Hi,

I drove through your state coming back to PA from Colorado last year because I wanted to see Arkansas.

You have a very beautiful state.

I thoroughly enjoyed the beauty of the landscape and the hospitality of the people who lived there.

Thank you for providing me such a heart warming experience.

Well, Julian - thank you! Wow - it is SO NICE to hear people speak on such a positive note about our beautiful state. We have much to be proud of and much to be grateful for.

Thank you for taking the time to post - now get the word out there that Arkansas is fabulous...oh, wait - maybe no - don't want everyone finding out what a hidden gem this is

And thank you for enjoying our wonderful state. I have lived in 8 states in my many years (we will leave it at that) every state has its beauty, every state has good people, but for us, AR is the perfect place. And let me add, your state is pretty darn breath taking in many ways.

Ditto the OP. We visited in '09 and spent a week exploring from Mountain Home to Norfork to Jasper to Ponca. Beautiful mountains, great streams and rivers...hope to live there one day.

I agree completely on this topic! I visit White River once a year to camp and just LOVE it there. Always catch so many trout, and the people are so friendly. I've yet to have a bad experience in Arkansas, and the views are just amazing.

Thanks for the positive statement; too many people have no clue what AR is all about. We were at DFW a few weeks ago, waiting for our flight to XXA. A young man behind us was talking to a middle aged women: she asked him where he lived and he said NWA. Her comment, why would you want to live in AR? I turned around and said "and why not?" Can you believe it? Her comment was, well I have never been to AR, I have never even been through the state, I just don't understand why anyone would want to live there? At that point it was time to board the plane thus the conversation ended...

It was time for a "bless your heart, y'all just drop on by some time!"

"Bless your heart" - the best line EVER.
