Why This One Little Town Is Arkansas’s Best Kept Secret

Mountain View is a town of under 3,000 residents, but what it lacks in population it more than makes up for in character. You see, Mountain View is sort of the protector of Ozark traditions. It’s a working memory for the people of the hills. There you can find a quaint little town with fabulous and frequent live music, beautiful scenery, and enough to see and learn that you’ll want to unpack your suitcase and stay forever.
