Have you ever thought about wanting to be more environmentally conscious while on the road? If so, you are not alone. Vacationers as well as business travelers are mindful of the impact they make on the natural resources of their destination city and are looking for eco-friendly travel options. With that in mind, the Arkansas Department of Parks and Tourism launched www.greentravelarkansas.com.
Choosing to rent a bicycle and touring our many urban and rural trails or searching out a slow food dining establishment are just a few of the little things that will make a giant step to preserving our planet. The Natural State offers an abundance of green options to those visiting Arkansas. Now, there is a comprehensive website dedicated to green travel information.
This new website contains sections featuring Arkansas green lodging, dining, and attractions including a list of LEED certified buildings. Looking toward the individual traveler, a section offering ideas to help the tourist find wellness options such as yoga studios and running trails is also included. The Department has even added a tool to help you keep a little green in your wallet. Special promotions offering green discounts and packages are available by clicking on the Arkansas Green Deals and Packages tab.
