Buffalo National River is one of the country's best canoeing locations, with wide stretches of gentle waters and occasional rapids lined by dramatic bluffs and low-hanging trees. Blanchard Springs Caverns is a landmark underground cave system under Ozark-St. Francis National Forest, where families can explore a mystical maze of stalactites and stalagmites. The 210-acre Garvan Woodland Gardens on the water have many easy walking trails for families in a natural setting, while Petit Jean State Park has more challenging and longer hiking trails as well as panoramic views and historic buildings. For a more relaxing outing, head to the beautiful Hot Springs National Park. Its thermal bathhouses and natural hot springs are ideal for soaking in after a day of hiking.
Prospecting ideas for excursions and adventure
Arkansas is unique in that it has the only diamond field in the world open to public mining. You can dig for the sparkling gems at the 38-acre Crater of Diamonds State Park. If you would rather look for golf balls than diamonds, you can follow the Natural State Golf Trail and enjoy the game year-round. Twelve courses located throughout the state allow players to test their skills in a variety of landscapes.
When digging for gems or smacking golf balls seems too tame, then cabin rental guests with an appetite for more strenuous adventures might try mountain biking. Some favorite bike trails include Lake Ouachita Vista Trail in western Arkansas and Fossil Flats Trail in the Ozarks at Devil’s Den State Park. These trails offer moderate to strenuous workouts.
Other options for adventure include whitewater kayaking, fishing or boating on the state’s many pristine rivers and lakes. For those visitors preferring to experience the city scene with its museums and art centers, Little Rock, Hot Springs, Springdale and Eureka Springs are a few of the favorite locations.
Experience Arkansas’s cultural and leisure events
The Natural State provides an array of activities designed to please the most discriminating visitor. Annual events include The Valley of Vapors Independent Music Festival in Hot Springs; the Original Ozark Folk Festival and the Eureka Springs May Festival of the Arts.
The King Biscuit Blues Festival is another popular event which is held in Helena-West Helena in the Delta region. Arkansas schedules activities within each region. From craft beer samplings to arts and crafts displays, to local farmer’s markets, visitors have a variety of choices.
