Why it’s hot: Though Lake Norfork and Bull Shoals Lake are generally regarded as the trophies of the region, the scenery provided by the Ozark Mountains and White River are no less beautiful in Mountain Home, illustrating why Arkansas boasts the nickname “The Natural State.”

The 11,000 locals hunt, backpack, spelunk and ride horses in the Ozark Mountains, while fishermen reel in rainbow, cutthroat and brown trout in the 92-mile stretch of Bull Shoals known as the White River—which is considered one of America’s most productive fisheries.

How they live:  Besides the world-renowned fly-fishing and the awe-inspiring hikes, residents of Mountain Home enjoy a variety of festivals and celebrations. From the fireworks display at the Red, White, Blue Festival (which includes a parade, turtle race and an antique tractor exhibition) to a scattered collection of rodeos, this area seamlessly blends small-town good times with the great outdoors.

Recent land-sale prices:
Expect ranges anywhere from $1,800 to $50,000 per acre. Recent listings include 1.15 acres for $8,700, 3.4 acres for $23,500, and 3 acres for $19,900.
