You’ve just found the best moving company Arkansas has to offer!
Arkansas is one of the southern American states bordering the mighty Mississippi River. The land can primarily be divided into two categories of highlands in the northwest and lowlands in the southeast. Much of the borders are defined by rivers and lakes. Nicknamed “the Natural State,” the region has a diverse geographic makeup from the Ozarks to the Arkansas Timberlands to the Delta near the river, providing a multitude of opportunities for outdoor activities such as hiking, boating, and camping. While the state does not sit directly on the Gulf of Mexico, it is still close enough to experience the warming influence on its weather, giving it a humid subtropical climate that results in lush vegetation, prosperous farming conditions, and the occasional extreme weather.
When you move to Arkansas, there are a number of great opportunities at your doorstep. Near the center of the state, on the banks of the Arkansas River sits the state capital, Little Rock, the cultural and economic hub of Arkansas. Kiplinger noted this city in 2013 as the #1 metropolitan area to live in with a population under 1 million people. It is here you can find a collection of museums, theaters, universities, and other venues for events, such as the Arkansas Art Center, featuring works by Rembrandt and Van Gogh. Notable people such as Bill and Hilary Clinton, Douglas MacArthur, and Bill Hicks have hailed from Little Rock.
As a citizen of Arkansas, relaxation is just a stone’s throw away for you. In Garland County, Arkansas is the town of Hot Springs, a prosperous spa town with numerous art deco buildings, historic hotels, and of course, bathhouses that contain natural hot springs, which have long been believed by Native Americans and many other cultures to contain medicinal properties. Bathhouse Row located in downtown Hot Springs was designated as a National Historic Landmark on May 28, 1987 and preserves eight original bathhouses, associated buildings, and gardens situated on the lower slopes of Hot Springs Mountain, where the mineral waters produced there lack the sulfur odor of most hot springs. The surrounding area has a variety of restaurants, shops, and other interests for both residents and visitors. Contact Allied today and we’ll help you settle into your new home in Arkansas.
