It started as a dream by two brothers over 50 years ago with 5,000 magnificent acres of natural beauty in the Ozark foothills.  A major attraction was the free flowing Strawberry River, which carved a large loop through the park-like setting.  And, thus the name became Horseshoe Bend.
Today, the well-planned city boasts recreational lakes, a marina and RV park, championship golf courses, hotel and timeshare accomodations, fine dining, tennis and bowling, plus full city services, including an airport.
So if you are considering retiring or relocating, then you really should take the time to visit Horseshoe Bend and meet some of the friendliest folks anywhere.  The carefree lifestyle enjoyed by residents and guests of Horseshoe Bend is unforgettable.  One visit may change a family's outlook on vacationing, resort living, retirement and the future!
