Online Communities

Branson Missouri has two major interactive online communities. For Branson, Getaway Saver is a highly trafficked website. The site is run by the “Groman” clan with. Gary, aka “the Seagull” makes regular posts streaming Branson Courier info. Getaway Saver derives revenue from time-share companies, ticketing services and third party advertising. The site is G-rated and is moderated for negative information. Distasteful or harsh posts are pulled quickly. The site does have a debate area enabling open dialogue on topics that might be unwelcoming to a light hearted surfer looking for the scoop on Branson entertainment. Getaway Saver has plans for expansion as an area guide created by its community of users. The forums at Getaway Saver is a great source of information in tune with the Branson Spirit!

The second major interactive community is Highway-13 and focuses on Stone County. The sites home page carries an area paper as well. A selected few Stone County Gazette articles are posted weekly and serves as the sole digital medium for the newspapers distribution. Highway 13 is a route running parallel to Highway 65. The Highway connects major cities in the Branson area including Kimberling City and Branson West. The site is owned and operated by proprietor Grant Terry. The most popular area of the site are the highway cams where traffic flowing from Silver Dollar City can be see with minimal delay. This site is a great resource for a no holds barred view on Branson particularly the West Side. Check out HWY-13!
