Arkansas Vacation Packages

Look for Arkansas travel deals offered by individual properties, individual city chambers of commerce, and the state tourism board. There are tour companies in the larger cities and major resorts, from which you can purchase guided tours of specific sites and neighborhoods. For instance, in Little Rock, you can purchase a half-day tour of the capital city, or a simple visit to the Clinton Presidential Library.

Some packages are tours that will include transportation in a motor coach that travels from place to place. These types of packages are almost all professionally guided, and will have a tour leader. Often times, local guides with expertise in the history of certain areas or attractions or will join the tour periodically. These Arkansas travel deals will generally include some tours, tickets to events, or admission to certain sites.

Another attractive feature of some Arkansas vacation packages will be the inclusion of car rentals, so you are able drive from place to place at your own pace and make detours to explore off the beaten path. This is a great way to discover hidden gems such as little pockets of history, charming undiscovered bed and breakfast inns, and secluded hiking trails.

Certain other meals, sometimes in special dining venues, may also be part of the package. This can definitely keep the cost of your visit down, but be aware that many packages will not provide a refund to you if you choose to miss a tour, meal, or other included feature.

Many of the spas around Eureka Springs and Hot Springs will offer Arkansas travel deals that include lodging and spa treatments. These are often offered around holidays or events, such as honeymoons Valentine's Day packages or the Eureka Springs Mardi Gras. You can even book at weekend package at the "Most Haunted Hotel in America," the 1886 Crescent Hotel in Eureka Springs. Many of the cabin rentals available are small—or "cozy"—and there are often packages that cater specifically for couples looking for a romantic getaway.

Many of the hunting and fishing resorts will offer cheap Arkansas vacations even during the height of the fishing and hunting seasons. Hunting is probably the most expensive kind of package, since trophy fees are involved. Additionally, unless you are an expert familiar with the territory, it's unwise to hunt without a licensed guide.

If you spend some time doing your research and shopping around, you can put together really cheap Arkansas vacations by taking advantage of the many deals you can find offered by individual hotels, attractions, restaurants, and even communities located around resort areas like the lakes, rivers, and mountains.
