Mena, rich in history, beauty, and adventure, vacationers are promised much more than a vacation...it's an experience.

Queen Wilhelmina State Park

The crown jewel of Mena's attractions lies 13 miles northwest of town along the Talimena Scenic Drive.  "The Castle in the Clouds" attracts thousands each year.  Its views are spectacular, and, true to its name, makes guests feel like visiting royalty.  The "Queen" hosts popular events such as the Rod Run and Mountain Fest.

Mena Depot

The depot serves a the focal point and most recognizable building of Mena.  Built in 1920, the beautifully restored train depot greets visitors as they travel Hwy 71.  It now houses the Chamber of Commerce and a travel agency.  Take a tour of the historical museum, see the art exhibit or take a picture next to the 1939 Dodge police car.
