I am from the middle Georgia area. I had never been to Arkansas before my dad and step mom retired to northern Arkansas. At first I could not understand what the draw was. That was until the first time I came out to visit them. It’s absolutely beautiful. There are hills (the Ozarks), pastures, streams, waterfalls, wildlife, lakes, entertainment, and neighbor stories to last a whole winter. Apart from my desire to retire east of the Mississippi I’d settle here, somewhere close to civilization.
