8 Stunning Arkansas Beaches That Look And Feel Like The Ocean

Arkansas may not be the first place that comes to mind when planning a beach vacation but the Natural State is actually better than most all of the big-name destinations. Arkansas beach goers need not worry with shark bites or jellyfish stings. We skip the struggle with plane fare or car rides lasting days. Our sandy shores may be busy during summer but putting up with a crowd of a hundred sure beats out elbowing through a thousand. Let’s soak up the sun at these stunning beaches.

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/
