Nestled near the calm waters of the Ouachita River in the Timberlands region of South Arkansas, El Dorado is undergoing a unique renaissance. Voted as having “America’s Best Downtown” in 2009, El Dorado has evolved from a humble oil town into an area rich in southern charm, history and some of the best Arkansas Festivals.
El Dorado is home to the Southern Food and Wine Festival, Fall’s award-winning MusicFest and the Mayhaw Festival in the Spring. and any more.
The city was the heart of the 1920s oil boom in the area. During World War II, it became a center of the chemical industry, which still plays a part in the economy, as do oil and timber.
We highly suggest taking time to head downtown for a great Southern experience and for their famous Spudnuts!
