Arkansas attracts visitors from across the nation and abroad. While many people visit Arkansas for rejuvenation, many come for relaxation. The waters of Eureka Springs and Hot Springs have long been known for their healthful qualities. The state has abundant opportunities for outdoor adventures and its natural beauty, as seen in the state’s waterfalls, tour caverns and wild caving experiences, forested mountain trails and scenic drives, is a major draw for many. Even more come to dig for keeper diamonds and quartz crystals. Arkansas is also restorative through the preservation of a lot of its past. With historic forts, vintage buildings and presentations of traditional music and crafts, there is a general sense that life moves at a relaxed pace reminiscent of previous decades. A trip across the state can lead from Mississippi River bottomlands to mid-America’s most prominent peaks; from a legacy of Deep South cotton culture to a town on a Wild West frontier.
