Biographical/Historical Note

Arkansas is a geographically diverse state, with heavily-forested mountains, flat croplands, and numerous rivers and lakes. As a result, Arkansas is home to many beautiful, scenic areas, earning it the nickname "The Natural State." These natural features provide numerous recreational opportunities, such as hiking, canoeing, and camping, and make Arkansas a popular tourist attraction. Hot Springs National Park has the distinction of being the oldest federally-protected park, officially becoming a national park in 1921. The first state park, Petit Jean, soon followed in 1923. Many more recreational and historical parks can now be found throughout the state. Cities and towns such as Little Rock, Eureka Springs, and Fayetteville offer numerous cultural attractions as well.
