Looking for a beautiful location to retire to with friendly people, low costs, and the best of city and country? Look no further than the gorgeous state of Arkansas!

The Razorback state offers hills and mountains that are breathtaking when the fall leaves change color, or summer time sailing on huge Beaver Lake. You can shop in historic Eureka Springs in quaint shops or browse big name designer stores in Rogers.

Drive to the capitol and spend the day in the William Jefferson Clinton Presidential Library and review the history of the Clinton administration, including a replica of the Oval Office.

Arkansas is the proud home of President Clinton where he served as their Governor. If you are really a political junkie, you can tour his home in Hope, Arkansas.

Not only is there great scenery and politics in Arkansas, there is also great food. Arkansans know how to smoke their hams, briskets, and BBQ! Come here for some real old time country cooking, including okra and cornbread.

October is the time for large regional arts and crafts shows that attract artisans from around the country to this state; the event is popular for locals as well as visitors from across the U.S.

If you are concerned about health care, Arkansas has a superb system of care for the over-50 crowd. Arkansas has mild winters, hot summers and all four seasons to enjoy.

Lastly, in case you are sports fan, Arkansans are fanatics about their Razorback football team and even church services will stop to report a touchdown on Saturday afternoon!

Arkansas, a great place to retire!

Arkansas can be good...

and it can be horrible. The summers are hot and humid, with millions of little biting bugs. Winters rarely bring snow, but ice storms are common. And in the spring, tornadoes are also common - and deadly. Northern Arkansas is part of tornado alley.

Also, if you are not very conservative and religious, Arkansas will probably not be your cup of tea. Over half the state is "dry" - and not likely to change. Eureka Springs, Hot Springs, and Little Rock are gay friendly, but nowhere else. And though it's touted as a great place to retire, unless you want to join a militia or the KKK, stay away from Harrison.

That said, the cost of living is low, the scenery is spectacular, and the infrastructure is fairly good. Little Rock has good shopping and hospitals. The River Market is very nice, and there is good night life there.
