LITTLE ROCK, AR--(Marketwire - August 20, 2009) - Choosing the perfect retirement destination is never an easy decision, but a new Web site from Arkansas's Tourism Division is aimed at simplifying the process for those looking to move to the state of Arkansas. provides visitors with everything from cost of living, health and educational resources to photo and video galleries, lodging and dining information, and even the "Top 10 Reasons to Love Arkansas."

The site also offers testimonials from people who have ended their search for the perfect place to call home after finding Arkansas to be just right!
