Living in Arkansas

Stretching along the Arkansas River, Little Rock is truly a wonderful place to live, work and play. The city continues to be a vibrant and growing community that still retains a small town charm. As the capital of Arkansas, Little Rock remains the state’s major area for government, finances and health care. The city boasts a large number of excellent public, private and parochial schools as well as numerous parks, golf courses and outdoor activities. An impressive selection of restaurants caters to all tastes in cuisine. The city has continued to renovate and revitalize its downtown area, and this district has quickly become a popular spot for an evening out, whether that involves dining, shopping, live music, theatre or drinks with friends. In addition, the Museum of Discovery, the Little Rock Zoo and the local IMAX theatre offer excitement and education for both the young and the young at heart. In November 2004, Little Rock celebrated the opening of the Clinton Presidential Library. Visitors from around the world will enjoy this amazing facility and explore our city.   Little Rock sits among the gentle rolling hills of central Arkansas. Summers can be hot  at times while winter remains mild for the most part, with an occasional snow fall. Arkansas boasts all her beauty in spring and fall with endless flowers in the spring and vibrant colors in the fall. The weather during these seasons can truly be described as perfect.
