Rapid City, S.D., population 65,491, was first on the list. Rogers, is just a 40 minute drieve east of Eureka Springs. Well it is our big city.

They are truly dream towns for sportsmen.”Mountain Home is the easternmost community in the Top 10. A short trip east of Eureka Springs, mountain Home is lovely an scenic.
