Holiday in Arkansas

Orientation

Arkansas is a landlocked state in the southern United States which shares a border with Missouri, Louisiana, Texas, Oklahoma, Tennessee, and Mississippi. The Mississippi River runs along its eastern border, while the landscape of Arkansas tends to live up to "The Natural State" motto with many forests, valleys, and mountains. Most visitors come to Arkansas by car, however the capital city of Little Rock also hosts regional airline flights into Clinton National Airport. Like most places in the United States the fastest and most efficient mode of transportation is to rent your own car while visiting, providing you the freedom and flexibility to set your own travel itinerary.

Activities

Destination for nature enthusiasts

Arkansas didn't earn the motto of "the natural state" for nothing! From the ever famous Ozark National Forest to Mount Magazine, Buffalo National River to Blanchard Spring Caverns - one could spend years living in Arkansas and still only scratch the surface of the state's outdoor splendors. Luckily for visitors, there are many log cabin homes located near to these national parks so you can fully immerse yourself in all the state has to offer.

Destination for music lovers

Despite its location off the beaten track of other top music cities like Nashville and Dallas, Arkansas hosts many music festivals throughout the year which draw in crowds from neighboring states. Most of these events happen in the springtime, including the Toad Such Daze, Riverfest, and Wakarusa Music and Camping Festival. Along with musical performances, there are also often carnival rides, food trucks, and art exhibitions for the whole community to enjoy.

Destination for science seekers

Unleash the potential of your inner scientist at one of many exploratory museums located around the state. The Arkansas Museum of Discovery is located in the historic River Market District in Little Rock showcases exhibits challenging visitors to think outside of the box and use science to solve some of life's greatest unsolved mysteries. Another family-friendly destination, the Mid-America Science Museum in Hot Springs puts it's focus on partnering with early educators in the area to promote STEM learning and exploring.

The name "Arkansas" was officially put into law in 1881, and was based on a Native American Sioux tribe word. Though the formal pronunciation is based on the French interpretation of the word, the term Arkansas means "Land of downriver people."

Top 4 things to do in Arkansas

1. Hot Springs National Park

Visit the 47 hot springs that have given name to one of the oldest nationally protected areas in the United States. The water in Hot Springs National Park comes down from Hot Springs Mountain at an average temperature of 143° Fahrenheit. Though the water is too hot to bathe in, there are several spas in Bathhouse Row which allow visitors a chance to experience the rejuvenating effects of a long soak. We recommend stopping into Buckstaff Bathhouse for a more traditional experience.

2. Lake Ouachita

Created when the Ouachita River was dammed in 1948, the man made reservoir of Lake Ouachita allows visitors the opportunity to fish, canoe, and camp along the water's edges. The lake is completely surrounded by Ouachita National Park and close to the city of Hot Springs. Lake Ouachita is known as the "Striped Bass Capital of the World," as well as holding a non-stinging rare jellyfish and sponge which are found in only a few freshwater lakes around the world.

3. Ozark Folk Center

The Ozark Folk Center is a cultural site for crafts, music, food, and other Arkansas heritage markers. Alongside its wares, you can also watch live demonstrations and take classes to learn skills such as beginning spinning, soap making, and leather crafting. The Ozark Folk center is located in the town of Mountain View, with close connections to Ozark National Park. There are also several on-site cabins available for visitors to spend the night immersed in local tradition and culture.

4. Gangster Museum of America

Step back into Hot Springs' dangerous history with a trip to the Gangster Museum of America. The museum takes visitors through the periods of 1920-1940 when the opportunities for extreme pleasures brought in many shady characters to participate in gambling and bootlegging. The Gangster Museum of America is divided into several exhibits following notable characters such as Al Capone, Charles Lusiano, and Charles Maden. Play a round in the antique casino during your visit to get a better sense for the kind of legacy Hot Springs holds in the black market history.
