Why You Should Visit Mountain Home, Arkansas!

March 25, 2020

Welcome to the Ozark’s!

Welcome to Mountain Home! Also known as my (Katy) other hometown (see Jonesboro, AR for my other hometown blog post). Mountain Home is a beautiful place. It’s like a little slice of heaven! Especially in the outdoor months because it’s home to 2 lakes and 3 rivers!

Let’s start with the place that has my heart: Lake Norfork. I grew up on this lake and I think it’s the best place in the world! You can rent a pontoon or jet ski to take out on the water, bass fish, or camp! You won’t be disappointed. The area is called “Twin Lakes” because Bull Shoals Lake is about 15 minutes from Norfork and is equally as beautiful and actually larger!

The White River is the spot for some world class trout fishing. Go out with the family or a fishing guide and enjoy the beautiful scenery while you (hopefully) catch some fish! Be sure to check out Gaston’s Resort while you’re there!

House of Pizza is my favorite spot to grab a bite! I’m a classic breadstick + cheese pizza girl (even though I’m lactose intolerant – oops). If you’re in the mood for a dive bar and AMAZING burger hit up The Back 40.

If you’re into the brewery scene, Rapp’s Barren is your place! It’s a cozy, friendly spot, and sometimes they have live music! Hoppuccinno or My Sweet Mtn. Home are my favorite drafts on tap 🙂

My coffee peeps: you need to make a trip to Cove Coffee! They have so many yummy latte options and amazing scones! It’s all about the community hang here. There’s a sign that says “We don’t have WiFi…talk to each other pretend it’s 1995”, which I love haha!

Drop in at Freckles Chic for some cute, boutique shopping! From baby, to bridal shower gifts, to your favorite new dress – they’ve got it all! 

Wanna work out while you’re on Vacation? Head to Amend Fitness and get your sweat on before you head out on the water! This is my cousin, Robert’s gym and they do an amazing job!

As much as I love shorts season [aka summer] I sometimes despise the actual “denim shorts season” itself. Shorts can be tricky. Sometimes they are too tight, too short, too loose and the list of all of the discomforts of shorts goes on. Today, we’re here to put some of those discomforts to rest and […]

If there’s one trend I’m happily hopping on board with, it’s the white sneaker rage. Maybe they never went out of style, maybe it’s more socially acceptable than ever to wear tennies with every. single. outfit. Either way, I’m here for it.

If there is one thing I have learned over the past year of life it is that 30 minutes on a bike can change your life in the best way possible. After years of hearing how great a workout on a stationary bike can be, Shawn & I finally decided to put the pedal to […]
