Did you know that the only place in the world where you can go in and dig for diamonds is right here in the U.S. of A? Yep!

Crater of Diamonds State Park in Murfreesboro, Arkansas is a great place to spend the day or weekend. The park has the “finders keepers” policy, so whatever treasure you find, you keep! The day before we arrived someone had found a $3,000 diamond.

Shovels, buckets and other supplies can be rented at the park for a nominal fee.

For more information you can visit their website at: http://www.craterofdiamondsstatepark.com/

Oh… and if you visit after a rain storm… make sure you take your boots! And, if you find yourself there during a rain shower… don’t be surprised at how many people continue to dig, as rain helps your search! 😉
