On the east side of Arkansas is the Mississippi River and on the north is the state of. The south is Louisiana and west are the Oklahoma plains and the state of Texas. It is the 27th largest of the 50 American states, having over 53,000 square miles with more than 600,000 acres covered in lakes and almost 10000 miles of streams.
There is an equal amount of highlands and lowlands, and there is the Mississippi River Alluvial Plain to the south with the Interior Highlands on the north and west sides of the street. The Ozarks are to the north, and the Ouachita province is on the south side with the Arkansas River flowing through them, creating the Arkansas River Valley.
The Arkansas River isn’t the only river in this beautiful state. There is also the Arkansas River, the Red River, The Quachita River, the St. Francis River, and the White River. With so many rivers and a terrain that has high peaks and low areas, there is no wonder why this state is so lush in beauty.
If the outdoors isn’t for you, there are plenty of offerings indoors too with a great art and cultural scene that is booming with new art galleries, community theaters, concert venues, and museums. From performing arts to visual arts, this state has it all.
IN addition to the tapestry of mountains that is uniquely Arkansas, there is a rich heritage and history here, with a Western Frontier that is a mixture of Ozark Pioneer and Old South. There is an abundance of natural resources, and the residents here will make anyone feel like they are home.
