Arkansas has a number of year round natural attractions to keep outdoor adventurers busy, and the winters aren’t normally harsh enough to preclude off-season excursions. As far as the tourism season goes, from December to March things in Arkansas slow down quite a bit, but rates for hotels go down appreciably.
The holiday season is a good time for sightseeing visitors to drive through the state and check out the Trail of Holiday Lights, when thousands of homes are decorated for the Christmas season.
