Discover 11 Wonders of Arkansas
Six national parks. Two and a half million acres of national forests. Seven national scenic byways. Three state scenic byways. Fifty state parks. More than 600,000 acres of lakes and 9,700 miles of streams and rivers. It’s no mystery why Arkansas is called The Natural State. That’s not all this Southern state offers, though. Find everything from the birthplace of Walmart and a statue of cartoon character Popeye to wonderful artisans and festivals revolving around the watermelon. Take a look at some of the state’s surprise offerings. All photos courtesy of Arkansas Department of Parks & Tourism.
