Fort Smith, Arkansas, is one of the least expensive places in the United States to live. Taxes are low and the cost of goods is much less than in major urban cities. A pleasant, friendly community on the Arkansas river, the city offers a wealth of senior citizen services and community social groups to foster friendship and town pride. Fort Smith is the proud home of the first symphony orchestra in Arkansas and the longest running volunteer theater in the state.
Many small communities in Arkansas are enticing to senior citizens living on a fixed-budget. Conway, Arkansas, is a small city with excellent medical services and senior support programs.
The University of Arkansas through the Donald W. Reynolds Institute on Aging offers world-class medical care. Health clinics, classes and activities to engage the minds and bodies of Arkansas senior citizens, are presented across the state through a network of low-cost university clinics.
