Compare Car Rental in Arkansas

Being covered with forests, mountains, rivers, and lakes, it’s a small wonder that Arkansas calls itself ‘the Natural State.’ Every year, visitors flock here to experience the Ozarks, one of America’s most beautiful biomes. However, Arkansas doesn’t just boast crystal clear waters...but also actual crystals. It’s the only US state that produces diamonds. So pack your bags with at least a week’s worth of supplies, because you may spend longer in Arkansas than you expect. Book your car in advance with Enjoy Travel for stress-free travel around Arkansas.

Guide to Arkansas

Geography

Surveyors generally divide the southern state of Arkansas into six regions: the Ozark Mountains, Ouachita Mountains, Arkansas River Valley, Gulf Coastal Plain, Crowley’s Ridge, and Arkansas Delta. Additionally, some identify a seventh, Central Arkansas.

Other than the Ozarks, the most striking geographical feature here is the Buffalo National River, which roughly divides the state in half.

Climate in Akansas

Arkansas experiences hot, very humid summers (June-August) and mildly cool winters (December to February). Rainfall is common during the latter season.

Culture

The Algoquinians used to call the Siouan tribe - the Quapaw - that used to inhabit the region ‘Akansa,’ from which the name ‘Arkansas’ was derived.

Things to do in Arkansas

Traverse the Ozarks

No matter what time of year you visit, you must visit the Ozarks, where you can explore caves, waterfalls, man-made lakes, and forests. The best way to take it all in is to sail down the Buffalo National River, go camping on the shores, and then hike across the wilderness. The Ozarks are great whether you’re traveling alone or with friends.

Remember the Civil Rights Movement

Once, Arkansas was a bed of slavery and racism, but the Civil Rights Movement challenged this. In 1957, nine African-American students enrolled in the Little Rock Central High School, asserting their right to non-segregated education. With the support of President Eisenhower, they successfully began their studies there. Be sure to see their carved likenesses at the Little Rock Nine Memorial.

Appreciate local modern art

Arkansas has turned out not only authors (such as Maya Angelou) but also several accomplished artists. Some of their work is on display at the Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art in Bentonville. Don’t be surprised if you find pieces by Andy Warhol, Alfred Maurer, or Stuart Davis.

Eating out in Arkansas

If you’re in Fayetteville, check out Bordinos Restaurant and Wine Bar, a neo-American restaurant that serves food with Italian influences. The chicken here is as tender as it gets. For a light breakfast with quintessentially American chicken sandwiches, eat at The Root Cafe in Little Rock. In addition to pancakes and waffles, Colonial Pancake and Waffle House, in Hot Springs, serves excellent bacon in a homely outlet. For some spectacular fine dining, head to The Hive, Bentonville. Its dishes are mostly local, but its ambiance makes it perfect for meetings – whether personal or work-related.

Arkansas Transport

Airport

The most important airport in Arkansas is the Bill and Hillary Clinton National Airport (LIT), which has flights to 334 international destinations.

Getting around Arkansas

While in Arkansas, you can always use the public bus and streetcar systems, but the best way to get around is by car. Both the Great River Road and Crowley’s Ridge Pathway cut right through breathtaking scenery. If you don’t have your own vehicle, renting a car is a good idea. Some of the most popular car rental agencies in Arkansas include Enterprise and Avis.
