The Diamond Lakes Of Arkansas Are Picture Perfect And You Need To Visit
Arkansas’s secondary nickname is the Diamond State; that’s because we’re home to the world’s only open-to-the-public diamond mine. In addition to the countless actual diamonds that have been found in Crater of Diamonds State Park, Arkansas is also home to five glorious diamond lakes. These diamond lakes are called “diamond lakes” because of their clarity. In fact, you won’t find more sparkly gems anywhere.
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!
