National Travel and Tourism Week, May 6-12, is centered around “Travel Then and Now,” a theme set by the U.S. Travel Association, which offers a look at travel trends from the past 35 years.
A commemorative time capsule filled with objects representing past and present travel-related items will be buried at Curran Hall. We are inviting community input about the capsule contents on its social media.
Built in 1842, Curran Hall was saved from demolition in 1996, restored to its former glory, and in 2002 was dedicated as Little Rock’s first official visitor information center. The site is a fitting representation of travel and tourism’s past and present.
Little Rock has experienced positive growth in recent years. In addition to the city’s treasured historic landmarks, visitors are enjoying revitalized neighborhoods, entertainment districts, outdoor amenities, a presidential library, a national airport, a vibrant culinary scene and much more.
