but...but...but....We have the home office of Walmart & Sams Club, along with JB Hunt transportation.

We have Crystal Bridges American Art Museum (a must see if) funded by Alice Walton and the Walton Foundation. We have the Unv. of Arkansas in Fayetteville (never mind the sex scandal from Coach Petrino).Our medical care is terrific with 3 large hospitals and doctors willing to accept Medicare patients.

We also the the Walton Arts center that does host very well known artists.We have good boating and Fishing at Beaver Lake.

It's not a bad place to live, cost of living is quite low, crime is not a big factor, utility costs are very reasonable as many are a co-op. Housing costs are reasonable, some as low as $75sf and some much higher...all the way to $150sf.

Home insurance, earthquake insurance, due to the new Madrid fault, evern though most don't bother to carry it is about $160/yr.

But...YYMV depending on what lifestyle is wanted.
