Traveling Arkansas Back Roads, Airports, and GPS Addresses 2015

Every Road Has Multiple Names or Designations
I am not sure if this is true in every community in North America, but in Arkansas, each street, avenue, boulevard, highway, and even freeway can have at least two different designations or place names. Sometimes roads have more than two names. Even more confusing is that in Arkansas and most of the South, residents may only know nicknames, or understand directions by long gone markers or landmarks. If you are not "from around here," it can be quite confusing.
It is my hope that travelers consider Arkansas a good place to visit.
To make it a little easier on travelers near and far, I have included maps, some highlighted areas, and addresses for GPS directions, for such important destinations, as the Bill & Hillary Clinton National Airport, in Little Rock, AR, or Will Rogers Airport in Fort Smith, and several popular hotels.
Please enjoy your journey, and do not forget to visit many of the little towns off of the main highways. In many places they have clung to the past, and continue with celebrations honoring Boll Weevils, Tomatoes, Strawberries, Peaches and Watermelon. If you get a chance to catch a festival, you will enjoy fruit and other edibles done up in a way you could never imagine.
Remember, Arkansas is a good place for a frugal vacation. Your travel dollars will go much further here. Although Arkansas has painted herself as ignorant and racist, there are many good and loving people who are friendly and caring. No matter what their political agenda, if you get broke down on the side of the road, chances are you will find help from any sector of people.
Peace and safe travels.

In and Out of Arkansas
So...you have finally saved up some extra money ,you and your people can take a little vacation . In today's economy, the traveler really has to make each dollar count.
Where can you go for vacation and get the most value for your dollar?
How can you get there? Do you want to take the slower old Highways & By-ways?
If you are interested in history, and would like to go over the ground that is historical, the Arkansas Parks & Tourism has added The Heritage Trail signage to roads where the Trail of Tears, The Butterfield Trail, The Civil War, and Southwestern Trail occurred.
Are you able to take a flight in? and Can you do it within Budget?
Yes. Little Rock, Arkansas has a lot to do, and it can all be done on a limited budget.
As Fall and winter come to our Natural State, we have the Arkansas Razorbacks who have some serious College Ball Fans, but you ain't seen nothing until you have tailgated to a Razorback game, and sported an Uncle Hoagie Hog Hat!
Our city hosts two large events each Fall. The Susan G. Komen race for the cure , and the Arkansas State Fair . The Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure are held all over the Nation, but what happens in our streets of Little Rock, is the biggest love fest you have ever felt. When you join these survivors, ladies and their menfolk, you will be guaranteed to have been moved in your heart.
The Arkansas State Fair is probably where they first decided to fry a Snickers Bar and then later; why the heck not, fry some Dr. Pepper! I can hear them now... The Arkansas State Fair is a decent sized fair, with good rides. A lot of safety measures are in place to keep it family and fun. The worst part is the parking, but that seems to be a common theme everyplace here.
Hunting, Fishing & Bow Season
In order to get you in and out of Arkansas, I am going to mention a few other spots bordering our State, because there are lots of festivals, football and hunting activities happening.
Bow season opens October 1, 2015 at Sunrise.
When Fall comes people's moods improve tremendously. Our Summers are Hot, but the summer of 2014 was the Hottest on record. There was also, a very hot fall. We were past the bad mood, into plain whipped. Our crime rate even went down.
When it cools down, we come back to life, and cannot wait to put some extra clothes on, to warm ourselves back up. This is the time of year that our menfolks can be found trolling the isle's of Wal-Mart, not for 2-Legged Deer, but for the stuff to git them a 4-Legged Deer.
For those of you who feel bad for Bambi, and don't like hunting, please do not be alarmed. The majority of killing that happens in these woods are 6-Packs, 18-Packs and the famous Keg Buck . I do not mean to alarm you, but these guys will kill Beer all day long, just to watch them die. The men stay out in the woods all week, eating all the goodies Momma packed for them; "just in case they don't get anything", they do not have to bathe, and they do not even have to change their clothes. Oh, the stories they will tell...
All week long, Lilly has been gathering photos, gps addresses, and cool places for you to eat and stay. Doe's Eat Place, Hibernia Irish Tavern, Shogun Japanese Steakhouse, Sticky Fingerz Rock and Roll Chicken Shack, Terrace in the Green, and many more.
Lilly has included places for those staying out of the woods to go visit: The Arkansas Repertory Theater, Clinton Presidential Center, Heifer International Headquarters, the Arkansas River Market Area, and The Loony Bin Comedy Club.
Hurry back soon!
