One of the best things about Arkansans is that we treasure the drive to a destination just as much as the actual attraction. No matter if it’s taking the long way so we can enjoy one of the scenic byways or making sure we hit every side-stop along the way to our next vacation, we’re not a hurried group of folks. An epic road trip that needs to be taken by every Arkansan at least once is along the Great Highway 65. Drivers can tour the whole of the Midwest from Iowa to Louisiana, tackle the full stretch that covers Arkansas, or just make a day trip of it. Let’s plan a weekend excursion along one of the legs of this main thoroughfare.
