Little Hands Plan Summer Getaways
Jul 03, 2012

We have a busy week planned, what with the celebration of Independence Day right in the middle of our week and whatnot. We'll probably start our day out with fruit painted toast again, like last year's Labor Day post.

As I was thinking of what other fun things to do, I started wishing that I had a more organized way to eliminate all of the research involved in a simple Arkansas trip or activity. Then, it hit me, PINTEREST! I've been on that site for a year now, and not once has it ever occurred to me to make a board just for activities and get-aways in Arkansas for an easy, stress-free web list.

This morning, I googled several different ideas and sifted through sites to find ones that were still working, updated, and held lots of info. Then, I pinned them all to a board titled Arkansas Fun! There are links to zip lines, U-pick orchards, railroads with special events for couples, families, and children, and more. The orchards are divided up by counties so you can find one closest to you. They also list contact info, the list of fruits and vegetables, and maps. There are a couple different links to caverns you can go through with your family, and you can even pan for gemstones! I'm going to continue to add things that I find, and I made it so that others can add links to it as well! If you know a little known Arkansas secret, please add it to the list! You can also check out the July issue of Jonesboro Occasions for more weekend getaway info.

Click here for the board!

Have a happy and safe 4th of July!!

Until next time,
Heather
