Visit Arkansas- The Natural State

Arkansas calls itself “The Natural State” and although it may not be the first American travel destination which springs to mind when planning a vacation to see America, it has a great deal of beauty and interest to offer the discerning visitor.
Dominated geographically by the beautiful Ozark Mountains, Arkansas offers a treasure trove of state parks with marvelous site-seeing and the whole gamut of outdoor activities – camping, canoeing, white water rafting, fishing, hunting, bird watching, swimming, hiking, sailing, caving – even digging for diamonds. Some of the earliest national parks in America are to be found in Arkansas, and the State's early recognition of the importance of preserving and maintaining the environment is reflected in the high quality of the experience of each and every visitor. In fact there are fifty two State Parks – one for every week of the year, so you'll never run out of things to do.
Some of the natural highlights of Arkansas include the old Cave Tours of Blanchard Spring Caverns, the only caves operated by the Us Forest service, the Buffalo National River, Mammoth Spring State Park, Crater of Diamonds State Park and Lake Dardanelle State Park, which is home to some of the best bass fishing in the USA.
Arkansas has a long history, and there are many important civil war sites to visit, including Prairie Grove Battlefield State Park, the site of one of the key Civil War battles of the region. You can also visit the childhood home of President Bill Clinton, one of many historic sites to have been preserved, including an entire Victorian village to explore, Eureka Springs..
For the lover of crafts, each year in fall the War Eagle Crafts Fair attracts artists and craftsmen from all over America to present their wares to the public, and for the collector, this more than fifty year old institution is an un-missable event.
There are museums aplenty, including one dedicated to the history of Wal-Mart, and important art galleries, the foremost of which is the Crystal Bridge Museum of American Art, which as the name suggests specializes in American artists and offers some superb exhibits and educational activities.
It goes without saying that cultural activities loom large in the Arkansas year, in particular, gospel, folk and Delta blues music festivals and related activities can be found in every part of the State throughout the year.
Once you start exploring the possibilities of Arkansas, you will be eager to visit this most attractive, interesting and welcoming part of the southern United States.

Arkansas annually attracts hundreds of thousands of visitors from across the nation and abroad to its wide variety of Festivals, Fairs, Sporting Events and Competitions.   Many of Arkansas’ visitors are are initially drawn to the State’s abundant opportunities for outdoor adventures and to its natural beauty, but once you arrive - you will find that there is always something “Big” going on.  The people of Arkansas are proud of their events and welcome you to attend.  Take a week or a weekend and enjoy the Spirit of Arkansas.  See More!

Arkansas - Big in Events Spirit!

An Arkansas  Ride back in time

The old South isn't completely gone with the wind in North Little Rock. A short drive from McCain mall will bring you to a quiet, tranquil place that looks like something from an old movie. As a matter of fact, it was featured in the opening scene of Gone With the Wind. It's believed to be the only remaining structure from that film. So, put on your hoop squirt, grab your parasol and your "twiddly dee dee" attitude and come for a visit.
