You don't have to go to Memphis for good barbecue; McClard's restaurant serves it up bountifully.
If you haven't already, visit the Arkansas Walk of Fame before leaving. Located next door to the visitors center, the walk honors Arkansans who've made important contributions to the state and abroad. Honorees include Gen. Douglas MacArthur and Dr. James Dobson, to name a couple. Looking at the names will make you wonder what's in that Hot Springs water after all.
