Travel guide giant Lonely Planet recently named Arkansas’ Buffalo National River as one of the best places in the southern United States to escape the summertime heat.
The Lonely Planet is a travel resource that produces print, online and mobile guides that covers hundreds of destinations all over the world. Last week, the vacation guru released an article that featured Southern spots to cool off at during the upcoming sweaty summer.
Among those top-spots was Arkansas’ very own Buffalo National River. Nestled humbly within an article that features large Southern states like Florida and Tennessee, The Buffalo River stood out for its clear waters and kayaking adventures.
The Buffalo River is a popular dog-days haven that locals and travelers alike have flocked to for ages. As one of the only Southern rivers to flow peacefully without a dam, the Buffalo has made a name for itself with its calm atmosphere, scenic views and never-ending exploration activities.
The Buffalo National River does not have an entrance fee. Campground accommodations start at $20 a night.
