Much of the 19th-century American interior was wild frontier land and Arkansas’ early days were no different. Inhabited by few people when it was acquired in the Louisiana Purchase of 1803, trappers, hunters, and the Native American tribe of Quapaw forged a living from the abundant wildlife across the region. The state name was derived from the term Akansea, a phonetic spelling of the Quapaw word for Illinois, where the tribe had migrated from.
Becoming a separate territory in 1819, it achieved statehood in 1836. It quickly embraced the plantation economy supported by slave labor as its primary method of commerce. The Civil War decimated the entire region culturally, socially, and financially. It would take the better part of the next century for the state to regain stability. But that it did, even to the point of producing the 42nd president of the United States. And Bentonville in the northwest is home to Walmart, the world’s largest retailer.
Arkansas has drawn visitors to its healing waters for centuries. That people of different nationalities would choose to settle here is no surprise. And with them come their culinary habits. The result is an eclectic amalgam of menus, tastes, and treats across a broad spectrum of offerings versus a more consistent regional style of food.
Strolling the vibrant downtown historic areas of towns and cities across the state, local residents and visitors alike will have challenging choices between Tex-Mex, Bavarian, Chinese, classic Southern cooking, Cajun, Indian, and gourmet pizza. Specialty shops benignly seduce passersby with their sweet delicacies, offering treats as hors d’oeuvres rather than dessert!
A sandwich of locally-sourced Arkansas BBQ washed down with an excellent craft beer at one of the breweries is a lunchtime favorite. And there are several wineries close by where you can sample the local grape and intriguing wine accessories.
Although the hot, humid summers can make outdoor activities challenging, the remaining eight months of the year in the state of Arkansas are a sportsman’s oyster. Hunters vie for the perfect trophy, or stock up on meat for the winter. While lakes are busy with motorboats, water skiers, and jet skis, the rivers offer a quieter, more scenic experience for those who love canoeing and kayaking. Both lakes and rivers support numerous anglers, swimmers, and campers. Mountain trails and the endless forests seem to sprout ever more hikers, bikers, backpackers, and trail runners.
Of note for cyclists, mountain biking athletes and casual cyclists from all over Mid-America come to Eureka Springs to test themselves on the many mountain bike trails that snake through the area. The Oz Trails system of Northwest Arkansas is famous for its variety to riders of all levels, from an easy spin to check out the scenery to those who want to challenge the courses designed for professional riders on the Eureka Springs Downhill.
Caves, caverns, natural springs, and waterfalls offer respite from the summer heat as well as points of exploration for those not familiar with such natural curiosities. Options abound across this beautiful state for outdoor activities all year round.
Arkansas, the Natural State. It might be a toss-up between two of Arkansas’ most famous claims to fame – BBQ and hot springs. While mouth-watering BBQ can be found just about anywhere, we’re talking about another kind of water - the kind with therapeutic elements that draws thousands of visitors each year to the state and even has a city named after it!
These naturally-heated, mineralized waters that flow from deep within the earth are what many people associate with Arkansas, and with good reason. Subterranean streams that reach the surface provide welcome succor to those who place faith in the healing properties of these effervescent waters.
The mighty Mississippi River defines the eastern border, and state and national forests cover large swaths of the state's western part. There are more caves, caverns, mountains, lakes, rivers, and waterfalls than you can explore in a lifetime. The soft limestone that comprises much of the region’s bedrock has been eroded over time by the rivers and sub-surface alluvial channels. No doubt Arkansas is an outdoor enthusiast’s veritable year-round playground.
Another majestic waterway, the White River, originating in northwest Arkansas, loops up into Missouri before arcing back through Arkansas’ Upper Delta on its way to the Mississippi. It is 722 miles of wild and scenic riverscapes.
Located in the western part of the American South, the weather in Arkansas is no different from the rest of the region. Summers are long, hot, and humid as moisture from the Gulf of Mexico continually flows north, keeping the air sticky. The numerous lakes and rivers add to the air's overall moisture content, resulting in sweltering days and sultry nights. With the resident humidity and hot summer temperatures, keep an eye out for those afternoon thunderstorms that can swoop up from the Gulf or pop up for a surprise.
Winters are short and typically mild to cool. With the humidity and dew points maintaining consistently high levels, dampness prevails throughout the year. Visitors who live in other parts of the Southeast US won’t notice anything different. But those traveling from the US's drier parts will want to make sure their B&B air conditioning is in good working order.
This doesn’t mean the weather in Arkansas can’t be delightful. Warm spring days spent sunning on the lake or out taking in the local attractions as the landscape wakes from its short winter nap make for a memorable weekend getaway. Fall colors every bit as captivating as New England’s garner attention along some of the scenic byways across the state.
The state has many destinations worthy of acclaim, but a couple of them are not to be missed in Northwest Arkansas. Turpentine Creek Wildlife Refuge TCWR) is the top-rated big cat sanctuary in the state. Rare, exotic, and endangered species of all types find a home at this outstanding facility. Civil War enthusiasts will want to see the 4300-acre Pea Ridge National Military Park where in March 1862, twenty-three thousand soldiers battled ferociously to hold the state of Missouri for the North.
If you see nothing else during your time in Eureka Springs, Thorncrown Chapel is the one. A stunning piece of design, it was inspired by one of Frank Lloyd Wright’s students. Come and lift a prayer at the 7-story Christ of the Ozarks monument, a landmark seen for miles around that overlooks downtown. Another must-see is The Great Passion Play, renowned for its moving re-telling of Christ’s last week. Supported by live animals and 150 trained actors, these destinations will surely bring some light to your soul.
Lake Hamilton, just south of Hot Springs, entices visitors with water of their choice – hot or cold! Crater of Diamonds State Park, located in the scenic southwestern part of the state, is the only diamond mine in the world where, wait for it… you can keep what you find! On average, two diamonds per day are discovered. Dig for a week and retire, right?
Pamper versus pragmatic. B&B luxury versus hotel efficiency. Log cabin luxury surrounded by a breathtaking mountain view. A bed and breakfast getaway has a way of winning their guests over like that. Host-friendliness, coupled with a romantic getaway and aesthetically pleasing Victorian architecture, is found in many locations across the state and rounds out the sensory delight.
Arkansas bed and breakfast inns work hard to please their guests and with good reason. Innkeepers are passionate about the service they provide.

Upon airport departure, enjoy a relaxing drive to your destination while catching the scenic beauty of the passing landscapes.
For B&Bs located near the historic districts, a walk or a bike ride is a great way to stretch the legs after traveling. You will have easy access to desired attractions including shops, restaurants, galleries, and museums, many of which are within a short distance of each other. And when you can find a trolley, flirt with an old-fashioned “bus” while making new friends onboard as you check out the town’s attractions. For ventures farther afield, the convenience of a cab or your rental car is best.
