From Oxford, MS to Searcy, AR is mostly flat delta farmland. Not a lot to see other than farms and open areas. While in Searcy, I recommend visiting Honda of Searcy, the third largest Honda motorcycle dealership in the US. From Searcy on northward towards Heber Springs the scenery improves. The scenery and roads from Heber Springs on up to Mountain Home dramatically improve. Good curves, lakes and dams, rivers and quaint little towns worth stopping in for a look around. From Mountain Home over to Harrison, just a four lane highway. However, things begin to change as you turn south on highway 7 and begin to climb into the Boston Range of the Ozark Mountains. There are many fantastic vistas (with places to stop), great twisty curves, beautiful forests, lakes, rivers and canyons. Not many gas stations between Harrison and Russellville so be sure to top off your tank.

The Mississippi part of this route can be made into a dam fun trip by taking scenic loop 333 across the Grenada Lake Dam northeast of Grenada, Mississippi, and taking 315 across the Sardis Lake Dam just east of Sardis, Mississippi. 315 north from Highway 7, between Oxford and Batesville, has some of the finest curves in North Mississippi, but the sharp one as you approach the dam from the south often has gravel in it from the parking lot. Don't forget to enjoy the visitor centers at the dams, ask plenty of dam questions, and take all the dam pictures you want. The Oxford square at the intersection of Lamar and Jackson has some of the best food in the South, not to mention the gorgeous campus of Ole Miss.
