Quick Facts


River Market - Home to a variety of festivals and concerts, this park is the center of activity in Little Rock. Here you can see the actual "little rock" that inspired European-explorer Benard de la Harpe to name the city. Children can enjoy the playground, while adults check out the history pavilion, which offers background on the park and the city. Bands often perform at the amphitheater.

The Museum of Discovery - At this museum, "hands on" is the rule. Children and adults are encouraged to participate in the exhibits and displays, and have fun learning about science, technology, nature and history along the way. Some of the interactive exhibits include the Health Hall, where you can learn about parts of the body; Worlds of the Forest, which includes an insect zoo; and the Tech Lab, which lets you build your own robot.
