J.B. Weisenfels has lived in rural Arkansas for three decades. She is a writer, a mom, and a graduate student. She is also an avid collector of tacky fish whatnots, slightly chipped teapots, and other old things. In her spare time she enjoys driving to the nearest creek to sit a while. If you were to visit her, she'd try to feed you cornbread.
Garvan Woodland Gardens, a botanical garden owned by the University of Arkansas, is 210 acres of splendor. This total dreamscape is located in Hot Springs. With 4.5 miles of shoreline on Lake Hamilton, it’s the perfect place to take in flowers in the spring and summer and gorgeous leaves in the fall, but when the weather turns cold and the holidays approach, something truly awe-inspiring happens: Garvan Woodland Gardens becomes one of the most beautiful holiday light displays in the whole of the Natural State. You’ve simply got to see Garvan Woodland Gardens’ Holiday Lights.
