What to know

Western Arkansas’ Mountain Frontier is just waiting to be discovered. Tucked in between two mountain ranges- the Ozarks and the Ouachitas- it can still feel like uncharted territory. Wherever you choose to stake your claim- on the open road or an epic trail, atop the state’s highest peak or in Arkansas Wine Country- there’s a lot of ground to cover.

Small towns also make great escapes. Check out Alma, Altus, Mena and Paris. Book a stay at the Lodge at Mount Magazine or Queen Wilhelmina State Park. Make time to seek out the true grit of Fort Smith National Historic Site, and pop over to Van Buren, a mecca for home décor and furnishings. What you’ll find on the frontier is history, outdoor fun, unique attractions and events that will bring you back again and again.
