The Tourist Attractions in Little Rock:
Springdale isn’t generally considered to be a tourist destination for visitors from overseas as there’s not much in the way of tourist attractions here. A museum and some spectator sports make the main attractions in Springdale, but with the scenic town of Fayetteville nearby, and the Ozarks, Springdale should not necessarily be discounted altogether.
Shiloh Museum of Ozark History
Springdale is situated on the Ozark Plateau so visitors to this city can enjoy the surrounding scenery and a visit to the Shiloh Museum of Ozark History, located in the city. This regional museum specialises in the history of the Arkansas Ozarks and has the largest collection of historic images in the state of Arkansas.
The Ozarks themselves are a popular tourist attraction for Springdale and the surrounding region. These beautiful mountains are great for enjoying outdoor recreation – visitors can come here for miles upon miles of hiking and great scenery, or enjoy the many lakes and rivers of the region by boating, canoeing, fishing and more.
If you’re visiting Springdale during baseball season you can catch a game between the local Northwest Arkansas Naturals and opponents at the Arvest Ballpark. Although this isn’t Major League, a game of baseball is still a fun way to spend an afternoon or evening and you can watch it in this newly constructed stadium.

Fayetteville is home to the University of Arkansas which features an attractive campus and historic buildings. Other attractions in the city include the Clinton House Museum.
