There are hidden gems all across this country, but what are the top best kept secrets in Texas and Arkansas?

Much like hole-in-the-wall restaurants every town, city, state and country has those hidden gems. The places that you just have to see before you leave. The places that make a name for themselves among locals and tourists. With summer vacation kicking off soon, how fun would it be to see all of these places?

Enter Good Housekeeping.

The publication put together a list of the “50 Most Underrated Attractions in Every State.” Foregoing any boring categories, Good Housekeeping pitted every kind of attraction against one another. You’ll see drive-ins, nature trails, gardens and more on this list. So, we have to ask the question, where do you go in the states of Texas and Arkansas.

Strap on your hiking shoes, because Arkansas’ most underrated attraction is Whitaker Point. It’s quite a road trip north to reach this place, but it will be well worth it. The views are absolutely breathtaking. I’m already trying to think of ways to convince my husband to check this place out. I mean, it looks incredibly romantci.

Kick back and relax in Texas with the Stars and Stripes Drive-In Theatre. It’s not often you find an operational drive-in theater so when you do, you have to check it out. Plus, there are two locations in Texas, Lubbock and New Braunfels. I just want to go to see the dancing concession stand items remind you to toss your trash with a catchy song.
