The largest city in Arkansas is it's capital Little Rock. Disneyland is about 1700 miles from Little rock.

    Re: Tell us about Arkansas

    We visited some friends in Little Rock when we were driving across the country when I was nine. First and only time I ever saw a scorpion.

    I remember thinking Little Rock was a pretty city.

    Re: Tell us about Arkansas

    My son's best friend moved to Arkansas. He was born and raised in Chicago. Went to Arkansas in his teens and came back to Chicago to visit from time to time, with an Arkansas accent.

    Barbarann - We're goin all the way to Wyoming, aren't we?

    Arkansas....My sister just moved there so her husband can work for....WALMART!! YESSIR - Bentonville, Arkansas...the home of Walmart. They sold their house out here in Orange County, put more than half of the sale of their house in the bank, and DOUBLED the size of the house back there. Soooooooo jealous!

    Even though you might cringe when you think "Arkansas", the area of Bentonville is supposed to be quite nice as it is near the Ozarks with lots of trees. It's getting bigger all the time as Walmart is attracting alot of business.

    We are definitely going all the way to Wyoming. If you learn one thing about me, it is that I always finish what I start. There would have to be a pretty good reason for me not to continue these threads. Things like computer failure, forgetting how to type, losing my memory, the dreaded "D" word.

    You get the idea. Yes, I plan on giving each and every state it's moment in the spotlight.

    Re: Tell us about Arkansas

    I was in Arkansas back in 1989 during a LONG family vacation, driving across the country. Little Rock was the first place I'd ever seen a Hardee's. I got an ice cream sundae with "Slimer" green sauce on top (Ghostbusters II had just come out). It was the grossest thing I had ever tasted. After Hardee's we drive on to Oklahoma, so I have no more memories of Arkansas.

    I think they mine diamonds there.

    Re: Tell us about Arkansas

    My husband is from Arkansas and we visit there several times a year. The town he is from is very small, it's a paper mill town and smells nasty and is dirty. There are 2 stop lights in the town, I'm not exaggerating.

    However, many parts of the state are really beautiful. Hot Springs is a very nice area, we visited there once for New Years. Although it snowed and they don't have one snowplow in the city, it was hell driving home the next day, LOL! I like that it's not hard to get out into the country, if you are so inclined. We went out to target shoot on a whim, I never knew there were places that you could just do that and it was really fun.

    You own three cars and one license plate.
