Best of Arkansas 2014 


There are so many bests in Arkansas that the Arkansas Times has to put out this issue every year to cover them all. Last year, our Best of Arkansas issue covered an artist and tattoo aficionado, a water park, french fries and blue politics in a red state. This year, along with a list of all our readers' choices, we're highlighting the Museum of Discovery, Don's Weaponry and the Encyclopedia of Arkansas (which includes an entry on slime molds). Then we asked an interior decorator what he thought about the Times' office. He said it made him want to jump in the river. We're also writing about the rap collective Young Gods of America, with a feature on Altitude Trampoline Park thrown in for some spring.

To help us on our tour of the best of the best, we enlisted Maggie, a Catahoula Leopard dog, who has a nose for winners (but may be permanently afraid of science experiments.)

We've got our editors' picks, too (find best dog, best pre-dinner snack and other iconoclastic bests there), and give you a piece of our minds on pie.

Here, the big list of bests, from clothes to golf courses to liquor stores to liberals.
