The Arkansas State Tourism just published an article featuring a town in Arkansas that they call not only one of these most unique towns in the state but also the best of four states all rolled up into one. 

The town? Texarkana, Arkansas.

The article goes into what makes this town so unique. One of the most obvious is our famous Post Office that we share with our twin city Texarkana, Texas. It is also one of the most photographed Post Offices as it literally straddles two states.

Yes, we are a twin city but there is so much more. This article is all about the City of Texarkana, Arkansas.
