The Diamond Lakes Of Arkansas Are Picture Perfect And You Need To Visit

Arkansas’s secondary nickname is the Diamond State; that’s because we’re home to the world’s only open-to-the-public diamond mine. In addition to the countless actual diamonds that have been found in Crater of Diamonds State Park, Arkansas is also home to five glorious diamond lakes. These diamond lakes are called “diamond lakes” because of their clarity. In fact, you won’t find more sparkly gems anywhere.
