There's a lot to like about living in Benton. Like many small towns, there's a quiet vibe here and real down home feel with ample southern charm.
I like the rural area, people are friendly and tend to keep to themselves. I would give 5 stars but due to the fact that the town is getting bigger and bigger and more "city" like it just cuts down on the rural charm I loved so much when we first moved here.
I grew up in Benton, and I love the small town. There’s enough stores and restaurants that it’s just 10 minutes upthe road without the crazy hustle and bustle of larger cities.
Benton is a small, friendly town with antique stores, a farmers market, some fast food restaurants, convenience stores and a grocery store. It also has a large lake for fishing, camping and recreational water sports.
There is nothing to do.The only way to have ANY fun at all is to drive to shreveport and even that sucks
