Find Your Future in the Natural State

Located in the southern United States, Arkansas is beloved for its breathtakingly beautiful and abundant natural resources. Parks, trails, and spectacular views abound, including pristine waterways, and tons of easily accessible adventures in the great outdoors. Some of Arkansas’ best kept secrets include a lower cost of living, mouth-watering culinary traditions, and stress-free driving along our virtually traffic-less roadways. Let’s explore some of the highlights of retiring in Arkansas in Little Rock or West Memphis.

There’s Nothing “Little” About Little Rock: Little Rock is the largest city in the state with just about 200,000 people calling it home. The centrally located River Market District is the ideal place to frequent for all the best foodie destinations, shopping, bar-hopping, and cultural attractions like museums and historical sites. From the Arkansas Museum of Fine Arts in MacArthur Park, the Central Arkansas Nature Center, and the Little Rock Zoo, this city offers next-level fun for everyone.

You Can Bank on West Memphis: West Memphis is located along the west bank of the mighty Mississippi River and it got its name as a major shipping destination for lumber coming in from the Memphis market. If you’re feeling lucky you can put it to the test at the Southland Casino Hotel which is open all year round and offers exciting events to keep you coming back for more. And for some real down and dirty fun, you’ve got the Riverside International Speedway. It’s the oldest dirt track in Arkansas and it’s served as a launch pad for some of the best drivers in the country.

Tax Benefits of Retiring in Arkansas

This southern U.S. state is relatively tax friendly toward people looking to retire. Arkansas does not impose a tax on Social Security benefits or military pensions. You’ll also be exempt from estate, inheritance, and property taxes. That’s right. Choosing a 55+ community in Arkansas means no more retirement income taxes! When you do the math, it means a lower cost of living, which gives your spending power a little more oomph.
