Known as the “family-friendly Las Vegas,” Branson, Mo., is home to many touristy spectacles: a life-size replica of the Titanic, horse dancers frolicking in Dolly Parton’s Dixie Stampede, a Hollywood-esque cracked building housing Ripley’s Believe It or Not, and an endless parade of country music shows. But the No. 4 most popular attraction on review site TripAdvisor.com is a tour of the College of the Ozarks (C of O), where gawkers can snap photos of respectful college students doing honest work in exchange for a tuition-free education.
