The New Nature Center in the southern part of town is a great place to spend a few hours and relax while either watching the animals from the air-conditioned observation deck or hiking along the several trails which wind around the property.

The Mall at Turtle Creek has many stores of interest.


Jonesboro has a steadily-expanding array of national chains - Outback, Chili's, Olive Garden - so you'll find many familiar names. But there are a growing number of popular independent, home-grown choices as well. In recent years it's become easier for restaurants to obtain the licensing needed to offer alcoholic beverages via membership arrangements.


Jonesboro is in a dry county, but there are a few restaurants and clubs in town that serve alcohol if you have a membership.
