The One Arkansas Town That’s So Perfectly Southern

Once an oil boomtown, El Dorado is now a thriving south Arkansas city with a population of 18,491. That’s about a mid-sized city by Arkansas standards, but make no mistake, this city still feels like a small town. Located close to the Arkansas-Louisiana state line, El Dorado is not only located in the proud Southern Natural State, but just about as far south as south goes in that state. El Dorado is the quintessential Southern city not only because of its location, but because it also has everything you’d want in a Southern town: friendly folks, an adorable downtown area, a small town atmosphere, and an incredibly picturesque setting.

El Dorado is located in Union County. To find directions, click here.
