Twin Falls Trail
If you’re looking for something scenic on your trip then this is the place to go. Nestled in the Ozarks, Twin Falls is truly breathtaking. Go on a hefty hike to see the waterfalls and then take a dip to beat the heat and cool off after all that work. If you’re not into hiking don’t worry! There is also a place that you can park your car that is only a few hundred yards of walking to get to the falls.
Hot Springs National Park
Yet another place in Arkansas that’s great for outdoor adventures and/or just relaxing. If you’ve ever sat in hot springs before, you know just how amazing it feels.

If you want to be more adventurous there are also numerous hiking trails around! And who wouldn’t wanna go on a gorgeous hike and then reward yourself by sitting in the springs after? There are also lots of campsites for those who want to stay for a night or so.
Crater of Diamonds State Park
This one is definitely a unique stop that you can only get in Arkansas! Crater of Diamonds State Park is the world’s only diamond-bearing site accessible to the public. Not only is this a one of a kind stop but it is also a fun activity to take a break from the road. Here you can search for real diamonds in the original volcanic source. But there’s not just diamonds here, you may also find different rocks, minerals, and gemstones, all of which are yours to keep! This is a truly unique stop that offers fun for the whole family.
Of course we couldn’t leave out the big city of Arkansas! Little Rock is the capital of the state and is a great place to stop if you want to see what city life is all about and explore more food, shops, etc. Go downtown or midtown and check out the nightlife. There’s also plenty of restaurants to try! Not only that but there are plenty of shops, museums, and a zoo to check out.
