There is absolutely nothing to do in Searcy. It is a very conservative town with no activities available. Everything in this town closes at 5 PM.

I would watch out for very conservative and judgemental people. This town is full of people who think their way is the right way, and all others will be burned in hell. I wouldn't recommend this town unless you're extremely conservative and affiliate with the Church of Christ.
