Trip Report rkkwan's short TR for short OK/AR trip

Jump to last reply

I have written very lengthy trip reports on the Asia and Europe forums, so I'll try to get do this with the fewest words possible... :)

Who?
Mom, dad and I.

Why?
Saw Continental $99 fare for weekend to OKC. $114 with tax.

Saturday 3/29
CO Express IAH-OKC on a ERJ145. Got 12C exit row for myself. Plenty of legroom.

Got intermediate car from Hertz, though Continental.com special. $24 for 2 days. Corolla or PT Cruiser. Corolla.

I-40 east towards Fort Smith, AR. Few places to eat. Found diner in Salisaw, OK for late breakfast.

Walk around Ft Smith National Historical Site. Drove over to Van Buren, AR to see my ex-employer USA Truck, Inc.

Went north on the newly opened I-540. Then NE through twisty backroads to Eureka Springs. Corolla handles okay, but wish I was driving my Subaru STi.

Passion play not started until April, so whole town very quiet. Checked out the Christ of Ozarks, and the town center. Wonder how crowded it'll be in summer. Had latte and hot chocolate and cake at an independent cafe. Very nice, as it was only about 50F.

Overnight in Bentonville. Got 2.5* Courtyard through Priceline. $48+fees for each room. Very nice.

Dinner at O'Charley's, a Chili's/Applebee's clone that we don't have in Houston.
