LITTLE ROCK, ARKANSAS
Little Rock was named by French explorer Jean Baptist Bénard de La Harpe, who discovered two rocky outcroppings on the Arkansas River in 1722. The larger he called Le Rocher Francais (“The French Rock,” later called Big Rock) and the smaller he named La Petit Rocher (“The Little Rock”). The city was built near, and named after, the smaller of the outcroppings.
Little Rock is the capital of Arkansas. It was incorporated on November 7, 1831, on the south bank of the Arkansas River close to the geographic center of the state. The city derives its name from a rock formation along the river, named by the French in the 1720s. The capital was moved to Little Rock in 1821. The city is the largest in the state.
Little Rock is a cultural, economic, government and transportation center within Arkansas and the South. Several cultural institutions are in Little Rock, such as the Arts Center, the Repertory Theatre; the largest non-profit professional theatre company, and the Arkansas Symphony Orchestra. In addition, there is hiking, boating, and other outdoor recreational opportunities. Little Rock’s history is available through history museums, historic districts or neighborhoods and historic sites such as Little Rock Central High School.
Things to see:
William J. Clinton Presidential Library: The library is full of interesting bits of President Clinton’s life and time as a governor and as President. A must see for history and political buffs.
Little Rock Central High School: An opportunity to delve into the history behind the 1957 immigration “crisis” in Little Rock. An excellent museum cater-corner to Central High itself has displays and lots of video that cover the entire event. The Little Rock Nine and other events of the Civil Rights movement are memorialized. The Visitor Center was very informative. The school itself is amazing and the Education Center is the Mobile station.
Big Dam Bridge: Walk up the walkway to get to the top of the dam…interesting view at the top…you can see barges & recycling ships…Many flags on top. Watching the water flow is awesome. Great place to run, bike, and hike all the way to Little Rock. The trail leads down to the Clinton Library in the River Market; which is a gem in the city where you can eat in some of the best restaurants in the nation. The Pubs are great too after a long bike or hike from the Big Dam Bridge!
Pinnacle Mountain State Park: This park has tons of options for hiking, walking, running, biking, or floating. There are lots of trails and something for all levels of abilities.
Little Rock Zoo: You’ll be happy to see good-sized enclosures and friendly zookeepers. Some exhibits were the elephants, rhino and large cats. The primates are cool too. They do live feedings for primates and watch how the silverback gorilla acts during feeding time. They also have a baby chimp, which is so cute and fun to watch.
Zookeepers offer educational talks from which you can learn quite a bit about these amazing animals.
Little Rock’s River Market Area: Situated on the banks of the mighty Arkansas River, is a great place for visitors of all ages and persuasions. Outdoors, the River Walk offers a beautiful sculpture garden and varied art works along the beginning of a 17-mile hiking/biking/walking trail, plus historic markers and descriptions and children’s play areas and a fountain in summer.
How to get there: there are direct flights from Tampa to Little Rock, lots of choices for food and places to stay.
