    I think it would be a coin flip between Memphis, Tulsa, Little Rock, St. Louis or Kansas City. I would think they all have interesting and nice drives.

    The Branson/Springfield Airport is the closest airport of any size at all. You could rent a car there and drive to Branson. Is is about 45 minutes from the airport to Branson.

    Just a warning. Any road I've ever taken to Branson is extremely hilly and curvy. If you get motion sickness, take your medication with. Other than that, yes, it's a beautiful drive from almost any direction.

    Fly into Harrison Arkansas. It's probably the cutest airport I've ever been to, it's cheap, and right down the road about 1 hr to Branson.
