My experiential take is different regarding government. Coming from Illinois, I trust the Government to screw up everything they touch. Been that way for the past 20 years in Illinois, maybe longer as I didn't always use to pay attention.

Illinois is a mess. Growing up in Arkansas, I feel the same way about it.

Sometimes it's just time for a change. There are a bunch of new adventures out there just waiting for you to pick one.

Been in Little Rock for just over a year. Absolutely hate it. Not going to get political about it but just the variety of businesses, the overall energy, and infrastructure just sucks. Haven’t been up to the Fayetteville area yet but I heard it’s alittle better.

Sorry you're not happy there, but many would agree with you. Little Rock is nothing like NWA or north central Arkansas.

It is different, but nothing special.
Little Rock is definitely more city-like in both good and bad ways.
I like it better than NWA's hodgepodge layout and general dullness. A bit lower crime rate is the only major advantage for the northwest.

from our experience NWA is not just a little better, it is 100% better. This isn't knocking Little Rock I might add. We have friends from CA that may soon be moving there. Their daughter just got married and is not living in Little Rock. When our friends visited they fell in love with the area. Even though both wife and husband have lived almost their entire life in So. Ca. and are past middle age, they are ready to make AR their home during their Autumn years. I think the move would have come sooner but wife only retired from teaching a few years ago.
