The River Market District is a great place to visit for a long weekend. There are tons of historic places to visit, endless shopping, and sightseeing a galore! Our favorite place was Riverfront Park. There was so much to see and do. It's a great place for cyclists, history buffs, and even young kids/families. The River Market District and Downtown... More

During my stay in Arkansas, I was a frequent visitor to the River Market in Little Rock. It's a very nice area with an immaculate view of the river and local venues. The shops and restaurants are close together and you can walk anywhere you need to go. I like to refer to the River Market as a "little, big... More

Took the free shuttle from the Clinton Library to the Clinton Museum Store, which took 1 minute or less. The District is very pleasant looking and a great place to walk, shop or grab a bite to eat. Seventeen miles of walking trails run along the Arkansas River...appear to be well maintained and used heavily. The highlight for me was... More

I could see this area being great during a festival, you know when there is something going on...but we were there on a weekday afternoon, and while the area is very nice...it seems to mainly be a group of bar/restaurants...kind-a like a college town feeling. We were here about five years ago and the River Market itself is not as... More

We felt like the River Market area was nice, but a bit overrated. Is fine as a restaurant area, but that's about all it is. Needs more shopping.

EXTREMELY difficult parking circumstances! The River Market in Little Rock is delightful and full of wonderful, unique surprises. With the addition of the Arcade, the experience is nonpareil! Ten Thousand Villages, The Freckled Frog, The Ron Robinson Theater venue, the Main Library, The Arkansas Studies Institute….THIS time, the re-development of the River Market area is going to soar…..the only caveat...

I am amazed each time I stroll through the River Market district, it has come a long way in the last 20 years. It has something for everyone, farmers market, a wide variety of eating places with great food, plenty of entertainment, and fantastic educational venues with Stephens Nature Center, Clinton Library and Heifer International, and Museum of Discovery, just...
