It comes down to different strokes for different folks. The people we know usually travel/cruise a bit in the winter, but not a 5 month migration. Those that do shutter their doors consider Branson their summer home and elsewhere their permanent home. It must not be about climate as all go to colder locales.
Branson has become a much more active place over the past few years. Not the ghost town it once was. One such activity is the Neighbors and friends organization. The link below explains the various activities available and the mission of the group. The bulk of the activities are in the fall though spring. My DW loves it. At times I think she is fulltime.
