One positive for NWA is a 2 hours flight to Denver. And you can realistically drive there too.


There are a lot of direct flights from XNA, thanks to WM.

It absolutely makes up for it. And I won’t say it’s impossible by any means but for some reason NWA has far less encounters with major tornados than practically every other area In that part of the country.


What's crazy is that this past fall(2019) we had the second WIDEST tornado in state history that traveled from Siloam Springs thru Rogers. It was a 1.5 mile wide EF1 tornado. Now the damage I saw in Rogers was EF0 to my eyes.

Dan Skoff did a breakdown of it LINK

Greenville is a nothingburger town in a great location. NWA is beautiful. Not sure how following the Louisiana purchase, they decided to make a state called Arkansas and give Louisiana the hot as shite part. Guess we just wanted more states back then.

Greenville is a beautiful town and has some good outdoor activities. It is growing though.

You'd be 2 hrs away from Athens as well.

But as other posters mentioned Charlotte, Raleigh, Charleston, pebble beach all very close.

I have no desire to live in a big city again. A mid sized city has everything we really care about anymore.

I’m sure both locations are beautiful and have a lot going for them, but it’s hard to beat Greenville as far as geographic location is concerned.

Knoxville, TN would also be a nice area to consider.

Location is one of the main reasons we've been considering Greenville.

It's just been quite some time since I've been there but I remember enjoying the area. I spent a few weeks on a project there about 10-11 years ago.

The southern Appalachia region is turning out a bunch of really nice cities these days.

Sorry, I got busy and didn’t see your question. We get warm days here. Today was 94 and I sat outside watching my smoker all day long
and hardly sweat all day. (Sat in the shade of course) it’s a
Much different heat, and last year it was only hit a couple months . Maybe even less this year so far. Winter was about as mild as Louisiana winters. Short of it I guess is the weather is very favorable!

I can’t speak for NC, but I love NWA. The only drawback is Arkansas fans, but besides their intense, strange hatred for LSU, they’re friendly. Plus, they’re a sad bunch lately anyway.

Real talk—NWA is so pretty and has an awesome climate. Only really gets hot for a couple months but has a gorgeous spring and fall. Might have some tornados to contend with. Otherwise, great schools, very clean, tons of economic opportunities, plenty to do and cost of living is cheap.

NWA is beautiful. Truly an amazing place. It’s better than Greenville, in a vacuum. Unfortunately, NWA is shockingly remote. It’s not close to literally, anything worthwhile for 6 hours. Keep that in consideration.


Exactly this.

If you’re just looking for the immediate area, Fayetteville/Rogers/Bentonville is hard to beat for a mid-size area.

But there is nothing else close by.

NWA is actually a lot more of a melting pot than central Arkansas though. Outside of NWA the state is very homogeneous.


You’ve got the right. The people are nice enough but it’s the most boring place you could ever hope to live. NWA is more transient and I find I like the people up there a lot more than in Little Rock. I find LR to be cliquey and the people, while decent, are strange.

Where do you run into Hog fans that hate LSU? I no of no one up here that gives a crap about LSU fans.

Unless you are walking around with LSU gear on, with neck and forehead tats, and cussing out loud as if you are POS trash, we don't care who you root for.

ETA: I have a soft spot for LSU people. I lived in between BR and NOLA for around four years. While Louisiana wasn't ever going to be a long term destination for me, Louisiana has some damn fine people. I never thought LSU people were anything other than gracious and hospitable.

We aren't looking for a lot of excitement. We are early/mid 40s and looking to finish raising the last one in a nice, quiet, safe place. We will likely retire where we end up.

Who are the morons saying Greenville’s airport sucks???

I work DL based out of ATL and commute from GSP. It’s probably one of the nicest small airports in the country. Hell Wolfgang Puck built a damn restaurant in it. Ask any pilot or FA and if they’ve been to GSP they’ll say the same.

I live about 25 minutes from the airport on the west end of Greenville and downtown and it’s awesome. Wife is from Chicago and loves it here also. But whoever says GSP airport is worse than XNA is just clueless lmao.

Look into a lake house on Hartwell, Keowee, or Jocassee. Keowee is my favorite personally.

A lake would be nice, but I would like to live somewhere in either Chatahoochee or Nantahala National Forests with property backing onto the U.S. Forest Service land.

Looking on Zillow, the Chatahoochee N.F. area is getting expensive as it's closer to Atlanta, especially around Ellijay and Blue Ridge, Georgia.

What's the Johnson City, TN area like? Wife and I are considering a move to East Tennessee from the Houston area when I become eligible for retirement in a few years.

Wife was born and spent part of her childhood in Alcoa, outside Knoxville, but isn't real familiar with the northeast part of Tennessee around the Tri-Cities.

Is Northwest Arkansas on the way to becoming Austin like? Meaning that it’s a nice town now, but will eventually turn to shite like Austin has.
