With more than 600,000 acres of lakes and over 9,700 acres of rivers and streams, Arkansas has clearly earned its nickname, "The Natural State." Outdoors people, history fans and film buffs alike will all find that Arkansas has something extraordinary to offer. Make sure to stop at these family friendly places for an awesome vacation:
War Memorial Stadium
This stadium was built to honor the Arkansan soldiers who died during both World Wars. When it opened in 1948, there was no seating on the North and South sides. Today, those areas have been filled with seats, over 54,000 total, to fit the growing crowd cheering on the Arkansas Razorbacks football team. Over 200 games have been heldat War Memorial Stadium,many face-offs with longtime rivals, Louisiana State University. In additional to football, the stadium is a choice venue for many concerts and speaking events that are held in Arkansas. Billy Joel, The Eagles, Elton John, and even The Rolling Stones have all performed in this historic venue!
Children's Theater at the Arkansas Arts Center
Stop in at the only professional theater company in the state that produces children's literary works. Imagination comes to life in the fully-staged productions at this theater, a part of the Arkansas Arts Center. All performances feature incredible characters, lighting and costumes. Drive over to the Children’s Theater for a production of children's favorites like "Go, Dog. Go!," "Pinocchio" and "Rumpelstiltskin". For kids ages 10-18 interested in becoming an actor, check out the Summer Theater Academy, an audition-only three-week theater training program. There are also after school programs, workshops and classes for actors of all ages.
Wild River Country
If you visit Arkansas in the summertime, you'll notice the average temp for the season is between 72 and 93 degrees Fahrenheit. That's pretty hot! To dodge the scorching heat, head over to the state's largest water park for some crazy cool fun! This 26-acre park has rides for kids, grown-ups and everyone in between. Ride solo or with a friend down the 500-foot Pipeline water slide or check out the Cyclone, a four-person raft ride. Prefer to go without the tube? Check out Vertigo. This ride takes you down a tube and into a huge bowl where you'll go around and around until splashing into a pool at the bottom. There are also mellower options like the Tad Pool with smaller slides and tree frogs! Volleyball and a swimming pool are also available if you're looking for more relaxation than exhilaration. Pack up your swim suits and head to Wild River Country for fun in the sun with the whole family.
