Exploring Arkansas September 2013


The Botanical Garden of the Ozarks in Fayetteville has nine themed gardens, plus the region's only butterfly house. Arkansas' Wine Country in Altus is an officially designated American Vitacultural Area – same as California's Nappa Valley. The history of this wine-producing region dates back to the 1870's when German-Swiss immigrants settled the area and established their vineyards. The state's longest, fastest and highest zipline called the 'Iron Horse' happens to be at a dude ranch near Jasper – it's also one of the top ziplines in North America.
