K-Kauai is the happiest place on earth, next to Disneyland of course. Link year is a phenomenal place with an even better atmosphere.  The weekend life here in Branson, Missouri never ceases to amaze me.  Some weekends I like to kick back, relax, and enjoy the occasional movie in the Ala Moana.  On those relaxing nights we will get a group of guys and girls in a couple of cars to drive on over to the lookout.  The lookout is always a good choice when one is having trouble finding something to do.  It is about a ten minute drive and it is definitely worth it. 

For those who like to spend money, The Landing is a great place to go.  The Landing consists of a multitude of stores that are all in an outdoor mall. I have been down there multiple times to get something to eat with a group of people.   If you have ever been to Branson, or anywhere remotely near it, then you know that there is almost an endless supply of entertainment.  Shawn “Cash Money” Cash states “I have only been to three shows here (Yakov the comedian, Joseph, and Dixie Stampede) and I liked them all but my favorite by far was Dixie Stampede, mainly for the food.” 

The good thing about Link Year is you get a ton of discounts so things are not nearly as expensive as people might think. For those few who like to take small, bite sized road trips, Springfield is the place for you. Springfield has a ton to offer, including Chick-Fil-A which is the main reason people in Link Year make the drive.  

The thing that we do most at Link Year is go to Sonic...yes, I said Sonic. I'm not sure what it is about Sonic that draws us students, but it is like moths to a lamp. Sonic is the heart and soul of weekends in Branson. Now, in the famous words of Forrest Gump “That's all I got to say about that.”
