Great mountain music, art, food, people
Not much open on Sundays (even restaurants)
In a nutshell
Beautiful Mountain Landscapes, Spring Water Swimming holes
There are a number of theatres with mountain music shows in the evenings: The Ozark Fok Center Auditorium, Brickshy's Backstreet Theatre, Jimmy Driftwood Barn, Cash's White River Hoedown, John Taylor's Laid Back Pickin', etc. And, as mentioned in my "Don't Miss Activities" guide, jam sessions around the town square, so there should no excuse for just sitting around your room at night, unless you're plum tuckered out!
One thing we learned - the list of performers at many venues varies each evening, so ask around, starting with somebody local at wherever you're staying, for recommendations on the best place to go that particular night.
Dress Code: Nothing will get you stared at like dressing up fancy - no ties, no coats. A cowboy hat or a baseball cap will fit in nicely - as long as it's not clean and new.

Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Shoes for hiking in the mountains
Toiletries and Medical Supplies: Mosquito repellent
Photo Equipment: I rarely use my video camcorder, but pulled it out to record some of the music-making. You can't really show the home folks what Mountain View is like with still photos.
Camping/Beach/Outdoor Gear: We saw some nice camp grounds, especially around Sylamore Creek and at the Blanchard Springs Park, so if you like to camp, this is a good area for you.
Miscellaneous: Easily portable lawn chairs come in handy when you're wandering around listening to various musicians on the town square.

This tip is added in honor of my daughter Allison, a fifth grade teacher whom I love and respect deeply. (All I could remember seeing at this "town" was a gas station, a bridge over the White River, and this sign.)
Here's to you, Allison!
