pm . We finally get up to where the problem is . Its the Sherrifs department blocking the road with a sobriety Check point looking for drunk drivers.
Needless to say If you want to avoid traffic stay in town .The lakes beautiful but the traffic will drive you nuts.
