Arkansas is a charming state, filled with sparkling rivers, lush forests, granite outcrops, and the spectacular Ozark and the Ouachita mountains. And Norman is well-situated in Arkansas, with easy access to Ouachita mountains, so that you can explore the numerous trails that crisscross this beautiful forest, such as Eagle Rock Loop, Little Missouri Trail, Winding Stairs Trail, or the Talimena Scenic Byway Trail. For something unique, head to the Wegner Quartz Crystal Mines, to dig up your very own crystals! Or relax in the Turtle Cove Spa in Mt Ida. No matter where you go you'll be able to enjoy that tranquil, small-town southern charm. Make sure you try some Yarnell’s Ice Cream, Purplehull Peas, and, of course, traditional southern delights such as grits, biscuits, and okra.
