Evening Shade

Evening Shade TV Town

A little town in Arkansas has the same name as the TV show Burt Reynolds starred in. It had an old one room store or gas station, for a "museum/gift" shop. It was fun to stop, and just enjoy the extreme peace and tranquility of that little Arkansas town.

[George Slavens, 06/14/2005]

1995 tourism lit noted: "Fame has led to the opening of a visitors center." We wonder if Evening Shade is remembered as fondly as other '90s TV Towns for Twin Peaks and Northern Exposure? May 2015: Photo added.
