The Unique Town In Arkansas That’s Anything But Ordinary

The town prides itself on its rural character, and as we all know, rural character makes just about any Arkansas town amazing. Walnut Ridge, however, has even more to offer than rural character. This town isn’t just charming—it’s also unique. Walnut Ridge has an interesting history involving the most iconic rock band of all time, a restaurant like no other, and the town is located in one of the best spots in the world for waterfowl enthusiasts.
