The highs and lows on travel in Arkansas, a look at the facts with Bill Bailey Travel Club.
Continuing our journey through the 50 states, Bill Bailey Travel Club welcomes you to Arkansas, the natural state.
Arkansas is a state divided, at least in its ecology. Unlike many states with a climate that is quite similar across the entire state, Arkansas is one state that offers both highlands and lowlands in virtually equal amounts, making it easy to visit both types of environments. Focused on its natural splendor, this beautiful state offers much to see and do for the outdoor recreation seeker.
Of course, this is not to say that other recreation doesn’t exist here, but in general, the natural world outweighs that of the traditional tourist industry in this state. Bill Bailey Travel Club invites you to travel with us as we take a look at the facts about the great state of Arkansas, an outdoor paradise.
