Siloam Springs is a city in Benton County, Arkansas, United States. The city shares a border on the Arkansas-Oklahoma state line with the city of West Siloam Springs, Oklahoma, which is within the Cherokee Nation territory. The town was founded in 1882 and was characterized by the purported healing powers of the spring water feeding Sager Creek and trading with nearby Native American tribes. John Brown University (JBU) was founded in 1919 as a private, interdenominational, Christian liberal arts college in the city. Today, Siloam Springs is known for its efforts to preserve and revitalize the city's historic downtown and as a promoter of the arts via Sager Creek Arts Center and the JBU art gallery. The community is located on the western edge of the growing Northwest Arkansas metropolitan area and has had a population increase of 47% to 15,039 between the 2000 and 2010 censuses.

This park is on the Arkansas-Oklahoma border. It is an easy one-day trip for us, and the trails vary from easy to strenuous. Beautiful scenery and good exercise. Very inexpensive to get in. You can take a picnic and games and enjoy a cheap day out of the house. Not crowded at all.

This 4 mile drive through zoo is great for all ages. Multitudes of animals roaming free and some in enclosures (lions, tigers, bears, hippos and rhinos) that are easily viewed from your car. Animals were in very good condition, very well cared for and very friendly. Walk through portion with many animals available to pet and feed.

We stopped by during a college visit last week. While we didn't get to try it out we did see some new kayakers learning from a guide. This is a lovely area that would be great for just a picnic (there are tables and lots of shade) or a ride on the white water. It would also be a peaceful place just to get away for a while to study or de-stress. Warning-we did see a couple of baby water moccasins so beware.

This is a nice collection of local farmers and growers selling vegetables and flowers and great prices. It's a small venue but varies in participants week to week. A great place to make good connections with local growers for continued supplies of vegetables, flowers and trinckits.

As the only DZ in Arkansas, I really had no idea what to expect as I was passing through and wanted to get a jump in. To my pleasant surprise, everyone from the owner to the staff to the locals just hanging out at the hanger, were all so amazing and friendly. Eddie the S/L instructor was incredibly professional and well experienced and I cannot wait to jump with him again! Erin was so helpful with all of the gear and videos and on the radio. Overall amazing vibe at this DZ - I highly recommend checking it out.

We went here and 205 S. Broadway is an empty building! Then we noticed the coupon we had off the internet expired in August 2014, so they may have been closed for a while.
