The closest major airport to Jonesboro is in Memphis, Tennessee (airport code: MEM). There is also a small airport in Jonesboro itself (airport code: JBR).
The main streets to remember are Johnson Ave, Nettleton Ave, Highland Dr, Main St./Southwest Dr., Caraway Rd, Stadium Blvd. These six streets form a sort of grid around town. Another one to know is US HWY 63 as it is how you are going to enter and leave Jonesboro. Southwest Drive, Caraway Road, and Stadium Blvd are all accessible from 63; the other three intersect the three accessible from 63.
The New Nature Center in the southern part of town is a great place to spend a few hours and relax while either watching the animals from the air-conditioned observation deck or hiking along the several trails which wind around the property. Children will love the interactive exhibits in the main building. Fliers at the door contain information on Arkansas hunting as well as other things.
The Mall at Turtle Creek has many stores of interest.
Outback, Chili's... to name the most popular.
Jonesboro is in a dry county, but there are a few restaurants and clubs in town that serve alcohol if you have a membership.
