Exploring Arkansas December 2016


Arkansas hasn't really been known for alligators, but ever since they were reintroduced in the state, that's steadily been changing. A visit to a swampy lake near Texarkana brings out a few of these pre-historic creatures. One of the best places in the state to experience how life was in a 19th century town, is the Parker Pioneer Homestead located in Whitehall in east Arkansas. One of the state's largest Native American bluff shelters containing petroglyphs happens to be on a golf course in Fairfield Bay. Low Gap Café, south of the Buffalo National River, west of Jasper, is a perfect example that you can't judge a book—or a place by its cover. This five-star restaurant with an acclaimed chef, features a menu filled with lobster, salmon, ahi tuna, shrimp, calamari, steaks, catfish, frog legs and pasta dishes galore!
