Little Rock, Arkansas

We only had two nights in Little Rock, so today we headed into downtown Little Rock. We weren’t sure what we were going to do, but we knew the Clinton Library was in the area along with a couple of good restaurants/breweries. We started at the Farmer’s Market and then walked down William Clinton Boulevard. We decided to check out the Library. It was reasonably interesting. You’ve probably seen this photo a million times – “the bridge to the future.” It is right next to this old railroad bridge which does make an interesting contrast.

There were a lot of things that Clinton had received as gifts including a Trek bike and jersey from Lance Armstrong from the 99 Tour de France.

We walked back along the Trail of Sculptures. This is the first sculpture and the only one worth bothering to stop for a picture.

We were looking for the “rock” that contributed to the “Little Rock” name but this is all we found. This is one thing that the city could work on to improve it’s image. The whole downtown was pretty nice – good restaurants and some interesting shops.

The KOA Kampground here is packed solid. They said they had to turn away people who were driving up from Louisiana and other potential targets of Hurrican Gustav. We’ll be heading off to Murfreesboro from here and then home!
