Landmarks of Arkansas Tourism

Discover the State of Arkansas

Although Arkansas is one of the few Southern states without a coast, it is bordered by the Mississippi River and has over 600,000 acres of lakes and 9,740 miles of streams to keep even the most avid boater or fisherman content.

Factor in the great diversity of the land, from the Ozarks to the Mississippi lowlands to canyons decorated with waterfalls, and you've got a beautiful bona fide tourist destination. Tourism in Arkansas accounts for $3.2 billion annually, with Hot Springs National Park and Arkansas' four other national parks listed as some of the most popular attractions. 

Business travelers will most likely find themselves in Little Rock, the state's capital city. Little Rock is home to excellent convention facilities, outstanding restaurants and entertainment, making it one of the most attractive meeting destinations in the South. If you've got a little extra time, check out the IMAX Theatre, the University of Arkansas' planetarium or relive your youth with a trip to Wild River Country, a water park.

Historical Note: In 1686, Frenchmen established the first European settlement on the lower Mississippi River. Near the Arkansas River, it was known as Arkansas Post. The area became American soil in 1803 as part of the Louisiana Purchase.
