Yeah, hot is hot anywhere. It didn't seem ta bother me in Tucson, why should it bother me in NWA or Hot Springs? Today I will put a job application or maybe two in for jobs in my field in Arkansas and see what kind of a response I get. Who knows, maybe one will bite and we'll get ta move to AR sooner than later in retirement. My job here in SW Kansas isn't proving fruitful for me and I need ta get out of it right quick here.

Good luck, keep us posted. Yes, if you could handle the summer heat in Tuscan you will be fine here.

We lived in Hot Springs VILLAGE for nine years and loved it. The only reason we moved back to Texas is my husband got very sick and we didn't like the dentists or doctors in the village. But the climate was wonderful (three days of snow per winter) as was the wildlife (deer in your driveway in the fall and winter and not scrawny ones, either).
I want to say that massage therapists in Hot Springs are pretty common. I know this because my daughter dabbles in giving massages with a girlfriend. Where she lives (Lillian Brown Road) is infested with lowlifes , thieves, stray dogs and ex cons. If it isn't nailed down it's stolen. So if i had to move back we'd go directly to Hot Springs Village (which pretends to be gated; it's a joke) but the crime is minimal, the activities numerous, the scenery beautiful, the people are older and friendly. I really miss the village. Badly. And real estate prices are fairly low. Taxes are super cheap.

Hot Springs is a lovely place to live in, if you can stand the heat. It can get pretty hot there, but that's pretty much the only negative that I can think of. It is a beautiful city and the people there are generally very friendly :-) Although, I do suppose that is true for most Southern cities.

Default Garland County - Hot Springs

Hot Springs is bathing in crime right now. The western parts of the county have higher real estate values and seem to be doing well. I was going to move back to the area but prefer just to find a smaller town. I don't recommend the city limits if you have children. The last shooting was directly in the center of town at a gas station. Again the county is better.

Last time I was in HS the blacks had very bad attitudes. Kids walking around with pants around their knees holding their crotches. Got some attitude at some of the low end park ave convince stores. Pushing past you like they wanted to start something. they need to get them under control.

You know I have to ask you; why are you even posting on the AR board? You seem to have a problem with the state or some parts of the state? You posted property sales are not doing well in HSV, and BV, you now are saying the blacks have an attitude problem in HS. I am sure anyone considering moving to AR period will be able to judge these things for themselves. As for kids wearing their pants down to their knees as you put it, this isn't new. In fact we sell less of this than we did 10 years ago. Reading some of your other posts it may not be AR you have a problem with, it might be minorities?

I have to agree, I do love the town for site seeing, but am not sure I would want to live there? I do remember the first time we visited AR was to spend a few days in HS. I thought, at that time I would love living there. Now, I am glad we made the choice we did.

I looked into moving to Hot Springs myself. There are some good deals--whether lake condos or houses. However, I found it too remote. it is a good 20-25 min drive into Hot Springs. Theres a Wal-Mart in Hot Springs Village and a grocery store, but I think you would have to drive into Hot Springs for better shopping and restaurants.
