In Northern Arkansas, the foothills of the Ozarks create rolling twisting valleys etched by fast-running rivers and dotted with dozens of lakes.

The communities of CherokeeVillage, Horseshoe Bend and Ozark Acres, which embrace Ozark Mountain Living, were developed in the 1950’s, 60’s and 70’s as master-planned recreational retirement destinations. They attract retirees and families from all over the nation seeking a more relaxed lifestyle and welcome new businesses to revitalize the area.

Arkansas is centrally located on the edge of the U.S. south and is bordered by six states (Tennessee, Mississippi, Louisiana, Texas, Oklahoma and Missouri). The climate is considered subtropical to continental, offering four distinct seasons. Temperatures average in the nineties midsummer, and winters are mild with typically a few inches or feet of snow.  The changing temperatures and colors make the long springs and falls here particularly delightful.

Taxes are among the lowest nationwide. Crime rates are statistically half the national average or less. The cost of living is 20% below national average. Homes cost half to a quarter of similar stock up north or on the coasts. The populations have been relatively stable, despite the current weakened economy. In response, the area welcomes new businesses with low costs and a strong workforce, which is why some of the worlds largest businesses, like WalMart and Tyson Chicken, have chosen Arkansas for their headquarters. Arkansas is one of the few states in the US that is maintaining a balanced budget. Arkansans are proud of this fact, resilient and strong; they tighten their resources and make the best of what they have. The NaturalState does have a LOT TO OFFER as you can see.
