This Historic Park Is One Of Arkansas’ Best Kept Secrets
It seems that travelers to today’s state park fall into two categories. They’re either from around the area so naturally, it makes sense to visit; or, they’re dedicated folks working towards seeing all 52 state parks on their Arkansas bucket list. Both are completely valid reasons to come to the park but today we’re hoping to spread the word about southern Arkansas’ (not so) best-kept secret. Let’s feel like we’ve traveled back in time as we scroll through the Historic Washington State Park.
We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/
