Well, Cotter has like 900 people, so they don't have a whole lot of stores, restaurants, etc, but it's only about 5 minutes to Flippin and about 15 minutes to Mountain Home, both of which are a little bigger. Cotter does have a couple of restaurants, a gas station, a bunch of little antique shops, normal small town stuff like that.

Gassville is a little larger, but not by much. They are about 10ish minutes from MH, and have a few restaurants (McDonalds, Sonic, A &W, LJS, a Mexican restaurant, a barbeque place, a local fave burger place) and a grocery store, a dollar general, and two gas stations. A few more small antique places.

Mountain Home has the closest movie theater. They actually have two...I used to work at one of them, so I'm a little biased towards it, but they both show most popular movies that are out right now, and some more indie stuff. MH also has several restaurants, a walmart, a tj maxx, a maurices, and stuff like that. It's a small city, but not bad.

I grew up in Cotter, went to school in Cotter, but worked from the time I was 16 til I moved away for college (and when I would come back in the summers and winters) in Mountain Home. It's not a bad commute, and I'm sure utilities aren't crazy in Cotter or anything, although I've never paid them. I think you need to be a little more specific about what "worth living in" means to you. If you want a lot of shopping and dining options, or a big city feel, then you should obviously not move to rural north Arkansas. But they're both good towns.

Cotter is an awesome place to enjoy the White River. We usually stay at a campground on the river between a railroad bridge and the Cotter Bridge. We always take tons of photos and hire a guide to take us trout fishing. Last time I got a trophy-sized rainbow trout and since we always catch-and-release, I got a neat little pin from the guide. It is proudly displayed next to the photo of me and the fish.
