A while back, I was talking with a friend of mine. She had recently moved to Arkansas, so I asked her if she and her family had been exploring any great places here in Arkansas.
She said that she hadn’t found anything worth exploring in Arkansas and it broke my heart.
I’m a native Arkansan and I know that Arkansas is full of so many wonderful things to see, explore, eat, do, etc.
I also know that those things can be hard to find if you aren’t a local.
The locals know all the secrets.
Sure, you can Google it and find faceless websites but what you really need is an Arkansas blog written by someone who actually knows about Arkansas.
In fact, I recently Googled the best things to do in my current city and I was blown away…in a bad way.
This person (who has obviously never been here) suggested that one of the best places to visit and fish is a lake that I know about here in town.
What they obviously don’t know is that the “lake” they referred to is more like a pond. It’s in the middle of a neighborhood, the scenery is terrible, and it’s mostly grown up with bushes.
It’s not a place that people actually go.
They completely failed to mention the actual best place to visit/ fish in our town and that it includes walking trails and workout equipment!
That was the last straw.
I know I had to do something about this problem.
Welcome to the best Arkansas Blog EVER!
I know…that’s a huge statement but it’s true!
This Arkansas Blog is different because it’s full of things to do that are recommended by the locals.
I have typed and clicked until my fingers are exhausted to ensure that you have exactly what you need when you are looking for something amazing in Arkansas.
I have also polled all the Cool Arkansans I know in my private Facebook group.
There are so many great things about Arkansas but how do you know what they are without help?
I mean, a simple Google search can lead to hours of getting nowhere.
It’s like going down a rabbit hole.
Finding fun things to do in Arkansas is like a never-ending game of Monopoly. (You know what I mean. That game that everyone thinks they want to play but then regrets it 5 hours into it.)
You pull up a fresh Google tab and start typing in things like “Best Things to do in Arkansas”, “Fun Things to do in Arkansas”, or “Best Fishing in Arkansas.” Then, you start clicking and scrolling and clicking and scrolling until you’re just exhausted!
There are tons of great things to do in this state, but you want the things that are tried and true! You want the BEST things to do in Arkansas…not just anything that comes up on Google.
You want the best places to camp and the absolute best places to hike.
You want amazing Arkansas made products because you believe in supporting small businesses.
You want to know about fun places to take your kids in Arkansas, but you don’t have time to go down that Google rabbit hole.
So, what’s the answer?
You need an Arkansas Blog written by a native Arkansan that knows.
You’re in luck, my friend!
We’re glad you’re here reading this amazing Arkansas Blog called All About Arkansas.
Maybe I should have just named it “Arkansas Blog??”
BUT this blog is more than just a blog.
It is a comprehensive resource for all things amazing in Arkansas to guide you through this amazing state.
