Christmas In These 10 Arkansas Towns Looks Like Something From A Hallmark Movie
Unfortunately, Hallmark has yet to film a festive movie in Arkansas. We know they’re missing out because many towns work hard to capture the wonder that comes with the holidays. Whether they have a cozy romantic feel or inspire families with holiday light magic, Christmas in these Arkansas towns feel like a Hallmark movie.
This small town could be an unexpected winter wonderland for Hallmark's next holiday hit. The hundreds of displays are festive but the park's magical atmosphere are what make it worth the trip.
Fayetteville's town square is the ultimate backdrop for any Hallmark movie. Couple could share a romantic moment in the horse drawn carriage around the square or while taking a helicopter tour above the lights. Families could reconnect while searching for Santa's lost reindeer (Prancer is known to visit the square).
It wouldn't be surprising to watch Hallmark turn Newport's seven giant nutcrackers into real festive soldiers. Even without movie magic, Christmas completely covers the town of Newport.
We're pretty certain Searcy uses some sort of Christmas magic to create such a dazzling display of lights. Over a million are used throughout the town. Berryhill Park can restore a sense of wonder to anyone that's lost their holiday spirit.
5. Eureka Springs
Plenty of Christmas magic happens at the Crescent Hotel & Spa in Eureka Springs, from ice skating to a dazzling tree trail. The whole town turns into a splendid holiday wonderland for the season that could turn any Scrooge into a jolly celebrator.
There's no where better to get snowed in than at a cabin in Ponca. There's quite a few secluded cabins near the Buffalo National River for a nature infused holiday getaway.
7. Van Buren
Celebrate a classic Christmas by strolling Van Buren's historic Main Street. Catch a seasonal show at the King Opera House or just enjoy searching for different goodies in the many shops.
What Hallmark couple wouldn't want to slow dance in Piggott's town square? During the holidays, their 1930's style gazebo is adorned with horses to create an over sized Christmas carousel.
We may not have the Rockefeller Christmas Tree for protagonists to reunite under, but we do have a 54-ft. tree that could definitely suffice. Christmas in Conway features the state's largest tree right next to a full-sized Ferris wheel. If you’d like to watch this giant tree’s lighting ceremony, watch
We've already thought of the plot for this Hallmark movie: imagine a couple mistakenly booking a trip to Paris, AR and still getting to enjoy Christmas in the littler "City of Love." Stroll around the courthouse, kiss in front of the Eiffel Tower, and declare your love on the Love Lock Fence during this festive season.
