For many, the River Market district is the lifeblood of Little Rock's downtown scene. It is a place to do business, grab a marvelous meal, meet up with friends or catch some great Arkansas live music. No matter who you are, or what you’re after, the River Market district is sure to be a good time. 

The River Market also stands as the unofficial cultural center of Little Rock. On any given day you'll find international cuisine, skilled Arkansas artists practicing their crafts and Arkansas live music - be it a one-man band in the River Market pavilion, local and regional artists at a Jazz in the Park concert or a national act in the amphitheater. 

Also enjoy the Little Rock sculpture garden, one of the many museums in the district, catch the Farmer's Market or shop for clothing and more in nearby boutiques. The River Market is a short walk, or streetcar ride, from most downtown hotels, making it one of the best spots to eat, shop, play and stay in Little Rock!
