Review of Arkansas, Arkansas

Depends on where you live
Star Rating - 4/4/2017
I live in a small town at the very edge of Little Rock and I love where I live. Having said that, there are places in Arkansas (especially in LR) that I would not live, even if the rent was free. My small community is a truly ideal small town. My only complaint is the heat and humidity, which can be unbearable in the summer. A person can walk from their office to their car in the parking lot and need a change of clothes. It is REALLY unbearable, at sometimes 105+ and very high humidity. Winters are not horrible, with probably an average of 3 days per year of snow in central Arkansas.

BUT - there are some beautiful places for scenery, especially in the fall when the leaves are changing. We have really beautiful natural springs and lakes, as well as some really nice man-made lakes. If you enjoy hiking, mountain climbing, lake activities, etc., you will really enjoy it here. Unless heat bothers you. Then you might just want to vacation here in spring and fall.

I am thinking of moving with my family to Bella vista area .. I know this post was made a few years back. But in that area are there any good jobs that pay more than that of Indiana jobs, see my wife get 14.00 per hour and my self im on SS, and really dont get much in the way of that .. We are looking for a new fresh start and after hearing my uncle who in fact lives in the bella vista area, he loves it, talks about wanting us to move there and him helping us all find jobs, meaning my wife and our two boys and daughter with my mom his sister. and after my brother and father had passed away just last year and things being on the bad side for our family, i thought maybe a fresh start in a new town and new state is what we need ..

Looking for a place to ride my motorcycle and retire to. I live in Spring Hill Florida and want to escape the summer heat and humidity here so kinda disappointed in what you're saying of LR.

Hi Randall im in the same boat too, i am on a fixed income and finally about to get my bachelors and looking for a fresh start in a different state. I live in northern california and people up here would love if your from the south due to it being influence by a certain church, very republican, and all their is to do is go the the bars, the mall, hunt, hike, or fish. Not all of California is liberal like people think. Of course i am looking in parts of arkansas that are more of my political beliefs and have seem to find that if i live in pine bluff and work in little rock i could save money and be able to provide for myself. Is this accurate anyone or am i wrong and also when it comes to dating meet someone in their 20s to 30s who is that southern charm.
