Let’s go dig for diamonds at the Crater of Diamonds State Park in Arkansas. People have been digging for diamonds in this area for over 100 years. You can read all about it on their website. It looks like a lot of fun. http://www.craterofdiamondsstatepark.com/
It is approximately 300 miles to get there. We plan to leave Friday morning and take our time getting there. We’ll stay at the Queen of Diamonds Inn in Murfreesboro, AR. www.diamondsinn.com Rooms are $84 per night for two queen beds and breakfast is included. We can pair up in rooms to keep costs down.
We’ll dig on Saturday and depending on how our luck runs, will decide at that point if we want to stay at Queen of Diamonds Inn again for Saturday night, or head back home and stop at a different hotel along the way, or if we’re real energetic, ride all the way home.
I have wanted to go to Crater of Diamonds State Park for over a decade but the roads are curvy and my carsickness has always prevented me from going. Now that I ride, curvy is perfect. I hope others will join me in my quest for an Arkansas diamond!
