Life in Little Rock

With a population of over 200,000 people, Little Rock manages to bring a small town feel to the largest city in Arkansas. History, culture, nature, diversity, and art all lay at your fingertips, yet it’s not so large that you lose your sense of community. Little Rock has been named the Greatest Place to Live, one of Outside Magazine’s Best Towns and a Secret Foodie City.
