BRANSON, MO, March 8, 2013 — The words “Now here’s a place that just gets better with ageâ€¦.Storied theaters, hair-raising thrill rides and serious shopping make this Missouri city one you’ve got to see,” provide the lead into a Branson feature in the March issue of Southwest Airlines in-flight magazine, “Spirit.” The feature is divided into two distinct parts in the magazine, an excellent piece entitled “Your Adventure in Branson” written by Amanda Gleason, and a pieceentitled “Life Adventure in Branson” composed entirely of pictures and quotes from “some of the city’s savviest locals” telling “the enticing story of what life is like in the ‘Las Vegas of the Ozarks.'”
On the evening of March 7, Bridget McBride, Senior Account Manager forÂ Pace Communications, who publishes “Spirit” under a contract with Southwest Airlines, was an honored guest at an event celebrating the feature and hosted by Main Street Marina aboard its 100 foot luxury yacht, the Landing Princess at the Main Street Marina. McBride said that the Branson feature is part of the magazine’s “Adventure In” where, each month, they select one city that Southwest flies into and describe “four unique adventures that can really only be found in that particular city.” She pointed out that the series has been going on for several years and that, to date, Branson’s “Adventure In” feature is one of the largest they have ever published.
In the feature, Lianne Milton, President of Branson.Com and the Branson Tourism Center said, “I’m sure that everyone will find an adventure they weren’t expecting in Branson.” From its fishing on Table Rock Lake; Silver Dollar City and its new Outlaw Run world breaking wooden coasterÂ to the Titanic Museum Attraction, Main Street Lake Cruises, Historic Downtown Branson, Branson’s shows and so much more, the feature presents some of those potential adventures, along with conveying the spirit, fun and excitement Branson offers, to Southwest Airline passengers in a graphic, unique and interesting way.
Branson is filled with so many things for people to do that, like many people, the feature refers to it as the “Las Vegas of the Ozarks.” In terms of family entertainment, adventure and things to do that is true, but as Dr. Rich Makuch, Owner of the “Table 22” restaurant said, “Behind the bright lights and whirl of theme park rides, Branson is a small town community with a big heart.” Jerry Emery, CEO of Angel Inn and other Branson lodging establishments just might have expressed the heart and spirit of what makes Branson such a special place when he said, “We believe that a great vacation enhances lives and blesses souls long after you’ve returned home.”
