Your family is trying to plan a reunion. But… not every single one of your many aunts, uncles, and cousins will fit in your house. Plus… there’s not really anything particularly entertaining about your hometown. You’re getting the feeling that this reunion is going to be more stressful than you had hoped. Before you get a headache, take a look at what Branson has to offer your family.
