Review of Russellville, Arkansas

A great place to raise kids
Star Rating - 2/28/2007
We have lived in Russellvile for 11 years now and love it. The cost of living is low, but so are the wages. Even with a college degree you'd make more money elsewhere. I work in Conway, 45 minutes away, and the drive is worth living in a small town environment. It is a great place to raise kids. The elementary and middle schools are great, high schools are good. The water and air qualities are both great.

There are lots of recreational activities nearby: hunting, fishing, camping, canoeing, and hiking to name a few. There are four state parks within an hour's drive. There are several areas nearby for watersports. Little Rock is about 70 miles to the east and Fort Smith is 80 miles to the west.

Russelville is a college town - Arkansas Tech University is a great 4 year college that is currently experiencing expansion. Russellville is located in a dry county.
