Fayetteville - The liberal capital of Arkansas

So I was in Fayetteville back in late December visiting my cousin who attends the University of Arkansas. It was a gloomy day with a temperature of about 11C. Fayetteville is located in the Ozarks in Northwestern Arkansas. It is a college town and definitely has the same vibe as Austin, TX, a blue island in a sea of red.

Arkansas is a crossroads state, both geographically and culturally. Southern and Eastern Arkansas are very Southern in Nature, Western Arkansas has qualities of the Southern Plains and Northern Arkansas has qualities of the MidWest.

That's probably why we know so little about Arkansas. I can't remember having heard any news about Arkansas and I didn't really know what it would look like. Thanks for showing us a little part of this state!

If you cut Arkansas in half with a diagonal line stretching from the NE corner to the SW corner of the state, the area west of the line has hills, ridges, and small mountains with river valleys. The area east of the line is very flat and swampy with lots of bayous.

That's the best way to describe how the state looks like, Fayetteville is west of the line.

Except for Bill Clinton coming from there, I don`t remember hearing any news, or stories about Arkansas either.

Nice shots by the way musiccity.

Thanks!


Half my family lives there so I know a lot about the state, but I can see why it might be unknown to non-Americans or even non-Southerners.

I guess it's just one of those "forgotton states" in a sense. Kinda like the Dakotas
