Five Great Arkansas Spring Break Roadtrips.
As you may already know, Hunter and I have already conducted some exhaustive research on some of our better known highways (you can read about our Scenic Arkansas Highway Seven trip here, or catch up on our Spring Break on 71 here). So we can both tell you first-hand about the joys of traveling a highway and enjoying the great things each one has to offer.
But in case you're new to this concept, here are five highways you can take for adventure and fun in Arkansas.
Scenic Arkansas Highway Seven. The longest Arkansas state highway, this route takes you through almost every sort of terrain you can experience in the state (except the Delta). Start in El Dorado and enjoy its remarkable expanding downtown. Head north to Camden and catch the daffodils. At Caddo Valley, stop in for fresh baked hand pies at Front Porch Bakery. Spend a night in a yurt or at the lodge at DeGray Lake Resort State Park. Relax in Hot Springs and schedule a bath on Bathhouse Row. Drive through the Ouachita Mountains and up through Russellville into the Ozarks. Spend time in Jasper and head east to view elk in Boxley Valley. Wrap it up with time on Bull Shoals Lake.
