There is a place for everyone in Arkansas, a 176-year-old state with a history and culture as colorful and diverse as its physical landscape. The deep woods of the Ozark Mountains, the wide-open farmlands of the Delta, the slow pace of small-town life or the conveniences and attractions of the big city — Arkansas has it all, including an endless supply of great food, good music, festivals, fishing, hunting, hiking and other recreational activities.
Photo opportunities abound along Scenic Byway 7, many close to the Buffalo National River near Jasper. Canoe trips are popular down parts of the 150-mile river, and the 95,000 acres of public land surrounding the river offer campgrounds, cabins and other lodging, as well as springs, caves, waterfalls, natural bridges, and walking and hiking trails.
Distinctly beautiful, the regions of Arkansas inspire local artists, whose stimulating works can be found in galleries and museums throughout the state, while local orchestras delight listeners with crisp, soul stirring melodies.
