Finding the perfect location for a family holiday can be a stressful time, particularly when popular American destinations can become overcrowded at certain times of the year. Before traveling on any kind of holiday, it is important to ensure that you have the paperwork that you need such as a valid passport, an EHIC if you are traveling to Europe and a US Visa application if you are traveling to the US. This will need to be organized in well in advance to ensure you are able to travel freely when traveling to and from your chosen location.

Whitaker Point, Arkansas
Whitaker point in Arkansas is perfect for not only for couples but also photographers and those that love to hike. This stunning location has seen a number of proposals, marriages and has made for some amazing photos throughout its time. This location is one that is well worth a visit and is one of the lesser known hiking trails in the world. With a sheer drop to the forest below and stunning views located all around this perfectly placed rock, you can have the perfect trip with unique scenery in no time at all.
If you are lucky enough to hike to this location, the path can be difficult to tackle when faced with inclement weather. Not only will you lose the views, but you will also not be able to venture out onto the rock as it will be unsafe. Visiting in the summer months gives you the best of both worlds as you get amazing views and get to experience the rock in all its glory. However, we advise you to take the trip in the early morning as crowds can build during the late morning and into the afternoon. We also advise that you bring bottled water and a snack as you may find yourself taking much longer due to the breath-taking views.
