Arts & Culture
Little Rock has a thriving arts and culture scene. Experience the beauty of the Museum of Fine Arts, the sounds of the Arkansas Symphony Orchestra, the very best of Broadway, the grace of Ballet Arkansas and much more.
While Little Rock's eight neighborhoods make up the region's anchor and the largest city in population, it's one of nine cities that combine to create the metro. The other eight - Benton, Bryant, Conway, Jacksonville, Maumelle, Sherwood, Cabot and North Little Rock - are all unique with their own special lures.
Little Rock has 52 parks with more than 5,000 acres, while North Little Rock boasts 12, including the 1,700-acre Burns Park, one of the largest municipal parks in the nation. There are also many state and national parks within a 60-mile radius of Little Rock that provide recreation and camping facilities.
Whether your family is looking for the private school experience, a large public high school with great sports teams or technical training, Metro Little Rock has no shortage of options for K-12 education.
Fair and Festivals
Arkansas isn't complete without its lineup of family-friendly festivals and fairs! Take a spin on a carnival ride, indulge in the food truck scene or rub shoulders with renowned filmmaking professionals.
