Any trip into central and southern Arkansas should include a stay in Hot Springs. You can explore the very popular Hot Springs National Park, and you’ll find a bounty of adventures within Lake Catherine State Park. Hot Springs will also be hosting a number of excellent events this fall you’ll certainly want to check out.
On November 4th and 5th you’ll want to make your way to the Arlington Spa for the 20th Annual Autumn Haiku Conference. Hosted by the Arkansas Haiku Society, this two-day event will feature guest poet and speaker Dr. Johnye Strickland. Not long after all the haiku fun, check out the 17th Annual Taste of the Holidays, held this year at the Mid-America Science Museum from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. on November 17th.
