The city of Fort Smith stands on the Arkansas/Oklahoma border, in the centre of America's mid-south region and very well connected to other regional hubs such as Memphis, Oklahoma City, Dallas and Kansas City. It began as a military frontier post in the 'wild west' of 1817 and was named after a General Smith. Fort Smith sits in the Arkansas Valley between the National Forests of the Ozark and Ouachita Mountains, in a predominantly quiet, rural region. If you hire a car in Fort Smith you'll soon find it marks the intersection of Interstate Highways 40 and 49, and has a handful of landmark bridges over the Arkansas River.
If you pick up a hire car in Fort Smith, it's easy to explore the city and its attractions. These range from the giant modern Central Mall shopping area to attractions connected with the old Wild West. You'll discover the remains of the National Historic Site, which features the original fort and the restored courtroom of 19th-century 'hanging judge' Parker. Nearby, Miss Laura's Social Club, once a frontier town bordello, is now the city tourist office. Other quirky highlights include a vintage Ferris wheel, a museum of history, a museum of electric trolleybuses and even a museum celebrating where Elvis Presley had his first army haircut.

Please note that from 15 Nov to 15 Apr many cities are required by law to restrict the circulation to only vehicles equipped with snow chains or winter tyres. For a summary of the orders, please visit www.poliziadistato.it. To comply with the regulations, in specific locations subject to this requirement, vehicles are equipped with snow chains - the price is included in the rental charges through the cost of "Winterization Fee". At pick-up if you decide to bring your own snow chains or do not intend on driving on the roads subject to this requirement, you may decline the equipment by signing the appropriate release form. This change will be reflected in the rental charges. For more information on the fees, please click here. In all other regions, we recommend that you check before renting if your journey includes one of the roads subject to this requirement and therefore request the snow chains, if necessary.
