10 Reasons Why People From Arkansas Are Tough

Mess with an Arkansan at your own peril. You’ll likely get served a nice black eye. What will really shock you is seeing the punch thrown with the politest of smiles (because that heat thrown at you came from a place of love and education; teaching you not to fool with the wrong person). We Arkies ain’t scared of you, your mama, or your big brother – we fight hard and win! What makes us so tough? Well, I’m glad you asked…

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/

So there. Come at us, America, we’re ready! Arkansas has seen it all and been through most of it, so there’s nothing the rest of the country or the world itself can do to shake us to our foundation (unless it’s a major earthquake on the New Madrid Seismic Zone, then maybe.)
