Yesterday was a long haul (Little Rock to St. Paul), so I didn't stop many places and only made one small detour in pursuit of twisty roads. Two attractions were directly on the path home: 1. Bentonville, AR - Home of WalMart and 2. Aeronautic Golden Arches (McDonalds).
The McDonalds was exactly what is shown in the photo - didn't make me want a Big Mac any more than usual. Bentonville, AR was a different story. WalMart is more than the world's biggest retailer - it appears to be a way of life in Bentonville. The entire town is one huge WalMart corporate campus and any other companies seem dedicated to serving WalMart, for example the NCR - WalMart Global Support Center. I unfortunately wasn't able to find the original Walton's Five and Dime, which apparently still exists downtown.
