I was thinking mindset, more than geography.
Obviously, geo-politically, Arkansas owns a heritage that was pure South, and much of that heritage is alive and well, today. And much of Missouri shared Southern sentiments in the 19th century and still inhabits the same political spectrum, today.

When you climb north of the Ozarks, Probably North of the Missouri River, you start finding more Midwestern attitudes and politics in Missouri.

I love that they try to listen to Aussies and British talk and compare phrases. It shows you folks really care how people connect words to emotional feelings and moods.

I think you're going to be pleasantly surprised at the friendliness of the people. I'm not even a foreign visitor and I was really impressed when my family visited Arkansas in the mid 1990s. In most towns nearly everyone would nod and say hello. In most businesses the owners or staff would take time to chat and ask where we were from. It was a very warm and welcoming place.

I'm just back in the UK from several days staying with friends in Monticello and really enjoyed my visit to SE Arkansas. Finding out that I was in a 'dry' county was a bit of a surprise but just added to the difference I felt (this was my first time in the South and we also strayed into Mississippi and Louisiana) compared to the other parts of the US I've been to. The biggest surprise was finding out that there are no longer public phones in some parts of the US; biggest disappointment was that I couldn't find picture postcards anywhere in the SE to send to friends.

I am not surprised about public phones, but am a little surprised about the post cards. SE AR is a little different from other parts of the state. Like anywhere, each region has its own personality. Dry counties are disappearing yearly. I am guessing, in another 5 years there will be none. NWA is wet everywhere except there are still a no Sunday sale law. Even that will soon vanish.

Springdale isn't dry on Sunday. The law (I think) Monday through Saturday.. is no sales after midnight. It would be no sales after midnight ( I imagine) on Sunday in Springdale but not quite sure on that.
