Little Rock lies where the Ozarks, Ouachita Mountains, and the Mississippi Delta meet. The city is the capital of Arkansas, the largest city in the state, and home to over 700,000 people. It’s also an economic and cultural epicenter, with a rich history and plenty of museums, parks, live theater, and surrounding natural beauty. While you can get around Little Rock’s downtown by trolley or rental car, one of the easiest ways to see the sights in Little Rock is by charter bus… and Metropolitan Shuttle is here to help.
Lovers of culture and theater will find plenty to do in Little Rock, from the city’s historic districts such as the Quapaw Quarter, to theatrical institutions such as the Arkansas Repertory Theatre. There’s also plenty to enjoy in the area surrounding little rock: tourists come to enjoy the boating, hiking, and yearly festivals.
Pinnacle Mountain State Park
Only a mile from Little Rock you’ll find Pinnacle Mountain State Park, two thousand acres of natural habitat. The centerpiece of the park is Pinnacle Mountain itself, and is surrounded by a variety of hiking trails for bikers, hikers, backpackers, and other outdoorsy souls. Guests can catch a minibus rental from Little Rock and check out the Arkansas Arboretum, a 71-acre exhibit inside the park which showcases the state’s wealth of flora. Campground facilities are available at nearby Mamuelle Park, only four miles away.
Big Dam Bridge
According to legend, the pedestrian Big Dam Bridge was originally going to be called the Murray Bridge, since it would span the Arkansas River and Murray Lock and Dam. But concerns about funding of the $12.8 million bridge led a local judge to say “we’re going to build that dam bridge.” And so they did. The Big Dam Bridge opened in 2006 and has been used for cycling tours and races, as well as pedestrian traffic and sight-seeing, ever since. You can book a shuttle bus rental to take you as far as Little Rock to see the gorgeous and unique Big Dam Bridge… but it’s only open to bicycle and foot traffic.
Old State House Museum
The Old State House Museum is the oldest state capitol building west of the Mississippi, having been built in 1836. The State House has a long and somewhat colorful history — on this site in 1837, one representative of the Arkansas General Assembly killed another in a knife fight on the House floor. The State House was designated as a museum in 1947, and has shown collections on the Civil War, the First Ladies of Arkansas, and other special collections ever since. The Old State House is a cultural and historical institution and a great destination for a school bus rental to Little Rock.
River Market District
If you’re looking to find the heart of Little Rock, look no further than the River Market District. Here, you’ll find the Little Rock Farmer’s Market, Riverfront Park, regular live music, boutique shopping, and great food from a wide variety of vendors at the River Market’s Ottenheimer Market Hall. Visitors can enjoy authentic Thai cuisine, fresh-baked tea cakes and cookies, burgers, Indian food, and a variety of Middle Eastern and international dishes. The River Market District is nearby to the Arkansas River Trail, Junction Bridge, and other famous Little Rock landmarks — the perfect stop for a party bus rental in Little Rock.
