Shopping, dining, hotels, the Presidential Library - the River Market District is the place to be in Little Rock! I stayed for a long weekend, shopping at some of the artsy boutiques, grabbing pastries and coffee for breakfast at a nearby bakery, and walking in Riverfront Park. Easily seeable on foot.

This is a great area. There are things for kids to do and night life for the adults. There are a lot of good places to eat.

Our guests loved the restaurants in the River Market District, especially The Flying Fish. They also loved the shops and purchased some nice things to take home!

Admittedly, my most favorite spot inside River Market is Big on Tokyo...delicious food and BUBBLE DRINKS!!!!! Seriously, a bubble drink on a hot Arkansas day hits THE spot!!! Have also had a panini at Rivershore Eatery and a chicken gyro from the middle eastern vendor.....all delicious! Highly recommended! Parking can be tricky in the middle of lunch, but I had... More

We went to the River Market District. I was really hoping there would be more shops/things to do. It was alright. we walked around and maybe found one shop to go into. I think they could add more shops here. Would not go back.

My girlfriends and I take weekend trips to Little Rock a couple times a year. We always stay in this area. It's within walking distance to the arena and has lots of neat resturants and bars.

Looks like a lot of places advertised for shopping etc aren't in business or were closed on a weekend! Can't imagine why they would be, disappointed they were.

We were here 3 times over the weekend and at different times. Never were all the restaurants open at the same time. The only good thing about this place is that it was cool.

I lived in the heart of the River Market District. At first glance, I thought it would be a very suitable environment comparable to my experience in much larger cities. Unfortunately, the River Market District falls miles short of my lowest expectations. It is a collection of mediocre restaurants and overpriced mom and pop operations that have absolutely no appeal... More

Take the trolley; walk to the river; go over the river on the pedestrian bridge; listen to good music; attend an outdoor concert; enjoy great restaurants; see a local performing arts production. Feel safe walking around in this area. Walk to the Clinton Presidential Library. There is even a local police station in the middle of the district.
