Stops to make on the drive from Little Rock to Fayetteville

Posted By on Wed, Aug 30, 2017 at 3:20 PM

Two of Arkansas’ major metropolitan areas are Little Rock and Fayetteville, but if you rush from point A to point B, you’ll miss out on a lot of great Arkansas sights. Here’s just a handful of worthwhile stops to make on the drive from Little Rock to Fayetteville!

Altus Wineries

You don’t have to go to California for a wine tour - we have a wine trail right here in our backyard. Several of Arkansas’ wineries are located in Altus, which is just barely off the path from Little Rock to Fayetteville. Stop by Altus to see how your favorite Arkansas wines are made, or for a sip of wine and a snack at the tasting rooms.

Oark General Store

You’ll have to take a bit of a scenic route to get to the Oark General Store, but when you’re driving through the Ozark mountains, is that a bad thing? The Oark General Store is one of the oldest restaurants in Arkansas - it originated in 1890 - and they serve home-cooked meals seven days a week from sun-up to sun-down.

Rivertowne BBQ

For barbecue fans, a visit to Rivertowne BBQ in Ozark is a must. Located just a few blocks from the Arkansas River, Rivertowne is full of charm. Long-time fans say their tender ribs are a must-eat, but from the looks of their menu, you can’t go wrong with anything you order.

Fort Smith National Historic Site

For history buffs, Fort Smith is a stop that shouldn’t be overlooked. You can see the remains of two frontier forts, view the famed Fort Smith gallows, and visit the Trail of Tears overlook — and that’s just the short list.

Is your car up for the drive?

If you’re driving the wrong car, then this road trip won’t live up to it’s full potential. If you’re ready for an upgrade, check out the Nissan Versa - a subcompact sedan with a bargain-basement starting MSRP. This is no box on wheels — even at its low price (seriously — the lowest starting MSRP in the U.S.) the 2017 Nissan Versa offers you technology like bluetooth phone connectivity and steering wheel mounted audio controls.

The 2017 Nissan Versa also sports one of the roomiest rear seats and largest cargo areas of its segment. If you need even more cargo room, the rear seats fold down as well, proving the versatility of the Versa. Additionally, the Versa boasts fuel efficiency that can take you up to 400 miles between fill ups. For the month of August, get $500 NMAC cash back on select 2017 Nissan models, including the 2017 Nissan Versa.

McLarty will beat any price you bring them!

If you’re ready to find your new Nissan, head on over to McLarty Nissan at 1 Colonel Glenn Plaza Dr in Little Rock or give them a call at (877) 880-3835 and let them show your their legendary low prices.
