Located right on the banks of the Arkansas River, Little Rock has grown from a small settlement in the late 1700s to a major cultural and artistic hub of the southeast. Home to a bustling downtown, a smattering of great museums, and a rejuvenated tourist scene, there's never been a better time to take advantage of all that Little Rock has to offer. Little Rock vacation packages are the perfect way to plan everything for your next trip to the south.
Look for Little Rock hotels that are close to the downtown and River Market area, as these two zones are lively on the weekends and feature plenty of places for eating and drinking. The River Market features a massive farmer's market on Sundays, with great local offerings on Arkansas-grown produce and artisanal foods. Explore the Quapaw Quarter, a neighborhood filled with stately, Victorian-era houses. You'll also want to explore the Midtown neighborhoods of Hillcrest and The Heights, home to some of the most upscale restaurants and gorgeous architecture. Little Rock rental cars make the trip to Midtown much easier.
All-inclusive vacations to Little Rock are a great idea year-round, but the city really comes alive in October, when the Arkansas State Fair takes over the fairgrounds located just south of the city. It's a huge event and makes for a memorable outing. There's also Riverfest, which happens Memorial Day weekend in Riverfront Park, located downtown. An arts and cultural festival, it ends with a massive fireworks display, which is worth the trip alone.
