Ash Flat, AR is situated among a few other small towns, close by Highland, Cherokee Village, Evening Shade, and Hardy, AR. We have the only Walmart Super Center around for 30 miles, we have a Bowling Alley, Hardy has a more active night life than Ash Flat. I like Ash Flat mostly because it is beautiful and quiet, also there is a branch of the Ozarka College here as well. I have heard good things about the local schools, I can't imagine anyone getting hurt around here as long as they pay attention to what they are doing, very Family friendly area with plenty of things to do with the whole family. Cherokee Village has several lakes and even a small waterfall and creek that runs through the middle of town center, it is fairly cheap area to live in. There is a total of three stop lights in this entire area, so the traffic around here is not bad, finding work or the foods you will want may be hard, because of the small area.
