The diamond mine is the only one in the United States of its kind. Another enjoyable place to make a day visit to is Hot Springs National Park for shopping, horse racing, sightseeing, and a visit to the thermal baths. Others might want to visit the Eagletown/Broken Bow area and the Native American Museum and Monuments.
