Simple Pleasures truly connects!

Simple Pleasures is a 1930s gas station full of 20s-70s iconic autos, toys, neon advertising and more. Like a time capsule, we connect seniors to their youth and warmly reflect memories that define the America of yesterday.

With a trip to Simple Pleasures, our guests don’t just look around; they connect with their surroundings and participate in the fun! Tour groups are entertained by the property owners and enjoy the Simple Pleasures tour elements including a car barn tour, a “Diana Shore” choir, nostalgic activities with a real spinner board and more. They’re also treated to a smoked ribs & chicken dinner and ice cream sundaes before their three hours of fun is capped with a “spinner boy hat” and a big, fat chocolate cookie. Simply put, seniors love Simple Pleasures!

Schedule a stop at Simple Pleasures!

Nestled in the Ozark Mountains in the town of Bella Vista, Ark., our property is lush and green, just like the surrounding area. We’re just minutes from the nationally known Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art and the Museum of Native American History. A stop at our venue goes well with a tour to the birthplace of Wal-Mart and Walton’s Five and Dime, and we’re not too far from the hustle and bustle of Branson, Mo. After a full day of touring sites like these, a stop at Simple Pleasures is relaxing, fun and comfortable.
