    Benton Reviews

    There isn't anything really in Benton so you usually end up having to take at least a 15 minute drive to go somewhere but the airport and the glass blowing place are pretty nice.
    Most of what's around is your typical chain food restaurant places but we do have a few good variety places.
    Most of the time the only thing you have to worry about is severe thunderstorms.
