Little Rock is the state’s political, financial, commercial, and cultural center. The moderate cost of living (Ranked 6th in our country comparing the cost of living to salary) here allows a comfortable lifestyle, including city services, schools and parks including the Little Rock Zoo, that enhance life.

The Arkansas Arts Center is a regional favorite offering traveling exhibits, a valuable permanent collection, children’s theatre, and classroom instruction for children and adults. Go to the nearby Museum of Science and Natural History and see an exhibit of the Arkansaurus, a dinosaur unique to our area.

Here you’ll also find a wealth of performing arts from the Arkansas Repertory Theater, the Arkansas Opera Theater, Ballet Arkansas, and the Arkansas Symphony Orchestra. Artspree, a festival sponsored by the University of Arkansas at Little Rock, brings nationally renowned performers to the city. Many Broadway touring companies and concert performers include Arkansas on their tour schedules.

When you’ve had enough of the urban scene, you’ll be only minutes from the country. Hiking, boating, fishing, camping. Arkansas is a natural for these and other outdoor pursuits. From the Ozark Mountains to the Mississippi Delta, Arkansas has breathtaking scenery at every turn.
