Benton, Arkansas

Located halfway between Little Rock and Hot Springs along I-30, Benton makes a perfect home base for those wanting to visit both communities while partaking of Benton's charms as well. The picturesque town square is the focal point of the community. Don't miss the oddity of the Gann Museum, the only known structure in the world made of bauxite aluminum ore. The Royal Theatre, now listed on the National Register of Historic Places, hosts live theatrical productions. Both Benton and nearby Bryant provide antique seekers amply opportunity to search for treasures with several antique malls on both sides of the interstate. The Saline River has excellent fishing, scenery and backcountry floating for the outdoors enthusiast.
