16 Reasons To Drop Everything And Visit This One Amazing Destination In Arkansas

The Ouachita Mountains are something we share with Oklahoma, but don’t hold that against them. They’re a spectacular place to explore and enjoy some of the most scenic spots in the Natural State. Unlike most mountain ranges, these mountains don’t run north to south, they run east to west. This is just one of the many things that make them so cool. Along with their big brother to the north, the Ozarks, they’re part of the U.S. Interior Highlands, which is one of very few major mountainous regions between the Appalachian Mountains and the Rockies. The best part of the Ouachitas, however, is the variety of things you’ll find to do there. So pack your bags, Arkansans, Arkansawyers, and people from other places, even Oklahomans, I suppose – this is one region that everyone in the U.S. needs to visit.
