About Little Rock

It’s no accident that Arkansas is called “The Natural State.” Living in Little Rock, we are surrounded by natural beauty at every turn and enjoy a four-season climate.  We have something for everyone from waterfalls and caverns to mountain trails and scenic drives as well as lakes and fall foliage that will take your breath away.

 

 

We also have fascinating historical sites and spectacular golf courses. And did we mention that Arkansas has a wine country, the only public diamond mine in the world, thoroughbred horse racing and one of the longest pedestrian bridges in the world? We know how to throw a party, with festivals and activities hosted during the year throughout our state.

Whether you like beautiful scenery, museums and cultural events, parks, sporting events,  gourmet dining or the night life, Little Rock has it all.  You can forget about the traffic congestion and long commutes that interfere with the quality of life in many cities.  Also, Little Rock offers affordable housing in lovely neighborhoods and low cost of living.

 Arkansas was recently named by the Brookings Institution as one of the Nation’s 20 Strongest Metropolitan Economies. Our housing market and unemployment rates ranked seventh out of the 100 metropolitan areas surveyed.

Although we believe it’s one of the best kept secrets in the country, we like to have the chance to tell prospective residents more about why we believe we have the best opportunities.
