We recently took a day trip in our home state of Arkansas. Our route took us through beautiful country ending in the quaint small town of Mt. View. It is bursting with folk and blue grass musicians that play music on the courthouse square in the evenings. Old downtown is active and bubbling with artisan, music, flea & antiques shops along with an old time pharmacy & soda fountain. Park for free and walk through the town, sampling the friendly town folk and what the Ozarks have to offer. Handmade jewelry, pottery, handmade brooms and painted gourds are just a few of the items to be found. Nearby is the Ozark Folk Center where you can find old fashioned artisans making everything from soap to violins. Such a relaxing day to enjoy beautiful weather and a quiet atmosphere not found in most bigger cities


  1. Oh, this sounds like my kind of place! Great pictures, too. Susan

  2. Oh this looks like a wonderful visit and wonderful day! GREAT photos! makes me want to go there! xo

  3. Thank you...we usually go there once a year to relax and soak up the beauty of all the artists & musicians. If you've never listened to bluegrass/folk music LIVE are really missing out on something special.
