Around the City:
The Clinton Presidential Park Bridge
Located in downtown Little Rock, this pedestrian and cyclist bridge connects Little Rock to North Little Rock over the Arkansas river and is a staple of the Little Rock skyline.
Bill Clinton on the Bridge Project:
“The conversion of the historic railroad bridge into a pedestrian pathway will give Central Arkansas a distinctive landmark and will complete one of the best urban trail systems in the country. By connecting important destinations, including my Presidential Center, the bridge will also support revitalization efforts in downtown Little Rock.”
The center features a permanent collection of various works of art along with occasional special exhibitions. Other parts of the center include a research library and rooms for several art education classes for a variety of age groups.
Hands-on exhibits of science and technology to entertain people of all ages.
Outside the City:
Capture gorgeous views of the Arkansas Mountains, a perfect choice for hiking and spending outdoors no matter what the season is.

Food and Drinks:
Sophisticated, French-inspired American plates presented in a traditional, white-tablecloth setting.
Classy bistro providing refined seafood & meat dishes with wine & cocktails in a rustic-style space.
