Geocaching Friday: Arkansas’s Great River Road Geocaches

On Fridays, I’ll share some of my favorite geocaching spots throughout The Natural State. Even if you’re not a cacher, the Friday blogs will feature towns and attractions throughout the eastern section of Arkansas…perfect for a weekend trip!

Happy Friday!!

We started our Great River Road Geocaching Project in Arkansas in May 2008 with 10 caches. In the past two and a half years, that number has grown to 29. The caches are located all along Arkansas’s section of the scenic byway, from north of Blytheville to downtown Eudora. I just placed four caches in downtown Lake Village about three weeks ago…and each was found within hours of the postings on!

As of the end of August, these caches have been found nearly 1100 times. WOW!! Geocaching is not only a fantastic hobby for individuals and families, it’s also a wonderful way to introduce people to the many cultural and historic sites and places throughout the Arkansas Delta.

So this holiday weekend, why not get out and find a few of our Great River Road caches? I’ll say this…geocachers are a WONDERFUL group of people!!

I hope everyone has a great holiday weekend! The weather is going to be great…highs only in the lower to mid 80s throughout most of the state…so go caching!!
