This is my favorite time of the year when the leaves start turning color and you want to venture outdoors to enjoy nature's scenery. There is nothing quiet like getting in the car and taking a little road trip to a nearby town. One of the cities you need to put on your list of places to go is Camden, Arkansas that's because The City of Camden presents "Movies on the River" Special Holiday Series at the Camden Riverwalk Amphitheater in November and December.
