Arkansas Razorbacks (College Football)

The Razorbacks have been entertaining fans since they were formed in 1894. Fans of college football will have a blast attending a Razorbacks game. If you can't attend I suggest going to a tailgate party outside the stadium before the start of home games.

Do not wear another teams jersey or colors into the stadium or else! Just kidding. The half time shows are entertaining and music always plays during timeouts to keep the stadium bouncing.

WildRiver Country (North Little Rock, Arkansas)

Wild River Country WaterPark

The water park opened for business in 1985 and it has 12 total slides, wave pool, lazy river, kids rides, swimming pools, and a water maze. A beach area with sand is located by the wave pool and it's a good spot to chill and get a tan.

Also, Wild River Country has several restaurants and a shaded area for those wanting out of the heat. Several misters are spread out over the park to keep patrons cool during their swimming excursion.

      I love this hub. I would have never even thought about visiting Arkansas until now. That haunted hotel alone would inspire me. Thanks for sharing this. Well done.
