Everyone loves Hardy, and just one visit to this historic Arkansas town will make you fall in love with it too! Nestled on the banks of the Spring River, Hardy welcomes visitors to the unspoiled Arkansas Ozarks. Surrounded by rolling hills in a pristine natural setting, the charming community boasts its popular Main Street, which is always teeming with life! People love walking Main Street and exploring the variety of crafts unique to Hardy, the seemingly endless rooms of antique shops set up in historic buildings, and enjoying the upbeat and friendly atmosphere.
People also love the spirited and beautiful Spring River, with its crystal clear water and many sets of rapids and short waterfalls. There are plenty of canoeing, kayaking, rafting, and floating options; Hardy's outfitters are well-equipped and provide expert knowledge to assist both beginners and experienced water enthusiasts. Launch your own boat from Hardy's Buford Beach, catch some rainbow trout, go swimming, or have a picnic. If you'd like to take a stroll along the banks, Loberg Park has the perfect walking track (and a playground for the kids) to take a peaceful walk beside the deep green-blue water. Hardy's signature train sounds are never far away.
When you’re ready to take a break, enjoy a meal at one of Hardy’s diners, coffee shops or family-style restaurants. While you’re there, you can even catch a live music performance. Hardy’s thriving music scene features many genres from Ozark bluegrass to indie rock, with talented musicians that bring you a one-of-a-kind sound. When it’s time to wind down, Hardy has a lodging option for you. Spend a restful night in a historic bed & breakfast, comfortable hotel, rental cabin or RV spot on the river bank. If that sounds wonderful, just imagine what it's like to live in Hardy! Whether you want a home with acreage, a place in town, or a perfect spot on the river, Hardy has much to offer. Come enjoy and absorb the culture of Hardy!
