Ride the River Rail Trolley
Many vibrant destinations in Little Rock and North Little Rock are linked by the 2.5-mile River Rail Electric Streetcar line. Hop on one of the replica vintage trolleys and travel from one of a number of hotels along the route to a concert at the 18,000-seat Alltel Arena or an event at the 220,000-square-foot Statehouse Convention Center. The line will also take you to fascinating shops and art galleries as well as restaurants and nightspots in both the River Market and the historic Argenta neighborhood. From the trolley line you can easily walk to destinations like Dickey-Stephens Park, where you can catch a minor league baseball game.
Riders can also glimpse some amazing views of the Arkansas River and Little Rock skyline from the streetcars as they cross the Arkansas River on the Main Street Bridge. Points of interest along the route include the Historic Arkansas Museum, the Museum of Discovery, the Witt Stephens Jr. Central Arkansas Nature Center and the main branch of the Central Arkansas Library System, as well as Robinson Center Music Hall, Riverfest Amphitheater, Heifer International's Headquarters and the Clinton Presidential Center.
