Northwest Arkansas Winter Bucket List

lake-fayetteville-winter-by- timpeartriceWe have a Northwest Arkansas Summer Bucket List but since temperatures are dropping, it’s time for a winter list to work on! If you’re looking for some fun this winter, try one of these activities and let us know how many of them you’ve crossed off this year. By this point, you’re probably ready for some time away from all the holiday rush, so take a break and reconnect with nature, even if it’s a bit chilly outside.

  1. Roast marshmallows and chestnuts on an open fire
  2. Do some small mouth bass fishing
  3. Go canoeing on the Buffalo
  4. Watch for bald eagles at Beaver Lake
  5. Enjoy a walk in the woods after some winter weather
  6. Go for a Polar Bear Plunge
  7. Wrap up and go star gazing and take advantage of the Geminids (tonight!) or the Ursids later in December
  8. Play broom hockey with brooms and a tennis ball in a field
  9. Go birding to spot winter birds and leave out some winter food
  10. Take in a waterfall when no one else is around after a winter rain

While we don’t get a whole lot of snow in Arkansas during the winter for traditional winter activities like skiing, making snowmen, and snowshoeing, we have wonderful winter weather that allows us to take advantage of what the Natural State has to offer. Last week’s snow and ice storm was messy but it was fun to enjoy the beautiful snowy sights!

When the weather is warmer, winter is the best time to go for a trip to the areas that are busiest during the summer. The Buffalo River, for instance, is a completely different experience in winter than in summer, when the river swells with partiers. There’s also plenty of great fishing and hiking to be had on winter days, even in the coldest of temperatures. It’s not the weather that’s the problem, it’s having the right gear!

We can help prepare you for any winter adventure so be sure to check in before heading out.
