I may be making a move to Branson and am making a trip out there to spend some time checking out different areas to potentially live in. I would be renting with a budget of $700/mo. I've pretty much ruled Springfield out after hearing about drug problems and crime from people who lived/live there. It's also too far away. I'd like to be within 15-20 minutes driving distance of central Branson-the closer the better. I'm looking at Forsyth, Hollister, Merriam Woods or downtown Branson areas. My main concern is crime. Are these areas okay in that regard and are there drug/meth problems like I've heard are in Springfield? I found a place in Forsyth and in Merriam Woods within my budget - are these areas okay these days? Thanks.
