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 h**l. I wouldn't recommend this town unless you're extremely conservative and affiliate with the Church of Christ.
