Motorcycle Touring in Arkansas
Five Rides to Put You in the Natural State of Mind
Known as the Natural State thanks to the beauty of the Ozarks and Ouachita Mountains – plus a multitude of stunning state parks – Arkansas is one place worth touring. Sure, you could gas up the car, or book a flight to Little Rock, but perhaps the best way to get acquainted with this majestic southern secret is by motorcycle.
Fill your ears with the rip roar of your own two wheels skirting along the twists and turns of the Great River Road, the Arkansas Scenic 7 Byway, and Crowley's Ridge Parkway. Run into Arkansas celebrations like the Bugs, Bands & Bikes Festival in El Dorado, or the Arkansas H.O.G. Rally in Hot Springs.
Enjoy the arts of Eureka Springs, or visit the stomping grounds of Ernest Hemingway in Piggott. Take advantage of a soak at the Hot Springs National Park, or try tackling the 225-mile Ouachita Trail in Queen Wilhelmina State Park. Each Arkansas adventure is as unforgettable as the next.
Before starting your adventure through the Natural State, keep these tips in mind:
Keep an eye out for road signs and Arkansas critters.
Helmets are not mandated, but recommended.
Consider the direction of the rising or setting sun before you hit the road.
Keep an emergency kit. You might not be able to get a signal.
Register with Best Western Ride Rewards.
Whether cruising along the Arkansas Delta, or zooming down the stunning Arkansas Scenic 7 Byway, keep an open mind on the open road – this might be your greatest adventure yet.
