You don't actually have to leave the United States to get a memorable travel experience. The US is filled with beautiful states, each having their own unique characters waiting to be explored.

One of the must-travel destinations is Arkansas. The whole state is bustling with attractions and travel excursions that will fill your travel-hungry soul. Don't know where to start? Here are the top things to do when traveling Arkansas:

Go diamond-hunting at Crater of Diamonds State Park. Arkansas is the only place in the world to have a diamond mine that is open to the public. While the hours away searching for diamonds in the 37 ½-acre plowed field of the entire park, and if you're lucky to find one, the diamond is yours!

Go hiking. Explore the wilderness side of Arkansas by going on hiking trails. Don on your hiking gear and sturdy boots and pick from the extensive choices of hiking routes found in the state. In Petit Jean State Park, you can tread the beautiful trail of the 95-foot Cedar Falls, and in Whitaker Point Trail, discover the hype why it's called the most photographed natural site in Arkansas.

Have the time of your life at Magic Springs and Crystal Falls Water and Theme Park. Forget Disneyland. This theme park boasts of thrilling rides and family-friendly activities. Have the guts to try Arkansas Twister, Plummet Summit and the Sky Shark? If not, you can participate in equally fun but more kid-friendly rides like Rum Runner Pirate Ship and the Diamond Mine Coaster.

Take a trip into the past. History buffs will surely love Arkansas' heritage trails. There are four routes in all, named Butterfield Trail, Civil War Trails, Southwest Trail, and Trail of Tears. Every one of these trails will take you to certain historic sites just like the Clinton Presidential Center and the Old State House Museum.
