Helena is a little town with big history.

From our Civil War history to our lush, kudzu-covered hills, Helena is like nowhere else. 

Helena makes a perfect getaway for those who are seeking the authentic Arkansas Delta experience. A rich mix of the old and the new, this town along the river allows you to relive history while enjoying some of the best soul food and blues music the Delta has to offer. 

Not to mention we're only hours from other popular Southern destinations: Little Rock, AR; Memphis, TN; and Oxford, Clarksdale, and Jackson, MS are all just a short drive away from Helena.

Life here moves at the speed of the river's current. Slow down, breathe the fresh air, and feel the rhythm of Delta life.
