Nearby Attractions

The METRO Streetcar line runs directly past or close to some of central Arkansas’ most vibrant areas, including Little Rock’s River Market District and Creative Corridor and North Little Rock’s historic Argenta District. Along the way are favorite restaurants, hotels, brewpubs, cultural attractions, shops and even a presidential library. A $2 day pass is the perfect way to take in the downtown sights of central Arkansas’ “twin cities.”

Districts

In the heart of downtown Little Rock, the River Market District, by day, offers a market hall with an exciting mix of food vendors that will entice your senses and fit any culinary cravings. Shop for fresh fruits and veggies, visit several art galleries and souvenir stores, dine at a variety of restaurants, take a streetcar ride or stroll through the park, take in multiple works of public sculpture, experience several museums and attractions, or enjoy the incredible and relaxing view of the river. Looking for a night out on the town? Downtown is the best place to find live entertainment and local music. Offering entertainment from acoustic, techno, alternative, piano bars, rock, jazz, classical and country. If a lively, high-energy atmosphere is what you are looking for, the district’s bars, restaurants and pubs offer a night on the town you’ll never forget. President Clinton Avenue was designated one of “10 Great Streets for 2009” by the American Planning Association’s Great Places in America Program. – Description courtesy of rivermarket.info

Little Rock’s Creative Corridor is an area along Main Street where arts and culture anchor a vibrant, mixed-use place in the center of the city. The project is revitalizing Main Street one block at a time, using economic development stimulated by the arts rather than a traditional retail base. This unique, work-live environment was started with a 2011 Our Town grant from the National Endowment for the Arts. The plan, created by the University of Arkansas Community Design Center and Marlon Blackwell Architects, has received awards from the American Institute of Architects and The American Society of Landscape Architects. With funding by a grant from the Arkansas Natural Resources Commission and the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), all of the pedestrian and environmentally friendly streetscapes in the 100, 200, 300 and 500 blocks of Main Street contain low impact development features such as bioswales, porous pavers, rain gardens, and other biodiverse vegetation. Funding for a wide variety of art and lighting installations for the Corridor is provided by ArtPlace America and Educational Foundation of America. Explore the corridor’s design features on your way to restaurants, bars and perhaps a show at the Arkansas Repertory Theatre, Arkansas’ premier regional theater. – Description courtesy of creativecorridorlittlerock.Perch CMS (Perch CMS (WordPress)).com

Argenta, so named for a silver mine, is the historic name of North Little Rock.  Today, Argenta refers to the commercial and residential area of the city that from its earliest beginnings upon the banks of the Arkansas River.  It contains buildings from the late nineteenth century and early twentieth century, as well as newer buildings of compatible construction.  Today, it is a thriving community, containing businesses and families.  Restaurants, salons, studios, galleries, specialty shops, performance theaters, banks and more provide services and entertainment to local and regional residents and area visitors.  City services are located in the district, as are city parks, community gardens, churches and a bountiful farmers market.  The nearby Riverfront Park is flanked by Dickey Stephens Park, home to the Arkansas Travelers baseball team, and Verizon Area, which is host to major concerts and other large-scale events. – Description courtesy of argentadistrict.org
