Exciting adventures such as hang gliding, rappelling, and rock climbing, along with camping, hiking, cycling and spectacular views from its eight scenic lookouts await at Mount Magazine, Arkansas's highest peak. Nearby Lake Dardanelle State Park features four aquariums and over 50 fishing tournaments annually.
Or experience history at Fort Smith, offering museums, galleries and exhibitions about the taming of the Wild West. It also provides a convenient starting point for two of the state's scenic highways, US 71 and I-40.
And no trip would be complete without a tour of Arkansas' Wine Country where you can enjoy tours, wine tastings and special events.
