Arkansas
By Kiley Gottschalk

A true gem of the south, state capital Little Rock, Arkansas holds surprisingly abundant convenience and appeal of a modern city with effortless access to natural beauty only minutes away.  WhatsCheaper.com recommends this environmentally conscious, progressively developing city for visitors of all ages. With an abundance of entertainment opportunities, outdoor activities, and shopping and dining that rival that of other big cities of the south, let WhatsCheaper.com help you make Little Rock, Arkansas your next travel destination.

Located centrally at the intersection of the Arkansas River Valley, the Ozark and Ouachita Mountains, and the Arkansas Delta, Little Rock is the true hub of the state, providing boundless commodities for both locals and tourists alike. The Little Rock National Airport (LIT) is a short 10-minute drive from downtown. WhatsCheaper.com can help you book your flight by following this link (http://www.whatscheaper.com/flight.php).

Once in the city, public buses and a downtown trolley exist-though WhatsCheaper.com recommends arranging for personal transport, as public transportation is not always easily accessible. Lodging, however, can be found without difficulty.  Many accommodation options exist within walking distance of some of Little Rock’s most popular areas for entertainment and sightseeing. WhatsCheaper.com is here to help book your Little Rock hotel experience. Just click this link (http://www.whatscheaper.com/hotel.php) to get started.

WhatsCheaper.com recommends a number of notable attractions and sightseeing opportunities during your stay in Little Rock. The President William J. Clinton Library attracts visitors from all over the world year-round. An outstanding architectural feat, the Clinton Library hosts year-round events, traveling displays, and seminars open to the public, all for reasonable (if not free) admission rates. The library is located in Little Rock’s gentrified River Market District; which boasts countless shops, restaurants, bars and live music, as well as a sprawling farmers market that assembles on Tuesdays and Saturdays. WhatsCheaper.com also recommends paying a visit to the Heifer International headquarters while in the area.  Housing the command center for the distinguished nonprofit, the newly constructed Heifer building offers stunning displays, educational opportunities, and a fantastic gift shop celebrating the organizations growth over the years. A bit off the beaten path, but still near the city’s core, the Little Rock Arts Center brings in world-class pieces to enhance its already impressive collection on a year-round basis, making it a hot spot for both art connoisseurs and novices alike.

Though Little Rock is generally a family-friendly city in all regards, WhatsCheaper.com recommends the Little Rock Zoo to families traveling with young children. Additionally, the Museum of Discovery (an interactive natural history and science museum in the River Market district) has consistently been revered as a crowd-pleaser for both parents and children alike. 

Typical weather for Little Rock is warm and sunny, with an average annual temperature of 61 degrees. This sort of climate encourages outdoor activities and day trips and Little Rock offers a multitude of opportunities in this regard. WhatsCheaper.com suggests a laid-back stroll across Little Rock’s “Big Dam Bridge.”  Known for being the world’s longest foot/bike bridge over water, the Big Dam Bridge is built atop a dam that intercepts the Arkansas River and provides not only great exercise, but a fun and educational activity for outdoors appreciators of all ages. To cross the bridge and back could take under an hour, so WhatsCheaper.com proposes a challenge for Little Rock’s more athletic visitors. Minutes outside of town lays Pinnacle Mountain-one of the highest peaks in Arkansas.  A trek to the top of Pinnacle will provide spectacular views of the Arkansas River Valley from a 1000-foot high view.  A bit further out of town, a float-trip down the Buffalo or White River can provide a slow afternoon of environmental appreciation and relaxation. If you’re ready to leave the city, WhatsCheaper.com recommends one of the areas many camp sites, which are easily accessible, very affordable, and typically offer equipment rental to make your visit simpler.
