What it's like to live in Little Rock, Arkansas:
Little Rock and Pulaski County’s rich pasts span from pioneer days in the 19th century to presidential elections at the close of the 20th century, covering significant eras in United States history. Such historic highlights make the area stand out as an important piece of the American culture.
Today, in Little Rock, the old and new mix well together. Stately antebellum structures and ornate Victorian buildings neighbor gleaming new glass-facade skyscrapers stretching up into the river city's skyline with scenic, natural surroundings providing the backdrop. Its warm, comfortable climate offers its residents plenty of outside time to visit its many agricultural events including large farmers markets and tours emphasizing green practices.
