• Midnight Oil - Searcy, Arkansas

      Roadtrip Attraction
      Nestled next to a conservative Christian university in a very conservative community, Midnight Oil is a surprisingly hip coffee house that seems to have been transported from the west coast. You're more likely to hear The Grateful Dead playing than gospel or country. And the homey atmosphere (the building is in fact a converted house) and ample selection of gourmet beverages and sandwiches make it an ideal pit stop. Furthermore, you'll have the satisfaction of knowing that part of your money goes to a worthy cause: the cafe is owned by The Kibo Group, which helps develop impoverished communities in Africa.
