Central Arkansas is, well, at the center of it all. Located in the very middle of Arkansas, it serves as the state’s tourism hub and political epicenter. It comes complete with commerce centers, world-class healthcare facilities and outdoor recreational opportunities. This part of the state has a bit of everything. Once here, you’ll want to stay awhile, so sit back and enjoy the ride — and, the view.

North of the Arkansas River is the city of North Little Rock. Little Rock’s neighbor has a fun downtown vibe in its Argenta Arts District. It is home to the Arkansas Inland Maritime Museum, the only museum in the intercontinental United States to have World War II bookends. The USS Hoga tugboat was instrumental at Pearl Harbor, and the USS Razorback submarine was present at the Tokyo Bay surrender. Step further back in time at the Old Mill, the Gone With the Wind opening scene backdrop. Standing on the river bank is Verizon Arena, home to concerts and sporting events.

Explore Downtown

Unique Neighborhoods:

People often refer to a city’s downtown as its heartbeat. Little Rock’s is certainly alive and well, and celebrating with much fanfare. This revitalized area has been one of the city’s crowning jewels. Situated on the Arkansas River banks, downtown Little Rock is anchored by a beautifully restored and renovated Robinson Center Performance Hall and the William Jefferson Clinton Presidential Center and Park. In between, you’ll find layers of history and heritage mixed with culture and contemporary style.

Explore Midtown

Located in the center of Little Rock, Midtown is a wonderful collection of old and new, and has earned every bit of its unique personality. This district is full of landmark restaurants, new cafes, popular wine bars and quirky coffee shops. The streets are lined with beautiful historic homes, quaint shops, and friendly folks nestled in several Little Rock neighborhoods. In the middle of it all, you’ll find shopping malls, retail centers, the Little Rock Zoo and War Memorial Park.

West Little Rock is a way of life with its majestic homes, upscale restaurants, numerous shopping venues and an IMAX theater. Further west along tree-lined roads sits the enchanting Wildwood Park for the Performing Arts. It’s a bit of hustle and bustle, with a touch of elegance and finesse.

It’s neighbor, the Outlets of Little Rock, is Arkansas’s first outlet mall and worth the spree.
