The Magical Attraction In Arkansas You Have To See To Believe

Springtime is just around the corner, and I’m sure you’re penciling in all the things you’ll want to do after the weather allows you to spend more time outdoors. We are the Natural State, of course, and that means there are a million ways for you to spend time outside. One of those ways of taking in the best of the Natural State will give you an experience you really have to see to believe. Garvan Woodland Gardens is a sprawling botanical garden managed by the University of Arkansas where you can stroll through hundreds of picturesque acres to see a wonderland unlike any other.

Garvan Woodland Gardens is located at 550 Arkridge Road in Hot Springs. You can find directions here.

If you want to see a sea of daffodils this spring, Garvan Woodland Gardens is definitely the place to be. There are 235 varieties of Narcissus on Daffodil Hill, and they'll be blooming in late February and early March.
