There’s nothing quite like driving along Arkansas’s Highway 7 Scenic Byway.

Spanning two mountain ranges, the highway illustrates some of the best views in the state. Driving along the top of a mountain, looking down on a valley, perhaps a river, is striking. In the summer, roadside stands dot the highway selling fresh produce, like juicy watermelon.

In the fall, the trees alight with reds and gold. Perhaps most enticing is the springtime, when driving south you can mark the passage of the season as the buds turn into green leaves. No matter what the season, you are guaranteed a lovely experience on this drive.
