Welcome Centers

Thirteen Arkansas Welcome Centers are located at strategic points of entry to the state.

Each Arkansas Welcome Center serves the traveling public well by offering a brief respite to travelers. Travel Consultants promote tourism in Arkansas by sharing their wealth of knowledge with about one million travelers annually. Several Welcome Centers offer free Westrock coffee and WiFi.  

Arkansas Welcome Centers are open 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., seven days a week. The centers are closed these major holidays:  New Years Day, Easter, Thanksgiving Day, Christmas Eve and Christmas Day.

Thanks to the efforts of the Governor's Office, the Arkansas Department of Transportation, and the Arkansas Tourism, a Welcome Center replacement program is well underway. Ten new Arkansas Welcome Centers have been rebuilt in Blytheville, Corning, El Dorado, Helena-West Helena, Lake Village, Red River, Texarkana, Van Buren/Fort Smith, West Memphis, and Harrison.
