The state of Arkansas (pronounced Ar-kan-saw) is in the southern United States, just north of Louisiana. The capital and most populous city is Little Rock. Arkansas is popular with vacationers due to the stunning Ozarks and Ouachita Mountains and the historic Native American sites including the Trail of Tears. The lowland river delta and wilderness areas are popular for outdoor pursuits.
