Nestled in the Arkansas River Valley, between the Ozark and Ouachita Mountains; Arkansas’s second largest city, Fort Smith, rests gently on the banks of the Arkansas River at the intersection of interstates 40 and 540.

When you visit, you’ll find that Fort Smith’s past is in its future. We uniquely combine the history of the “Old West” with the gentle charm of the antebellum “Old South,” offering travelers of all ages glimpses into its distinctive past through restorations, attractions, museums and festivals that make our history fun and exciting.

When you arrive in Fort Smith, make Miss Laura’s Social Club (the Fort Smith Visitors Center, a former bordello that was the first to be placed on the National Register of Historic Places), your first stop for a warm welcome and plenty of information about our community, our main attractions, or upcoming events.

See our Fort Smith Calendar of Events for details on dozens of upcoming special events and entertainment!
