Finding an Apartment for Rent in Little Rock, AR
Both the capital of Arkansas and its largest city, Little Rock is anything but little, stretching over more than 116 square miles with a population of more than 196,000 in the city itself, and close to three quarter million people in the greater metro area. In 2005, Forbes ranked Little Rock as the 22nd most business-friendly metro area in America, and as the second cleanest city in 2011. If you've never lived in the South, Little Rock may help to dispel many of the misconceptions that many Northerners have about Arkansas.
Little Rock is a big city, and that means that there are always apartments available. It also means that those apartments aren't always affordable. It may take some time and patience to find the perfect spot within your price range.
Top Neighborhoods in Little Rock, AR
We couldn't begin to list all of the best neighborhoods in Little Rock. It's a big place with a lot of great areas to live. That said, one of the safest would be Pleasant Valley, although it might not be in everyone's price range. Hillcrest is one of the older neighborhoods with plenty of beautiful architecture to take in and better pricing than Pleasant Valley. Riverdale is probably the most densely-packed with great apartments, and if you can find a studio or cozy one-room here you might find it quite affordable.
Cultural Attractions in Little Rock, AR
Where to begin? To take in all of the culture found in Little Rock would take multiple lifetimes. For your first day out and about in Little Rock, it may be wiser to set a specific goal. Are you more interested in the arts? Then you may want to check out the Arkansas Arts Center and enjoy some of the countless exhibits on permanent display and rotation. The museum is massive, though, so don't try to do it all in one day. If you're more of a history buff, you have the William J. Clinton Presidential Library in Downtown, and the MacArthur Museum of Arkansas Military History. The Museum of Discovery lets you get hands on with science and tech. There's never an excuse to be bored in Little Rock.
Dining in Little Rock, AR
Nobody cooks like the South. If you want some hearty burgers, try the "Hot Dog" cheeseburger at Arkansas Burger Co., which comes with bacon, grilled onion and cheese dip. For pizza, you have Layla's Gyros and Pizzeria, or Zaza Fine Salad and Wood Oven Pizza Co. on Kavanaugh Blvd. For great Asian style cooking, you've got Fantastic China, with its romantic atmosphere and modest pricing, or the Sashimi Japanese Steakhouse where you can grab some sushi, sake and steak. Whatever you're after, Little Rock has it. You can wander Downtown and step into any random restaurant, diner or cafe and probably have a pretty great lunch. Arkansas takes food seriously.
Transportation in Little Rock, AR
Little Rock's buses are provided by the Central Arkansas Transit Authority, and they run a total of 26 regular routes, with more for special events like festivals and so on. These buses are great when you need to get across town and don't have a set of wheels of your own, but if you plan on living in Little Rock for awhile, then you may want to consider investing in a vehicle. You can comfortably get by shopping in your own neighborhood for groceries, hanging out at the nearest coffee shop and so on, but now and then you're going to want to visit a friend across town without waiting an hour for the bus to get there.
Little Rock is one of the most beautiful and quintessentially American cities in the US. Dense, but not crowded. Busy, but not tiring. Cultured, but not stuffy. Little Rock is simply a great place to be if you love great people and great food.View Apartments in Little Rock, Arkansas
