Getting to Arkansas

The largest airport in Arkansas, Clinton National Airport (LIT), is located 2 miles east of its capital, Little Rock. Unfortunately, the airport doesn't offer any direct international flight routes, but there are non-stop flights from 14 other US cities available daily. If you're flying internationally, you'll likely be routed through Orlando (ORL), Atlanta (ATL), or Dallas/Fort Worth (DFW). 

The Best Time To Visit Arkansas

Arkansas has fairly mild weather year-round, especially by Canadian standards! However, summers can be hot and humid and winters can bring heavy snowfall near the mountains. Plan a summer visit if you want to go camping, climbing, or white-water rafting. Spring and fall are the perfect seasons for sight-seeing and hiking, though you'll have to prepare for a bit of rain in the spring. In the winter, skiing and snowboarding are very popular, but it can get very cold up in the mountains. 

Arkansas sees a boost in tourism (and hotel prices) during the summer holiday, and again in October when the autumn leaves are on full display. We recommend visiting during spring or early fall for the best combination of comfortable weather and budget-friendly travel!
