Jonesboro's quaint downtown draws visitors from miles away each year. So does Arkansas State University, which boasts an 800-acre campus.
Some visitors even decide to stay. In fact, Jonesboro is going through a population boom. The town, located near the northeastern corner of the state, is now Arkansas's fifth-largest city.
Luckily, there's plenty of land for all those newcomers, which has helped keep home prices low. There are starter homes for under $100,000, and buyers can easily find a well-kept three-bedroom home for $150,000.
These terrific small cities offer strong job opportunities, great schools, low crime, quality health care, and a true sense of community.
