A state of both natural and man-made wonders, Arkansas boasts a growing economy as well as protected wilderness reserved for fishing, hiking, hunting and camping. The state hosts headquarters to several global companies, including Walmart, J.B. Hunt and Tyson Foods. Additionally, Arkansas is home to many caves and pre-Columbian burial grounds ripe for exploring. Outdoorsy folks can also dig for diamonds and bathe in naturally-occurring hot springs for healing and relaxation.
