After the hectic holiday season, why not take some time for yourself with a relaxing weekend getaway to Arkansas’s Upper Delta?

Step one – find a great place to stay. I have two great options for you. The Lesmeister Guesthouse in Pocahontas or the Hotel Rhea in Walnut Ridge. Both offer a beautiful home-away-from-home, whether it’s for one night or one week. Both also offer great dining options within walking distance, not to mention beautiful rooms where you can relax and recharge.

Step two – get out and explore! Whether exploring the musical heritage Rock and Roll Highway 67, learning more about The Beatles stop in Walnut Ridge, or doing some shopping in historic downtown Pocahontas, it's all nearby. Want to enjoy some of the nature that makes us “The Natural State?” Head to nearby Lake Charles State Park or Davidsonville Historic State Park. Visit one of the five rivers that call Randolph County home.
