If Arkansas's famed Little Red River seems like it was made for fishing, that's because in many ways it was. The river winds out from beneath the giant dam at Greers Ferry Lake. In 1966, some astute individuals introduced trout into the river, before quickly vanishing into a puff of tartar sauce. Today, Little Red River brims with rainbows, browns, and other trout, and Tailwater Fishing Co. helps anglers of all skill levels catch them all. Expert guides lead trips on the river, supplying all the necessary equipment and expertise.

Wide-open tracts of land roll past as a locomotive charges down the tracks. Passengers watch as the Boston Mountains' peaks and valleys rise and fall. A little red caboose brings up the rear. Aboard one of the Arkansas & Missouri Railroad's trains, passengers take a trip back in time without the aid of a DeLorean. As the train winds across valleys, through tunnels, and over bridges, the friendly conductors spin tales of the area's history. In total, the trains take a 150 mile route from Monett, Missouri to Fort Smith, Arkansas.

When Buddy and Miranda Grimes opened Hog Wild Family Fun Center on August 16, 2009, it initially hosted 32 arcade games and a cozy pizzeria. In less than a year, however, the center had already grown beyond its 4,000 square feet. Now housed in a 25,000-square-foot facility, Hog Wild hosts more than 100 arcade and redemption games, from skeeball to Terminator: Salvation, where players help Arnold Schwarzenegger search scripts for a new career-defining role. With enough tickets, avid players can even net prizes such as basketballs and giant stuffed Smurf dolls.

The arcade aside, Hog Wild also rolls out other fun-center staples, from five inflatables to a pirate-themed mini-golf course aglow in black lights. A massive laser-tag arena with laser maze and cozy bumper-car zone round out Hog Wild, where visitors can reenergize in between activities with snacks such as chicken fingers and frozen lemonade.
