The style of downtown Little Rock
When it comes to Little Rock, it's all happening downtown. It is well and truly the heart of the city, rewarding curious travellers with a mix of intriguing historical sites, museums, shops and parks. It also marks the beginning of the Arkansas River Trail – a loop running through many city and state points of interest.
Get in the spirit of Little Rock's laid back sophistication with a stay in one of downtown's upmarket hotels. The Little Rock Marriott provides a 4-star stay in the River Market district. Along with comfortable rooms, the hotel offers a restaurant, lounge and Cigar Bar. It is also conveniently positioned minutes from the Museum of Discovery and the Quapaw Quarter.
Just across the Arkansas River, North Little Rock is developing into a chic urban centre to rival that of the downtown area. Burns Park beckons with hiking and cycling trails, two golf courses and sporting fields aplenty. The Old Mill, as seen in Gone with the Wind, is worth checking out, and the Argenta Historic District stands as a testament to Arkansas history.
When it comes to planning your stay in North Little Rock, you may want to consider the charm of a B&B such as the Baker House Bed & Breakfast. Proudly perched in the heart of the historic district, this Victorian manor provides guests with traditional hospitality at fantastic mid-range prices.
