My mom lives in Arkansas. US 71 is very good road, glad it's going to be interstate now. Also, there is interstate from Bella Vista, AR all the way to I-40 when you keep going south. Goes through Rogers, Bentonville, Fayetteville, etc. And the drive through the Boston Mountains on I-540 is spectacular. Major bridges in the skies. Beautiful drive in fall when the trees are turning colors.
