Arkansas - Scenic Towns

Journey through the heart of the Natural State with the upcoming Arkansas DLC, where every bend in the road unveils a new story waiting to be discovered. From rolling Ozark hills to the mighty Mississippi River, this DLC promises a virtual road trip brimming with adventure and charm. Here's a sneak peek at some of the towns you'll encounter along your scenic drive!

Nestled in the beautiful Ozark Mountains, Hardy is renowned for its downtown area filled with historic buildings dating back to the late 19th century. Truckers can explore this town while travelling on U.S. Route 63, which is the main highway running through Hardy.

DeQueen is the county seat of Sevier County in Arkansas with a population of just over six thousand people. It is an important intersection of multiple routes and the U.S. Route 71. The town is home to the DeQueen Lake and the Sevier County Museum.

Magnolia was founded back in 1853 near the southwest border of the state. Its roots lie in agriculture, but after the discovery of oil near the city in 1938, it became the largest-producing oil field in the USA during the Second World War.

Siloam Springs is located in the north-west of Arkansas where the southern plains meet the Ozark Mountains. Founded in the late 19th century, the city was known for the alleged healing powers of its spring water-feeding Sager Creek, which flows through its downtown.

Conway is the county seat of Faulkner County, situated in the state's most populous area, Central Arkansas. Conway was originally founded in 1872 as a railroad town, and is now home to three institutions of higher learning, including the University of Central Arkansas, earning it the nickname City of Colleges.

Russellville is the county seat and largest city in Pope County with an estimated population of almost thirty thousand citizens. It is located on the southern edge of the Ozark Mountains and north of the Arkansas River. In the 1970s, Arkansas' only nuclear power plant was built just outside the city, on the beautiful Lake Dardanelle.

Nestled in the southeast of the state near the Arkansas Delta, Lake Village is named for its location on Lake Chicot, an oxbow lake formed by the Mississippi River. The town has a rich heritage with nine properties listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

Truckers can find Hamburg not too far away from Lake Village, in the southern part of Arkansas. Surrounded by fields and forests, it is a popular destination for travelers seeking a taste of rural Arkansas life. The town also hosts the popular Armadillo Festival every year since 1970.

We hope you are excited to explore all those beautiful scenic towns while keeping in mind that this DLC is still a work in progress.
