Local transportation in Branson?????

We will be visiting Branson in early May, husband/wife ages 65.

Has anyone tried to "do" Branson WITHOUT a car????

Is it necessary to have an automobile. We are aware that there is transport via shuttles,cabs to shows, etc. but apparently no local public transportation system, ie. busses, etc. Is it absolutely necessary to have a vehicle since we will like to go someplaces, shops, restaurants, etc. besides the entertainment theaters? Need information to decide if we need rental vehicle. We fly in to Springfield/Branson.

Thanks for the information.

Springfield, MO

Yes, you will definitely, absolutely, 100% NEED a rental car to get around. There isn't a public transit system - Branson is still a small, midwestern town in many ways.
