Many of the trails pass through the capital city of Little Rock, where you can visit a presidential library, the Little Rock Central High School National Historic Site and museums dedicated to state and military history.


Climate for your trip to Arkansas vacation rentals

Arkansas experiences a mild 4-season climate, with summers that heat up into the 90s and winters that dip below freezing during the coldest times. Summer sees the lowest rainfall levels and is perfect for boating and fishing out on the lakes and rivers or cooling off with refreshing dips. Crowds are higher during this time though, so reserve your Arkansas vacation rental early if you plan to visit in summer. Fall is ideal for scenic hikes and drives through the wooded national parks, as the changing leaves paint the landscape in shades of orange and daytime temperatures cool off into the 60s and 70s.
