Benefits of Living in Arkansas

If you’re leaving New York and heading down south to Arkansas, you’re in for an unforgettable adventure. Arkansas is a land of vast farmland, rugged mountain chains, hot springs and friendly southern culture. The trip from the north is a lengthy one, but you’re sure to enjoy yourself when you reach your destination. Life in Arkansas is much different than living in New York, but after a short time, you’ll wish you had made the trip earlier. You can examine all the incredible experiences waiting for in Arkansas in the following passages.

Arkansas has Incredible Landscape

Arkansas’ unique landscape is a sight to behold. The eastern portion of the state is covered by rich farmlands benefiting from the tributaries of the Mississippi River. The Mississippi Alluvial Plain covers the northeast section, and the West Gulf Coastal Plain covers the southwest areas. The western part of the state is defined by the Ozark Plateau, the Arkansas River Valley and the Ouachita Mountains. Traveling across the state, you’ll experience flat plains, craggy river gorges and incomparable mountain vistas.

Get Ready for a Climate Difference

Unlike the climate in New York, Arkansas’s climate is humid and subtropical. The lower portions of the state receive the most rainfall and high summer temperatures, but the western regions are cooler with less precipitation. Temperatures in the 90s are typical in summer, but with the heat index added in from the humidity, the summer heat feels like it reaches triple digits. The climate is a stark contrast to what you’re used to in the north, but you’re going to love the winter weather.

Winters in Arkansas are mild and cool, and the season often starts much later than in other states. Some regions of the state still experience 90° temperatures in mid-November. That means you can leave your heavy jacket, wool socks, and long underwear back in New York.

You'll Love The Cost of Living Advantages

New York is an amazing state, but its housing prices and cost of living are some of the highest in the country. In contrast, Arkansas has much lower living costs and affordable housing. In Arkansas, you’ll pay less for housing, groceries, restaurant meals, and transportation. One of the most significant differences in living costs is the cost of renting a property. New York’s rent is over 270% more expensive than rent in Arkansas. That massive difference allows you to save more and get more out of your paycheck.

There's an Abundance of Affordable Housing

High rents and mortgages are not common in Arkansas. With the money you spend on housing in New York, you can enjoy a much larger property in Arkansas at a lower price. Arkansas ranks 2nd in the country for the lowest housing prices. The median home price is right under $180,000, and the average property tax is only .61%. Real estate countrywide is in a buyer’s market, and you could not have picked a better place or time to buy a home.

Your New Job Awaits in Arkansas

The economy of Arkansas relies heavily on agriculture. Rice is the state’s biggest crop, and it accounts for half of the total rice production in the country. However, its central location helped Arkansas become a leader in transportation and logistics. It has some of the largest trucking companies and boasts over 80 distribution centers. Some of the primary employers in the industry include FedEx, the Union Pacific Railroad, Dillard’s Inc. and USA truck.

The aerospace industry is also a vital part of Arkansas’ economy. The state has over 180 defense, aviation and aerospace agencies, and the products from the industry are the state’s biggest exports. If you’re looking for a job in aerospace, you’ve come to the right place. Engineers, machinists, researchers and mechanics are in high demand to fill positions in organizations such as General Dynamics, Dassault Falcon Jet, Aero Jet and Rocketdyne.

There's Plenty of Educational Opportunities

With over 40 colleges and universities in Arkansas, you have several diverse choices for education and employment opportunities. The University of Arkansas in Fayetteville is well known for its business school, school of agriculture and life sciences and engineering school. Created in 1871, the university was the first public college in the state and continues to be a leader in research and agricultural science.

Enjoy the Outdoor Life

Living in Arkansas will make you reconsider a couch-potato lifestyle. The gorgeous scenery of the state is unlike anything in the country. In the Ouachita Mountains, you can visit Hot Springs to experience the same waters that brought hordes of settlers in the 19th century to the state for medicinal healing. Some of the city’s famous bathhouses are still in use, and you may be lucky enough to see your favorite MLB star in the city for spring training.

In Conway, you can experience the breathtaking Petit Jean State Park. The park is best known for vast canyons, massive cave formations and Lake Bailey. If you want to escape the heat, you can head to Blanchard Springs Caverns in the Ozark-St. Francis National Forest for an underground hike next to impressive stalagmite and stalactite formations.

See Arkansas Art

Coming from New York, you may have enjoyed the state’s world-class art scene, and you’ll be happy to find out that Arkansas has a thriving art scene. The state’s central region is the primary art hub with incredible museums like the Arkansas Museum of Fine Arts or the Vogel Schwartz Sculpture Garden, which features public artworks next to the Arkansas River. Little Rock also features a symphony and ballet company that perform around the state.

Making the long trek from New York to Arkansas may seem intimidating, but you can depend on White Glove Moving for professional assistance in your move across the country.
