|Belle Point, Arkansas River|
Southern charm and the wild, wild west come together to make Ft Smith, Arkansas, a fun place to visit. Okay, so the wild, wild west is historical but you can revisit the days of Judge Parker's infamous courtroom at the Ft Smith National Historic Site.
If you visit the site, take the time to walk down to the river and see the original Belle Point, where the first fort was built in 1817. Today you can see the foundations of the original structures and the Trail of Tears Overlook.
|The Clayton House|
The Clayton House in the historic Belle Grove District showcases the lifestyles of affluent residents in the late 1800s and early 1900s. It's well worth a visit.
|Downtown street art|
Love street art? Ft. Smith's "The Unexpected" art project has brought world-famous artists to create public pieces that enhance the city.
I'll be back there in a couple of weeks and I can't wait to explore more!
