Jones Bar-B-Q has even been featured on CBS This Morning! 10. Dyess Colony Courtesy of Visit Arkansas During the Great Depression, many families in Arkansas lost their homes, prompting President Roosevelt to set up resettlement communities like the Dyess Colony. Here, a young boy named Johnny Cash — who would grow up to become "The Man in Black" — was raised. 11. Big Dam Bridge David Hudson/CC BY-SA 2.0 / Via Flickr: david_hudson Pretty self-explanatory: It's a pretty damn big bridge — 4,226 feet, to be exact. It goes over the Arkansas River, and is the longest pedestrian/bicycle bridge in North America. So if you find yourself driving through Arkansas...maybe don't just drive through it. Stop and have yourself an adventure.
