This week, Arkansas boasts the lowest average gas price in the nation at $1.95 a gallon, according to AAA. The state continues to be an affordable destination for travelers, with plenty of inexpensive locations to visit and activities to take part in.

December offers extra excitement, with the Arkansas Trail of Holiday Lights in nearly 60 communities across the state. Local events and decorations are as varied as the towns themselves, with visitors able to experience live nativities, parades, tree lighting ceremonies, illuminated displays, open houses, concerts, visits with Santa and more.

The Trail of Holiday Lights brochure is available both online at and in printed version. Printed copies are available at all Arkansas Welcome Centers and at participating Arvest, Best Western and Subway locations. You can also request a copy by calling 1-800- NATURAL or emailing [email protected].

Post photos of your experience on and on Instagram (@arkansas) with the hashtag #ArkansasTrailofHolidayLights.
