No trip to the Greater Little Rock area would be complete without indulging in Southern favorites like sweet tea, fried food, dishes made with fresh, local ingredients, and some of the best barbecue you’ll find anywhere.
After dark, comedy clubs, dance floors and lounges come to life across the area’s happening night scene. Several hideaways are perfect for a glass of wine and conversation, while other city hot spots are the places to see and be seen. And if you’re looking for live music, you’ve come to the right city. You’ll find everything from smooth jazz to crowded rock ‘n’ roll concerts at venues of varying capacities.
Hot shopping spots are varied and plentiful in the Greater Little Rock area. Big-name stores and hip new retail destinations populate the expanding west side, while Midtown offers two malls – one indoor, one outdoor – right across the street from each other. And don’t miss downtown’s numerous museum stores, shops and plethora of eclectic boutiques nestled in The Heights and Hillcrest, two of the city’s oldest neighborhoods.
