Record Shop
“I can't make a list and not include Beale. The history is incredible. Now it's mostly neon and bars. Lots of bars, restaurants, and live music that they think tourists would like. I go maybe once or twice a year. You can have an open container on the street and I think they serve til 5 or 6 AM. It's fun to walk with a drink in your hand. LOTS of great souvenir shops.”

Garden
“Garvin Woodland Gardens is a must. We’ve been many times and will go many times again. It is a 210-acre botanical garden owned by the University of Arkansas. There is an admission fee but well worth it. The holiday light display is astonishing. If you think this is all for adults, think again ~ they have a new Children’s Adventure Garden. It is made for exploration. We have been to Garvin Woodland Gardens in all seasons and see something different every time. ”

Park
“Experience one of the largest urban parks in the country via bike, in the treetops on zip lines, on the water with kayaking, paddle boats or fishing, playground and splash pad for the kids, or simply say hello to the buffalo. At 4,500 acres and with 20 bodies of water, many different experiences are offered, so grab a picnic, plan to stay all day and experience a breathtaking sunset. ”
