Garvan Woodland Gardens in Arkansas

June 24, 2021

Where are some beautiful gardens in Arkansas? 

Arkansas is vastly underrated for its beauty. You’ve just read about the beautiful Garvan Woodland Gardens, in Hot Springs, but are there any others? There sure are! In fact, some of them are can’t-miss places that everyone both native to and just visiting Arkansas should visit at least once. The Botanical Garden of the Ozarks is breathtaking and features 12 themed gardens, as well as a butterfly house. The Bernice Garden, in Little Rock, is also well worth a visit when it’s in season, and in Bentonville, the Compton Gardens and Arboretum are calling your name. While you’re in Little Rock, the Arkansas Children’s Hospital has a community garden that’s worth checking out, too.  

Where can I take a scenic hike in Arkansas? 

Goodness, where to begin! Arkansas is a beautiful place with plenty of delightful hikes you can enjoy, many of which are open year-round. Some of the top-rated scenic hikes in the state include beautiful places like Whitaker Point Trail, nestled in the Ozark National Forest; it’s a short and sweet hike coming in at under three miles in length and is rated as moderately easy. The Lost Valley Trail, located by the Buffalo National River, is also a can’t-miss, and the uniquely named Centerpoint to Goat Trail is a little longer, at almost six miles long, but it’s beautiful and fun to traverse when you’ve got the time to do it. There are more than 800 trails listed in Arkansas by AllTrails.com, and you’re sure to find something you love somewhere with just a little bit of effort. Need more ideas? This article might serve as excellent inspiration! 

What are some things to do outdoors in Arkansas? 

Arkansas is an ideal state for those who love the outdoors! If you can dream it, you can do it, from beautiful places to camp to amazing swimming holes to incredible hikes and everything in between. Arkansas also has – get this – more than 2,400 named lakes and reservoirs, and many of those are open to boating, swimming, fishing, and simply lounging. 32 of Arkansas’ beautiful state parks have great camping available, and the trails here range from the super-short to the super-long (the longest trail in the state, the Ouachita National Recreation Trail, comes in at an impressive 177 miles within state lines).
