Fall in Arkansas is usually brief but glorious: especially so in North Little Rock, Arkansas. To help you make the most of the gorgeous fall color in Arkansas, we’ve narrowed down the massive list of our favorite spots to five must-see’s.
Burns Park may be just off the interstate, but as soon as you take your first turn, you could be blissfully in the middle of nowhere. The park is perfect for a leisurely drive with gentle curves through wooded hills. For a photo opp, stop by the iconic red covered bridge or the Heilman Cabin. Leashed dogs are welcome throughout the park and there’s a dog park where you can unleash.
Emerald Parkis known for its beautiful cliffs crowned with trees, overlooking the Little Rock city skyline to the east and Pinnacle Mountain to the west. But watch your step and it’s best to bring a friend.
St. Joseph Center of Arkansas is the quintessential sprawling farm, with livestock and gardens to boot. The center has a farm stand on Saturdays so stop by and say hello to the goats and stroll through the butterfly garden.
Fort Logan H. Roots is probably the most unusual on the list, given that the historic buildings are now administrative offices for a hospital. However, taking a drive up to the main circle, you get an incredible overlook on the Arkansas River, the Broadway Bridge and downtown, framed by, yes, even more beautiful trees. NOTE: This is managed by the VA Hospital, and you may have to go through a quick COVID screening process to enter the parade grounds. Go There
