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.

In between, you’ll find layers of history and heritage mixed with culture and contemporary style.
