  • 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.

  • 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.
