Small-town charm in Little Rock

It may be the Arkansas state capital, but Little Rock has all the charms of a small town. You'll find yourself immersed in a city of leafy neighborhoods, trendy bars and friendly locals. With spacious living areas and your own set of keys, Little Rock vacation rentals promise a local experience in this slice of Arkansas. Venture further afield and you'll quickly find out why Arkansas is known as the Natural State. Gear up for a cornucopia of glassy lakes, state parks and lush wetlands.

Things to do

Comb through Little Rock's presidential archives

For a taste of history, head to the William J Clinton Presidential Center. With over 80 million documents and 2 million photographs, it's America's most impressive archival collection. Little Rock Central High School is another living slice of history. Today, a national museum documents the legacy of the Little Rock 9 incident, which saw a group of African-American students denied entry into the local high school. With so much to see and do, it makes sense to stay local, with Little Rock vacation rentals just steps from the city's top attractions.

Activities

Neighborhood hopping in Little Rock

Little Rock is a city of neighborhoods, and finding your niche is all part of the fun. It's hard to resist the upbeat vibe of the River Market district. It's strewn with independent boutiques, art studios and farm-to-table restaurants. On a sunny day, stock up on treats from the Ottenheimer Market Hall and enjoy a picnic down at Riverfront Park. Canary-yellow streetcars cruise the downtown district and are a great option for family-friendly sightseeing. You can check out local theaters on the Main Street Creative Corridor, admire Antebellum homes in the Quapaw Quarter and browse vintage markets in SoMa.

Weather

Fiery foliage in Little Rock

Summers in Arkansas can get hot and humid, which means most travelers prefer to visit in the spring or fall. Temperatures hover around the 70s, which makes these seasons ideal for neighborhood hopping or exploring the Arkansas countryside. May treats visitors to gorgeous wildflowers, while October sees the city explode in a sea of reds, yellows and golds. Little Rock often receives a dusting of snow in the winter, though a host of indoor attractions make it a great time to enjoy a city break.
