5. It’s Got a Lot of Really Cool Neighbors.
We’ll let you in on a little secret: Arkansas is nestled right in the heart of the south. It borders 6, yes 6 US states: Oklahoma, Texas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Tennessee, and Missouri. It may be landlocked, but you can drive to some pretty cool locations like Shreveport, Dallas, Fort Worth, Jackson, Memphis, Springfield, St. Louis, and Kansas City. That’s only if you tire of Little Rock, of course.
