I used to live in Michigan. Its a crap hole of a state. cold in winter, and short summers if you even get one. Anything south of Gladwin is part of the crap holes of GR, Detroit and Flint. Crap cities with no end to the hood rats. Up north is as beautiful as Arkansas but its much colder and more snow by miles. The UP is nice to camp in but too desolate. You can keep Michigan. I lived there for 40 years and will not go back.

I hate to burst your bubble but Eureka Springs is terrible now. I was literally shocked to say the least. It used to be a very pretty little artist town and had a lot of things to do there. A lot of people driving around.
My daughter wound up having to get a doctor in that town. It was a few hours away from where we live now.
That is why i know how terrible it is. NOTHING hardly is open except a few food places. Motels and Hotels were closed. Everything was basically closed down except resale stores. That was about it. And this was not in the off season either. It is pretty much a ghost town now.
Mexicans and Harley bikers all live there now. I'm not prejudiced but, that is mostly all there is now. And the hospital really sucked badly. My daughter had blood work done there that cost a arm and a leg for that because her medical didn't pay for it. So now she owes over 800 dollars for a few vials of blood.
Cotter might be okay and Yellville is okayish.
If you really want peace and quiet, the place i would go to would be Rea Valley. It is a bit southwest of Mountain Home. It isn't much of anything but woods, piece and quiet and pretty close to Mountain Home. I like the peace and quiet, but also close enough to a Doctor.
If you have the money for land, that's where i would go.
I was in Mountain Home the other day and it keeps growing. Traffic needs to be taken care of. It gets balled up sometimes, but it is not that bad. Especially if you are from a bigger city.
BTW, I just read a couple of days ago that Fayetteville and all along that NWA area is now known for having a panhandling problem in that area now. It doesn't surprise me.
The northern area of Arkansas is the best part of the state. And it isn't so good anymore. People are also pretty much clannish and don't care for outsiders. But the outsiders are okay. They don't mind.
I don't know where anyplace is good anymore ....
I wish you luck in finding a good place.

Another thing to consider is Arkansas has many hunters. They hunt deer, elk, turkey, etc. Most times it is to put food on the table for their families. BUT, if things went horribly wrong in the economy, look out. There will be someone behind every tree... and that is what scares me the most here because they are a very good shot. If you understand me.
Total BS. ES is doing fine, just as it has done. Does it have a regional Hospital? No but to say its closing down is an out and out lie.

I have been there several times, so i have saw it when it was a nice place and to how it is now.
BTW..................do you live there or close to there at the chicken farms?
They stink too.
I am just forewarning people who rather read some advise first instead of blowing gas money to a run down city.
I guess they could go to Branson so it would not be a total waste.
Branson and Springfield Missouri is a much better area with good doctors.
I live near Eureka Springs. It's not a ghost town, and during the season it's still quite packed, full of stores, and almost every weekend there are events planned.

If you don't have anything good to say about me like the snide comments and assumptions earlier, please don't say nothing.

Plus you'll get called to Yooper .

The movie Escanaba in da Moonlight show cased a Yooper pretty good. I'm from Wisconsin, so we get our share of stick poking also. You try walking into a job in the deep roots of Arkansas and have your northern accent. Lots of fun stick poking that happens, but it goes both ways.

As long as you love where you live.


As a Wisconsin person might say....

"Oh yeah sure you betcha!" (I've never said that, but I've heard it said).

Replace cold with hot, less snow and more tornadoes, and you just described Arkansas for many.

you said it before I could post. What a bunch of bull; I don't know where she is getting her information but it is crazy. Even the part about a decent doctor: Holy Cow, Eureka Springs is only a short drive from so many good doctors in NWA.

most people know Harrison is the KKK headquarters, but are you aware they only have a few hundred members all around the country now. They are simply a horrible night mare from years gone by. I think, for whatever reason you have a chip on your shoulder so are blowing everything out of proportion. As for medical care, most of the NWA area which takes in Eureka Springs has very good medical facilities and yes, they take all type of patience and no, doctors do not hold back filling forms most of the time.
