I have been visiting Little Rock for years and they have been valiantly updating/invigorating the water front and downtown area. But it's still a work in progress. There's a handful of restaurants, a few shops and a nice waterfront walking area. There's a food court and farmers market. But for me just not much to keep me there. I try... More

This district has all kinds of shops and restaurants. Wish I had had more time to stroll and look. Parking is crazy. We parked in North Little Rock and rode the trolley over. You can get an all day pass for $2.00.

There are also some very nice Hotels in the River Market. The have a very nice Hampton Inn and Renaissance Hotel and if you want to really bask in old time luxury, a short walk... More

We stayed at a hotel very close to the river market district. We enjoyed walking down the streets and looking. There are some great restaurants tucked away and a little shopping(most of which was closed when we went through). Don't miss the icecream!

Best to find a parking spot somewhere and then walk along the area and see all the sights, some nice restaurants and historical places to visit. Lots of vendors at different times of the year to browse thru, sometimes entertainment is provided on certain weekends, a nice area to visit and take in the sights.

Was very impressed with this area. So many choices for casual or modern dining. It even has a rail car attempt. You can rent bikes, shop, eat all right downtown. Loved it, can wait to go back .

A shame that people toss dirty diapers like they are a stick. The area has free parking lots off the beaten path if you look. Lot of restaurants, none opened on Sunday for breakfast though so don't look. We ran into 6 others looking that morning.

The River Market district runs along President Clinton Street and can be considered to extend all the way to the Arkansas River. There are restaurants, bars with and without music and attractions. In the River Market, there are a number of food stands, including several ethnic places worth tasting. There is ample seating inside. There is a bike rental at... More

This was hyped up to be a wonderful place to eat and shop so I was very disappointed. There were a few little shops and eateries but nothing wonderful. Half of the eateries were closed. We also tried to buy 2 or 3 day passes for the trolley but they only had 1 day passes available and the trolley was... More
