In Arkansas our only stop (other than gas stations) was Hot Springs National Park.
We drove through the little town, stopped at the visitor center and took the tour. There were lots of neat things to see in the baths. Even the kids enjoyed it.
After the tour we drove up to the watch tower. The view from the top is amazing. We spent a long time up there. For a quick trip it was great. We have really been loving our National Park Pass, we got it free through the “Every Kid in a Park” program because we have a kid that just finished 4th grade. Has anyone else used the free pass? Did you get good use out of it?
After the national park we headed due east, across Mississippi and stopped the night in Fulton. We were trying to make good time, so we didn’t make any other big stops along the way.
