Current Resident: Melbourne is a small town in Izard county Arkansas, with a population of a little less than 2000 people. This town has one of the lowest crime rates in the country. The crime rates here are so minimal that it is non-existent. Residents here don't even lock up their cars or houses! They are very friendly and everyone here knows everyone.
Melbourne is the home to the main campus of Ozarka College, a two-year tertiary institution. The college recently introduced an aviation course, which had its first set of students successfully graduating last year and had a significant increase in signup this year.
There are a few restaurants, two supermarkets, two small parks and a farmers market here in town. As for entertainment, there isn't really any; one would have to travel to neighboring towns to go to the movies, etc. Overall, if you want to live in a small town, with basically a non-existent crime rate, with really friendly people, then the town of Melbourne is the town for you.
