North Little Rock is located in central Arkansas at the intersection of two major interstate arteries, I-30 and I-40. It is closely linked to Little Rock's downtown area by the River Rail Trolley and a series of bridges that include pedestrian and biking trails, offering easy access to all the capitol city's points of interest, including the Clinton Presidential Library, Heifer International and the Arkansas State Capitol. The Clinton National Airport provides non-stop jet service to 13 national/international gateway cities.
North Little Rock is a first-class urban playground for people of all ages. The historic downtown Argenta Arts District features unique shopping, dining and entertainment venues. Downtown is adjacent to the Arkansas River Trail, a 17-mile pedestrian and biking loop that runs along both sides of the Arkansas River and includes the Big Dam Bridge. Also featured in this riverfront district is a portion of the Trail of Tears and the WWII USS Razorback submarine.
Just to the northeast of the downtown area is a vast shopping district with national retailers and unique boutiques. Also located in this area is the Old Mill, which appeared in the opening scenes of "Gone With The Wind."
North Little Rock's location at the intersection of I-30 and I-40 places it directly on routes to destinations such as Branson, Tunica, Memphis, St. Louis, Dallas and Northwest Arkansas. The recently opened "Crystal Bridges Museum" in Bentonville, Arkansas, attracts visitors from around the world to view a vast collection of art masterpieces, and North Little Rock is a quick 3.5 hour drive from this amazing attraction.

One of the country's most beautiful and famous caves, Blanchard Springs Caverns, is also in this area near Mountain View, AR. To the southeast of North Little Rock is the Delta Region, where the Arkansas River flows into the Mississippi River, and a rich cultural heritage of agriculture and blues music culture abounds.
