Southwest Arkansas

4.1
Unjustly overlooked by tourists, Southwest Arkansas remains a region of lush state parks, rushing rivers, and gentle pastures where conflicting cultures of Christian fundamentalists, hippies, and bikers unite in their love of nature. Set within the eponymous national park, the city of Hot Springs has been attracting visitors for centuries with the healing properties of its thermal springs and baths. The self-proclaimed "Quartz Crystal Capital of the World," Mount Ida boasts numerous family-owned rock shops, restaurants, and a bourgeoning arts community. If you want to dig for diamonds not crystals, visit Murfreesboro--home to the only diamond site in the U.S. open to the public. A Southwest Arkansas tour holds many surprises in store if you're just curious enough to explore. Southwest Arkansas is in Arkansas.
