Move to Van Buren, instead, just across the river. Much more interesting. That's just my opinion, of course. Or go on up to Mountainburg, if you want a little more space. Pretty little tiny town, and not far at all from Ft. Smith/Van Buren/Alma.

They are both pretty safe, I would say. You can look them both up here on City Data and look at the crime stats. I believe Van Buren will be a little safer than Ft. Smith.

I agree with luvvarkansas; Van Buren which is almost the same as Ft Smith is a better town. As for safety, yes, both areas are as safe as you can get almost anywhere.

Van Buren is also just more "interesting"...hilly, a neat old downtown with lots of local shops.

Of course, I think Ft. Smith has an old downtown also (I've never been to it), but Ft. Smith is just flat and "bland"....that's the impression I got from it when I was there.

I guess it just depends on whether you prefer hills or flatlands.
