10 Things Arkansans Do That Totally Shock Everyone Else
I’ve had cause to have conversations with a few transplants to our beautiful state, and I’m here to report that you would not believe the things that astound and astonish them about our ways. Below you’ll find 10 things that people from other places find a little disconcerting. Perhaps next time you meet someone from elsewhere, you should send them this list, just so they’re aware of how strange it seems to hear, “What do you mean you’ve eaten squirrel?”
We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/

She is also an avid collector of tacky fish whatnots, slightly chipped teapots, and other old things. In her spare time she enjoys driving to the nearest creek to sit a while. If you were to visit her, she'd try to feed you cornbread.
