Vintage Roadside: Greetings from Arkansas!

For those of you playing the home edition of Vintage Roadside Road Trip, you will be moving your Arkansas game piece from Jonesboro to Eureka Springs over the course of the following blog. Our tip: Try not to land on "No Vacancy" - because that's no fun for anyone.

As mentioned earlier, blogs for the trip home will be light in text, but rich in photos.

Following a hearty breakfast of Krispy Kremes and Coke, we spotted this guy staring at us from across the parking lot in Bono so we went over to say hi. Hard not to love a monkey in a bow-tie.

Hoxie, Arkansas:

The drive up to Powhatan Historic State Park:

Recently painted gas station in Lynn:

A beautiful stone motor court on the corner of Cave & Main in Cave City, "Home of the World's Sweetest Watermelon."

A sign with most of the text chiseled off indicated the motor court may date to 1934.

On the way to Batesville on Hwy 167 we stopped for this photo...because Putt-Putt golf is awesome.

Found in Batesville, a Main Street Community

Originally opened in 1940, we understand the renovated Melba Theater now serves the community as a venue for both concerts and movies.

This Place Matters: America's two-lane highways - Hwy 14 through Big Flat.

Hudson's Super Market in Harrison:

And finally, Bluebird Lodge just east of Eureka Springs on Hwy 62.

On that note (see what we did there?), we'll sign off for the night in preparation for tomorrow's great Oklahoma crossing. See you tomorrow!
