Quaint town with plenty activities to do year round – hunting, fishing… Easy access to Oklahoma and Missouri. Very family friendly.

Someone moving to Fort Smith should know quite a few things. For example, there are few things to do here. Therefore, they may get bored easily. Similarly, there are not a lot of opportunities here. Coming out of high school, you may think that you can do whatever you desire, but those who believe that are utterly mistaken. Although it may seem like it to foreigners, alas, there aren’t many opportunities.

Someone moving to Fort Smith, AR, should know this city has a long history as a military fort right on the border of what was once Indian Territory. There were a lot of federal marshals here that chased outlaws into the Indian Territory and brought them back to justice. This history is both revered and celebrated here, and much of the modern-day culture reflects the past.
