Visitors Choose To Stay In Hope Due To Its Proximity To Attractions

By Staff, 10/13/20 8:12 PM

Just across from the newspaper office, we happened to run into these nice folks from Bartlett, Tennessee on Tuesday.  They are Lee and Jackie Stewart along with their kids Moira and Aiden.  We asked them what brought them to Hope and they explained that it was a good central location to visit a number of attractions in southwest Arkansas and east Texas.  It turns out Aiden Stewart has wanted to visit the Crater of Diamonds State Park in Murfreesboro since he was 9 years old.  The Stewarts have been there and had also visited Texarkana.  They said they were impressed with the quality and variety of lodging in Hope and gave very high marks to the Best Western in Hope.  We hope the Stewarts will come back to see us and we hope they had fun visiting “Arkansas’s Great Southwest”!
