Eureka Springs • Fort Smith and Van Buren • Little Rock • Hot Springs
The “Natural State” of Arkansas offers travelers scenic delights, 19th century and 20th century historic sites, and plenty of down home relaxation and humor.
Trips to any of the above cities may be stand alone, or may be combined with tours to any of the others.
- Eureka Springs
One of the country’s most unusual towns, built as a Victorian-era vacation spa resort dripping over steep hills. In the 21st century the resort has added many more attractions that collectively give it very strong appeal.
- Fort Smith & Van Buren
This once wild and wooly gateway to the no-man’s land of Indian Territory now entertains visitors with safer and less chaotic activities. You can shop the antique stores of Van Buren, just across the Arkansas River from Fort Smith, see the actual Fort Smith where soldiers were stationed to keep the peace in the lawless parts nearby, and be welcomed at Miss Laura’s Bordello, ideally positioned next to the railway tracks that daily brought new customers.
- Little Rock & Hot Springs
The President Clinton Library and Presidential Museum has added yet another good reason to go to Little Rock. The appealing list of attractions there already was significant: Central High School, USS Razorback, and the Marlsgate Plantation.
- Hot Springs
You’re off the races at this popular spa resort and horse racing destination. Attractions include Bathhouse Row, Oaklawn Track, spa treatments, Observatory Tower, and the Promenade Walk.
