This year’s issue of Road Trip creates travel itineraries, from 48 hours to 30 minutes, to Arkansas destinations. We do this so you don’t have to. We’re a full-service publication.

Say that, like the Times, you’re ensconced in Central Arkansas and only have a morning or an afternoon to get away. We have some ideas for that.

Or maybe you feel like a weekend in the Ozarks. Or you’re on the way to somewhere else and you need a break. We have some ideas for you there, as well.

So, put a bike on the car, or a kayak, or pack a suitcase for a nice dinner out where the liquid refreshment comes in crystal. Maybe include your hiking boots along with your little black dress, and a pair of binoculars.


We all need to get out, do some sightseeing, eat pie, spend money if we have it, enjoy what’s free, too.
