Arkansas Topography and Natural Attractions

The name Arkansas comes from a Native American word describing the Quapaw or Arkansaw tribe, meaning "people who live downstream".  In southeastern Arkansas, the land is low and flat, affording good growing conditions for cotton, rice, and soybeans.  Northwest of Little Rock, the higher ground of the Ozark Plateau gives way to hills and the Ouachita Mountains.  The Arkansas River, and the state's other rivers, drain into the Mississippi.  Hot Springs National Park, with its mineral water spas, is a popular Arkansas tourist destination.  For additional Arkansas travel and tourism information, visit the official Arkansas tourism site and Arkansas Atlas
