Spring is just around the corner here in Little Rock, and fortunately it's been a pretty mild winter. I'm already planning a few fun family outings for when the weather gets just a tad bit warmer. These are my top five favorite destinations to take the family in Little Rock:
Little Rock Zoo. Kids love animals. Grown-ups love animals, too. An afternoon trip to the zoo is equally entertaining for everyone. Check out lions and tigers and bears, oh my! Also stop by the elephant barn...
Imagine coming home after a long day and soaking your worries away in your own private Hot Tub. Little Rock is really an ideal climate in which to own one; it gets cold enough in the winter to necessitate having one, but not so cold that you'll freeze when you get out and head for the door.
But as awesome as owning a hot tub sounds, I've always worried that it might become a sore thumb in my otherwise well-manicured yard. Hot tubs are pretty big, bulky objects and will...
Thanks to Little Rock's warm and humid Southern climate, snow is rarely in the forecast. Still, those winter nights when the mercury dips below freezing can make us want to bundle up at home by the fire. But that's no excuse to be anti-social! We've been staying in, but we’ll invite our friends to join us. Until the weather warms up, we plan on hosting a few get-togethers.
With the Super Bowl coming up, it's a no-brainer to invite friends over to...
If you’re anything like us, you’re dreaming of that time of year when the temperature rises and green starts to show up all around—spring! When the dogwoods start to bloom, we know it's here to stay. Until we can spend some quality time outdoors, we're dreaming of ways to redo our patio and yard.
It's time to upgrade my cheap, worn out plastic furniture to something a little more chic and durable. I love the look of wicker —...
When it's cold out, most of us prefer indoor activities. This makes winter the perfect time to check out exhibits in Little Rock's museums. Here's what's on view right now that we plan to visit:
Museum of Discovery
The Museum of Discovery, located in the River Market area of downtown, is an awesome place to take the kids...or to indulge the kid within. The current feature exhibit, on display until April 7, is titled "Dinosaur Discoveries: Ancient Fossils, New...
Arkansans are all about the outdoors. The wintertime can put a bit of a cramp in those plans for fun outdoors, but there are a few occasions worth bundling up for and bracing against the cold. One of those events is the annual outdoor festival called LANTERNS!, which will be held on February 2-4 at Wildwood. This marks the fourth year of the festival, and we are so excited to attend this enchanting, internationally themed event, and we think you will be too.
The festival celebrates the...
During the summer, we're always on the look out for the best outdoor spot to have a drink and eat some great food. Right now? We just want to find somewhere cozy to enjoy a warming winter meal. We've put in the hard work and tracked down the best places in Little Rock to do just that:
If you are in your 20s or 30s, this is THE hip place to see and be seen. Of course, you don't have to be that young or hip to enjoy a cocktail in this cute bar/restaurant, located...
