Sitting pretty on the watershed of King’s River in the shadow of the Ozarks, Berryville, AR is as historically interesting as it is friendly. The small city features two museums dedicated to preserving its heritage -- not bad for a town of five thousand! The Carroll County museum gives a general overview of the area’s pioneer past, while Saunders Museum focuses on Berryville’s rowdy Wild West History, featuring guns belonging to famous outlaws such as Buffalo Bill Cody and Billy the Kid.
The days of gunslingers and saloons are truly gone, though -- these days, Berryville is known as a quiet, family-friendly town with a real neighborly vibe and a strong sense of civic pride. The town’s community spirit is clear for all to see, from its charming downtown filled with local businesses to the fine showing of enthusiasm at the Carroll County Fair.
There’s no designated dog park in Berryville, but that doesn’t mean you and your pooches should get too "melan-collie!" The town has two parks that are ideal for leashed walks -- Saunders Heights Park in particular is a favourite of local pups and their owners and boasts some lovely views over the city. And if your four-legged pal longs to run off leash, don’t worry -- you’ll find a furrific dog run just a short drive away!
