The Christmas Lights Road Trip Through Arkansas That’s Nothing Short Of Magical

Welcome to the holiday season, Arkansans. The halls are decked, the lights are bright, and the light displays are—well, they really are stunning. I’d say the light display situation in the Natural State calls for an amazing holiday road trip, wouldn’t you? This road trip I’ve designed for you (you’re welcome and Merry Christmas) is a compilation, a greatest hits of Arkansas’s coolest light displays that you absolutely need to see this season. You’re going to start at Garvan Woodland Gardens and end at Fayetteville’s Lights of the Ozarks, but those two are just the bookends on a whole stack of holiday awesome. So grab your keys and get your kids and your grandma and your neighbors and pile in the car, because no one should miss these lights.

This trip will take you about five and a half hours, and you can find your itinerary here.
