Lake Hamilton is located in central Arkansas, so it’s right in the middle of everything and there are some great trips you can take outside of Lake Hamilton for an enjoyable day. First, you can take a trip of about an hour drive to Little Rock
, which is the state’s capital. Check out the Arkansas Arts Center, Clinton Presidential Library, great food and shopping as well as natural areas like the Arkansas River Trail and Pinnacle Mountain State Park, which are great for walking, biking and hiking. If you’re interested in a one-of-a-kind experience, head to Crater of Diamonds State Park, about an hour away, where visitors can learn about diamonds and rocks found in the area and literally mine for white, brown and yellow diamonds, which are plentiful here. A longer drive will take you to Memphis, Tennessee
, which is a lively city with plenty of activities for all age groups.
