Little Rock & Area Trip Planner
Welcome to Little Rock & Area!
Beginning as an outpost in 1814, Little Rock became the capital of Arkansas in 1836. The history of the state is captured at such attractions as the Old State House, which houses Civil War flags and exhibits of political developments, and the Central High Museum and Visitors Center, which documents a powerful story of the fight to stop racial segregation in public schools. For lighter activities, visitors may shop, dine or be entertained at the River Market in the downtown core. Appealing attractions for families include the Museum of Discovery and the Children's Museum. In close proximity to Little Rock is North Little Rock, home to one of the largest city parks in the nation, Burns Park. The William Clinton Presidential Library is a popular attraction and houses printed and audiovisual material related to the 42nd President of the United States. For families, Gator Park in Little Rock features mini golf, go-karts and more.
