It's sad that people don't give Arkansas (and other states) a chance. It's such a nice state. I really think people just rely on what they see the media portrays of certain states. Hmm, I guess no one would believe that in West Little Rock, AR there are tons of nice neighborhoods that can easily compete with any nice neighborhood that you can find anywhere in America. It's the same thing as what you will find in suburban Wash DC, Charlotte, Chicago, etc.

Media has brainwashed too many people's brains......

Living in Northern Virginia is pretty much exactly like living in Maryland:

High cost of living and mind-numbing traffic during rush hour, but at the same time access to great schools, amenities, high-paying jobs and of course good ole' Washington, D.C.

Outside of Northern Virginia, Virginia is a completely different state.

Being from Little Rock, Arkansas I've heard the negative reactions about my state my whole life. And I've traveled and lived out of state for years when I've heard things. I've noticed that people really only talk bad about two states. Mississippi and Arkansas. Sometimes Alabama. LOL

MS and AL by far. AR just doesn't seem to be on the radar as much either on the positive or negative side. Someone said the problem is that once you're outside of Little Rock, you're in Arkansas which is interesting because these days, it appears as though northwest AR is getting all the shine. AR isn't a one-trick pony in any case.
