The One Arkansas Town Everyone Must Visit This Fall
The leaves are going to be at peak color in mid-to-late October, so you have about a month to make your fall plans. I’m going to suggest a day trip to a small town hidden away in the Ouachita Mountains go on that fall itinerary. You’re going to want to walk around Mena, and you’re going to want to visit the surrounding forest and the state park situated there as well.
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/

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.
