People always ask me where they should go on a family road trip and I recommend Arkansas ALL. THE. TIME. They’re often surprised but no one is ever disappointed when they go. Why? Because:

Arkansas has a perfectly unique combination of outdoor adventure, art, history, and fun. It’s perfectly nicknamed The Natural State and my new travel guide will show you why. 

In Arkansas, you will…

  • Bathe in the natural hot springs piped into a bathhouse from 1900…
  • Zipline over a massive crystal mine after digging up your own gemstones (to keep!)…
  • Marvel at the work of a world-renowned sculpture in an outdoor “room” created by another world-renowned landscape architect (art on art, my friends!)…
  • Sip an original cocktail and listen to live local music at a former speakeasy/the oldest bar in Arkansas (originally built by the mob!)…
  • Bike through the forest on one of the nation’s largest continuous parks…
  • Hold a baby alligator, pet an emu, play with a mini-goat (at the same nature reserve!)…  
  • Sit in an oval office replica in the Clinton Presidential Library…
  • Learn about the courage of the Little Rock Nine while visiting Little Rock High School, now a civil rights national historical landmark…

And SO much more. My new guide will show you why Arkansas is always one of my top recs.
