Arkansas borders the Mississippi River, with abundant parks, mountains, caves, and hot springs. You’ll find no less than 50 state parks, 7 national parks, and 3 national forests – all of which are great for hiking, biking, kayaking, bathing, and other active adventures in nature. The Ozark–St. Francis National Forest attracts explorers looking to visit the Blanchard Springs Caverns, while the Hot Springs National Park has plenty of resorts with thermal baths containing naturally heated water. 

    A road trip through Arkansas often leads you to many towns and cities, most of which have family-friendly attractions, historical sites, fascinating museums, and diverse shopping opportunities. There are also unusual activities you won’t find elsewhere in the USA, such as searching for real diamonds in the Crater of Diamonds State Park or exploring the ghost town of Rush in the Buffalo River National River Park.
