Start off the new year with some time to relax and get away from the stresses of life. A great choice to visit is Arkansas’s Lower Delta. The region is where Arkansas’s history started. It’s home to great food and great places to visit. And it’s a great place to relax and pamper yourself with a getaway.

First, you’ll need a place to stay and recharge. Check out one of the newest lodging options in the Lower Delta, the Furr House Bed and Breakfast in historic Arkansas City. Another great option is South Shore Cottages in Lake Village, especially if you like being near the water. South Shore Cottages is located right on Lake Chicot, the largest oxbow lake in North America and Arkansas’s largest natural lake.

Now that you’ve made it to the Lower Delta…what to do??? Well, there’s plenty. Do some shopping at Paul Michael’s in Lake Village, Didly’s Marketplace in McGehee or any of the antique shops in Lake Village. You’ll be hungry, so head to Ms. Rhoda’s in Lake Village for some amazing tamales AND homemade pies. Or if you’re in the mood for barbecue, Hoot’s in McGehee is known for its great BBQ options. Time to get out and enjoy nature…so do some bike riding along the Delta Heritage Trail State Park or birding and hiking at Lake Chicot State Park. If you’re a history buff, you won’t want to miss Lakeport Plantation in Lake Village, the WWII Japanese American Internment Museum in McGehee, and Arkansas Post National Memorial in Gillett.
