One-day trips in Arkansas

Arkansas day trips

Looking to get out, hit the road, and explore Arkansas on a day trip? Here are our bets for the top three destinations for a one-day mini vacation in Arkansas.

Crater of Diamonds State Park

This state park has a unique draw: the former site of a diamond mine, visitors can take a crack at mining their own diamonds. You probably won’t get rich, but every year or so, someone stumbles across a real find. You never know!

Delta Cultural Center

Learn about the extensive musical history and cultural past of Arkansas at this museum of Arkansas’ musical heritage. Time it right, and you can even see a broadcast of King Biscuit Time, the famous blues broadcast.

Greers Ferry Lake

Interested in getting out on the water? Check out Greers Ferry Lake, which offers fishing, boating, swimming, SCUBA diving, and more. Perfect for the nature enthusiast!
