Living the Downtown Life Style..
Downtown Jonesboro, located about two miles from Arkansas State University’s main campus, is continually rising as Northeast Arkansas’ primary place to eat, shop and live. The hype of this comforting community full of life is starting to spread around the state, and even country, like wild fire!Downtown Jonesboro’s geographic core consisting of Main, Church and Union Streets from about Jefferson Avenue to the Johnson Avenue overpass already is home to some of the tri-state area’s most well known businesses including 13 dining experiences, 9 trending retailers and boutiques, 9 up-scale, modern beauty/health and wellness establishments and 12 cultural art organizations, including one of the state’s most recognized community theaters, The Forum.
Just last year in 2012, Jonesboro was recognized as the City of Distinction for Main Street Preservation from Arkansas Business, a leader in the Arkansas economic media realm, for efforts of bringing downtown back to life and ensuring it stays healthy and historically preserved. In October of 2013, the Downtown Jonesboro Association achieved its goal of becoming an official Main Street community, an affiliate of Main Street Arkansas, a branch of the Arkansas Historic Preservation Program.
You can support us directly by giving donations, or you can even show your support by spending time downtown in our historical community.
Eat. Shop. Live. Downtown.
