Default Arkansas Things To Do

We are staying on Lake Hamilton June 27th thru July 4th morning for my daughter's national softball tournament.
Looking for some things to do between there and Hot Springs in our down time. Or things to stay away from. Looking for any first hand advice.
Thanks,

Two weeks ago, I took my dad striper fishing on Lake Ouachita. Had a great time. Caught fish. Saw bald eagles. Beautiful lake.
I do NOT recommend eating at Angel's Italian Restaurant. Awful food. Creepy service.

Don’t eat at Texas Roadhouse in Hot Springs. I was there on Tuesday. Terrible!

Gulpha Gorge, right there in Hot springs. Neat place.

Lake Ouachita, the best lake around. Can't beat the scenery.

Float the Ouachita river.

For breakfast eat at the Pancake Shop on bath house row, there in Hot Springs. Normally a wait to get in, but worth it.

Check out the Mid America Science Museum, it’s actually pretty cool

I work in Hot Springs several times a month, the main drag through bathhouse row is a neat place. Keep in mind that between bathhouse row and Oaklawn changes from nice to the hood within a matter of blocks

Go on the boat tour. Go to some rock shops for cheap Arkansas wet stones.
