Where are some nice places to go if i take a trip out there?
Thanks, Dawg, you are so right about going OT - I do that in my daily life as well!

I always tell people to visit Eureka Springs, up near the border, just because I think it's funky and fun - but what is it you like? Eureka is very artsy, with a wide spread of people who live there. On a little west but still very close to the MO border is some of the most gorgeous lakes - then there's the bath houses in Hot Springs - if you're political or just like a good belly laugh, you might enjoy the Clinton Mobile Home - the Little Rock epicenter has been revitalized and is just way, way cool. I'd just drive, personally - that's one reason I love Arkansas - completely flat delta and the only thing I know as a mountain within a couple of hours of each other...it's a state I never tire of!

if planning on taking a trip to arkansas go where the scenery is, and the places to find that are the northern to north western areas of the state. Some of the prettiest spots in arkansas to me is in the ouachita region around hot springs and mena. If you want to go north i would suggest go through high way 7, (very beautiful in my opinion) then you will come up to a big town known as harrison which has good eating places and other great things to offer. Hope i have been some help.

Northern Arkansas is pretty cool. I live in Camden and this place is running down hill. I heard they are trying to build a resort right outside of town but it could be a few years if they ever start. Personal I'm going to leave this place soon even though all my family is here I want to leave if that tells you anything about the town. And as far a nice trip to Harrison that would be good but not if your black. Its dying out but there is still racism in some towns. But yeah if I was to move here I would pick some place up north cause like half the pop. lives in the cites of Little Rock,Fayetteville,and I guess Ft. Smith so those would be nice places or the resort towns. Hope this helps somebody.

Exactly, stay away from south Arkansas.

BAck to the topic.

Everything said about Arkansas and regional belonging has been said. You can't easily categorize it into one neat box. Even the landscapes are radically different from each other (even more so than Louisiana and Florida!).

Appropriately enough, centrally located Pulaski County (Little Rock) seems a blend of all things Arkansan.

To answer the original question in this post, well my dear technically, anything below that good ole Mason-Dixon line is consisdred the south. Also, ask any arkansan. But In agreeance with a cpl of other posts, yes you get a different "feel" when you are in different regions, which is pretty cool. But when you strip all the implanted people away, good ol Arkansas is just a south as Mississippi, Louisiana, Oklahoma, etc........

Default Southern Without a doubt

Bill Clinton
Mike Huckabee
Johny Cash
Little Rock Central High School (look it up)

What do these words have in common?

SOUTHERN

Heck, Missouri has a hard enough time not being included in the South (it's Midwestern) let alone Arkansas not being southern.

Northwest Arkansas is Midwestern, South and East Arkansas are Southern, and West/Central Arkansas are a mix of Southern and Midwestern. To me, at least.
