DISCLAIMER: What follows is being written first-hand from one individual’s life experiences. In other words, this won’t be definitive but will try to be comprehensive.
I confess that I am a transplant from Minnesota. I moved here in 2004 knowing very little about the area. I had family in Arkansas and a new job. As far as towns went, I traded one small town for a hub town of the Ozarks. Harrison has a lot to offer. If you want to sell real estate in Harrison you should take some time to become familiar with the area.
A great place to start is the Harrison Convention and Visitor’s Bureau. This site offers information on lodging, dining, tourism, local events, and more. There are beautiful, eye catching photos. You will see a lot of individuals in the area that ride motorcycles. The site offers information about planning motorcycle outings. If you like to hike or participate in outdoor activities, Harrison is close to the Buffalo River National Park and you’ll find information about the park as well.
Another potential resource is the Harrison Chamber of Commerce website. This site will contain an event’s calendar and information about the economy. Perhaps your client will be looking to start a new commercial venture in the area. This will provide them with information about local members and how to get plugged into the commercial part of the city.
Of course, the best way to become familiar with Harrison is to visit. There are some great local restaurants as well as the chains that kids love. There are several lodging options. For those that love antiquing, there are lots of places to search for collectibles. The historic, downtown square hosts a number of thrift stores, some photo framing/hobby stores, the Lyric Theatre, and lots more. You could easily spend a day going from shop to shop exploring different offerings.
May 7-8, 2016 is the dates for Crawdad Days Festival. That would be a good time to visit as the events take place in the Harrison Lake Park and the square. If you like vintage vehicles there are lots to see. Various vendors offer handmade items. Other vendors supply food or represent different services in the area. So come check out the city. Have fun.
