Hot in Texas is it cooler in Arkansas?

Hi to all!
It is hot in Texas and my bride of 38 years is ready to travel to a cooler place, however she can stand only 6 hours of travel and she is DONE.
From Tyler the only cool I can find is Arkansas. Anyone have an ideal spot for a few days get away. My 5.9 is ready to pull up a hill or two.

I googled it an it shows 4.5 hours from Tyler to Little Rock. Hot Springs in on the way, but route 65 up the middle of the state is an awesome drive with lots of places to camp in the trees, so for 6 hours, you still have 1.5 hours you can drive North on 65 ..OR, it may not be too much cooler, but you probably know that SE and Central East Oklahoma and Western Arkansas is also very nice for trees and camping...that was a nice area for us until we move to Kerrville TX..looks like in Tyler you are seeing about 93 degrees for the hi, and the high in is 84, but notice a cold front is coming in!! YEA!!!

We have been near Conway, AR at Toad Suck Park for about a week. Today it was 94, right now at 78. Today at our home (Granbury, Tx) it shows to have been 99 and right now is 90. Conway is about 30 minutes past Little Rock. Toad Suck Park is a Corp of Engineers park and with a Passport America (National Parks, over 62 years old) the nightly fee is $10. The park is right on the Arkansas river and is a beautiful park with lots of green grass and tall trees for shade. We discovered this park several years ago and come back at least once a year. Next weeks forecast is: Sunday 86/67, Monday 79/60, Tuesday 77/55, Wednesday 81/60, Thursday 82/61 and Friday 82/58.

Texnet,
thanks, I'll save that off in my good places file. The nice thing about getting out too that I've noticed is that even if the day time high is close to what it is in Dallas/Fort Worth (or Tyler) it only hits that high for an hour or so, and doesnt linger there for hours, plus the lows are at least 6 degrees cooler if not more. Makes for a much more pleasant day.
