The Magical Road Trip Will Take You Through Arkansas’s Most Charming Christmas Towns
Most of the kids are on Christmas break by now and the big day is rapidly approaching. As we speak, the reindeer are consuming their enchanted corn and Mrs. Claus is holding Santa to a high protein diet to counteract all the cookies he’ll eat this weekend. But there’s still time to take an epic holiday road trip through Arkansas’s most magical Christmas towns, and you can do just that if you follow the itinerary below. This trip will only take six and a half hours, but I’d recommend you break it up across several days so that you can see as many of the light displays as possible after dark.
