Where can you visit a real submarine, ride a trolley car, catch an outdoor concert and shop the world? In downtown Little Rock’s River Market district! Take your pick of lunch choices inside the River Market that anchors a busy downtown. Shop the farmers’ market. Or explore several shopping and entertainment choices.
Ample parking is available near the River Market that allows you to explore by foot, trolley, boat or submarine. World War II era USS Razorback is named for a whale, not the hog, but Arkansas has adopted the stationary sub as part of a maritime museum along the Arkansas River.
This warehouse district revitalized in the 90s now includes a large library, art centers and world headquarters for charity Heifer International. Fair trade shopping downtown includes an eclectic boutique by Ten Thousand Villages.
On our walk through downtown we couldn’t resist a photo of this adorable market mascot — seems pretty tame for a razorback.
