Atrip to Arkansas brings you to the crossroads of rural charm, hip Southern twang, and true appre- ciation for Mother Nature. ;e state is home to such unique attractions as the highest mountains between the Appalachians and the Rockies, the nation’s only active diamond mine, and the soothing powers of natural hot springs. ;e weather is warm, the company is friendly, and the air is untainted by bustling city life—all in a
state encompassing six national parks, 600,000 acres of lakes, and nearly 10,000 miles of streams and rivers. Arkansas
has no shortage of jaw-dropping landscapes to explore, and any local Arkansans will tell you that it’s neither a state at
retirement pace nor a strictly rural region.
