Take This Fall Foliage Train Ride Through Arkansas For A One-Of-A-Kind Experience

Are you looking for the perfect way to see Arkansas’s fall foliage once those gorgeous leaves peak? Well hold your horses, because I’ve found exactly what you’ve been looking for. Actually, if you have horses that sounds like a good way to go too. But horses might not be an accessible option for most people. Have no fear, dear horseless readers, because if you can’t take a tour on horseback, there’s always the train. The Arkansas-Missouri Railroad runs an excursion train that gives you a few options to view Arkansas’s stunning fall foliage. The most popular option for a fall foliage trip can be found here, where you can book your journey. You can go from Van Buren to the community of Winslow, or you can decide to travel from Springdale and spend the afternoon exploring Van Buren’s adorable historic downtown. Either way, the sweeping views of the Ozarks are absolutely stunning.

If road trips are more your style, you should definitely do this one. If you’re on the lookout for fall festivals, here’s your must do list.
