There’s A Tiny Town In Arkansas Completely Surrounded By Breathtaking Natural Beauty
When you read “tiny town,” you may think of towns that are at least twice as big as Ponca. You see, Ponca’s population doesn’t even hit 100. The humans living there only constitute 91 souls, but the natural wonders there are basically innumerable. Ponca is a gorgeous part of the Ozarks and a gateway to the Buffalo National River, making it hands down one of the most scenic towns in the Natural State. If you want to immerse yourself in natural beauty, the teeny tiny town of Ponca is the perfect place to go.
