It's a beautiful area, but I was disappointed there was a lack of local or Arkansas artisan shops. I do not care for malls and same old, same old shopping. It is locally owned shops that draw me.

If you want to party in Little Rock, just go here and walk. You will find your kind of place. Piano bars, dance clubs, live shows. Something for everyone.

Had a business trip in Little Rock - stayed near the convention center. Met up with some local friends and spent time in the River Market District. Great shops and food spots. Was there during the week and during the day. I would imagine it would be really alive on the weekends - especially during nice weather.

Great shops and food all located on the water front. Just down the street from the Clinton Library. Food spots to highlight...Gusano's, Flying Fish, along with many other great locations. Family friendly but the night life is great too. Take a ride on the Trolley to get a great view of all downtown Little Rock, Arkansas. A hidden gem!

We went to check out the shops. There are lots of shops and vendors. The food is down home cooking style....not great but nonetheless good and filling. Took the trolley which was nice and only 2.00. The junction bridge is a must see. The trolley takes you to the Clinton library. Lots of people. Great shops. Great atmosphere!!!

We drove through the district, had lunch at Gus's Friend Chicken. Could not find a lot going on during mid week. But I bet in the summer time, this area is jumping with activity and people! Wanted to visit a micro brewery, but it looked closed. There were some little shops open through out the area. Parking was a problem... More

This area is a perfect example of the great work Little Rock has done as a city. The energy put into bringing in tourism is evident everywhere.

The River Market District and surroundings in the greater River Market area in downtown Little Rock defines probably the most vibrant, diverse entertainment and restaurant complex in Central Arkansas. The River Market offers a wide variety of resources such as its hotels, restaurants, bars, pubs, breweries, the Public Library, Children’s Museum, Amphitheater, Game & Fish Museum, farmer’s market, River Front...

There wasn't much going on that day. We ate lunch there. We shared a burger and fries then shared a cannoloni! Beautiful walk along the river.

We walked through the park and into the Market and around the streets and it was wonderful. Don't miss the Nature Center, and the walk through the marsh/weland.
