Congratulations! You made it through 2020, the most stressful year of our collective lives.
Regular readers of OnlyInArk.com know that we typically cover lots of events and other things to do in Arkansas on a weekly basis. In mid-March, covering events got rather tricky. We made the decision not to publish stories about restaurants and events where people could not keep the social distance requirements. We thought this was a temporary decision, but here we are, over nine months later, and we are still focused on Covid restrictions daily.
However, 2020 gave us a chance to focus on things we normally wouldn’t have time to cover when so many events are happening. We wrote about take-out restaurants, outdoor activities and adventures, Arkansas history, local businesses and native animals. And guess what? I think it was one of our best years to date.
Here’s a list of our most popular stories of 2020: the oddest year on record.
