The amazing people with the Rogers, AR CVB paid for my entire trip; however, all opinions and recommendations are my own!
So here we are, finally getting around to Day 2 of my amazing weekend in Rogers, Arkansas! If you missed the first post, be sure to check it out here. Y’all, I really cannot tell you how much I loved this little town. Northwest Arkansas is gorgeous and fun in and of itself, but Rogers is such a great little treasure in the middle of it all!
The morning of the second day was rainy, so we went shopping at Pinnacle Hills Promenade for a little bit while the rain died down. This is such a great place, and sadly Little Rock really has nothing like it. There’s just so much all in the same place; Little Rock has a version of the Promenade, but it’s nothing like the one in Rogers. I could have spent all day there!
After our little shopping excursion we headed off to downtown Rogers to visit the Daisy Air Gun Museum.
To be totally honest I wasn’t sure how I would feel about this part of the weekend. Not that I have anything against BB guns, I just didn’t know what to expect since I don’t have a lot of experience in the gun world.
You guys. This museum is FANTASTIC, and Daisy has such a cool history. I think the thing that really got me was the level of the stories being told. It wasn’t just facts and figures and such, but really deeply personal stories from people all over the world. I left the museum feeling really and truly connected to the company, even though I think I have shot a BB gun twice in my life.
AND…I was the first person visiting the museum from my hometown! YAY LUBBOCK! 🙂
After the Daisy museum we walked across the street to Heirloom Food + Gifts for a fantastic lunch. We had a bunch of homemade spreads, cheeses, a cucumber salad that I fell totally in love with, lavender-vanilla bean cream soda (YES), and lemon curd that almost brought myself and Kyran to tears.
The food was just SO good you guys, and I was so impressed with the passion behind it all. Just listening to the food descriptions and inspiration made me really excited to create my own versions of the food we had!
The next stop was War Eagle Mill, which was really fun for me as well. I love being in places where really unique food is made; especially when it’s rich in history. All of their products are stone-ground using the power of the War Eagle River, and they’re all organic, natural and non-GMO as well.
We got to tour the mill and see how it all works, then were treated to pecan pie cobbler and ice cream upstairs. Y’all. I cannot tell you how incredible that cobbler was – I am STILL dreaming about it even now!
I have a final post coming soon about the rest of our 2nd day, details from the 3rd day, and a fantastic giveaway for you guys as well! I hope you’ll stay tuned – it won’t disappoint!
