to Arkansas' Adventure Region Ever

have that feeling that you just want to

get lost? Lost in your own little world, be invisible if only for a second, or a minute, or possibly a weekend? To have true peace. True quiet. To perhaps go back in time before cell phones, before social media, before the internet, and just relax on a two dollar floatie - letting the gentle movement of the waves rock you to sleep.

Kennedy proclaim, “It serves as an example to the rest of the country of what we want to do to make it possible for those who come after us to have a better life.”
