Little Rock Central High School National Historic Site was the site of struggles over school desegregation in 1957. Nine African-American teenagers were entering their first day of school at a time when desegregation of the schools was just beginning. That day went down in the history of the Civil Rights movement as being a pivotal event. The U.S. Army's 101st Airborne Division was brought to Little Rock to escort the nine students into the school on the next day. Little Rock Central High is still an active school, and the only way to tour this historic site is by reserving a ranger-led tour ahead of time.

This natty little building presents a homage to the humble (and not so humble) handbag. Through a clever decade-by-decade review of the 20th-century American woman’s bags, and their contents, the permanent exhibition here tells you much more about social change than about fashion. Focusing on the period between 1900 and 1999, the exhibits tell the tale of a new freedom for the American woman as she was able to leave the confines of the home and encounter big changes, gaining the right to vote, living through the austerity of the Great Depression, getting energized by Dior’s post-war New Look, and entering the office workforce. The museum also hosts regular temporary exhibitions. Tue-Sun 11am-4pm, closed Mon

BILLY BASS ADOPTION CENTER - Inside the Flying Fish. The Billy Bass animatronic fish gimmick may have faded into relative obscurity after taking the world by storm in the 1990s – making its founder extremely rich in the process – but those who retain an affection for the kitsch singing prop will be pleased to learn of the Flying Fish restaurant in Little Rock. Here, hundreds of the once ubiquitous novelty items can be found tacked to a wall or ceiling as a quirky tribute to the latex curio, which belts out classic tunes including Bobby McFerrin’s “Don’t Worry Be Happy” and Al Green’s “Take Me to the River.” Often, diners visiting the restaurant donate another to the collection, which has now topped an impressive 300. But fear not, the owners take the batteries out, leaving you to enjoy your Cajun grub in peace. Sun-Thurs 11am-10pm, Fri & Sat until 11pm

314 MAPLE ST NORTH LITTLE ROCK, ARKANSAS PRICE: $ | TYPE: BREWERY The spacious taproom harbors a mixture of wood and industrial elements that ultimately make Flyway feel like an incredibly comfortable, yet funky, modern hangout. The theme is an ode to the brewery’s name. McMullen says, “Our name comes from the bird migration route … that starts in the corner of Canada and comes down right through the Mississippi.” Scanning the room you’ll notice round, green tables amidst picnic-style wooden options as well as metal high tops. The various metal elements were meant to bring the brewery into the taproom, and the colors were chosen with a specific purpose in mind. McMullen says, “If you were cruising down the Mississippi in a boat … we wanted to incorporate those colors, with the Earth tones in the floor, we’ve got a winter blue sky in the ceiling,” he explains, “and these tables are actually green because these are our trees … and the chairs are the roots. We want the people to sit down and get rooted.” Already, the team has three of their four core beers on draft, including – Migrate Pale Ale, Free Range Brown Ale, Shadow Hands Stout – and hope to add the Early Bird IPA soon. The Migrate is a fruity, hoppy brew that manages to be extremely drinkable. The Free Range Brown is an approachable dark beer with notes of roasted caramel malts, coffee, and a hint of chocolate. Shadow Hands has a dry finish with more hops than your average stout. Foster says, “We were trying for the flavor, and trying to avoid bitterness – that’s what we’re doing with a lot of our beers.” Don’t miss the Early Bird IPA, which features Centennial Hops. Foster says, “We want it to be one of our best.” The brewery will offer feathers, their take on beer flights. McMullen’s dad created forty handmade wooden feathers. “No two are the same,” says Foster, as he describes the incredible amount of work his and McMullen’s family put in to help make the brewery a reality. For food, check out their handmade pretzels, creative nachos, sliders, and their wild game sausages. Also stop by in the morning on the weekends for a rotating brunch menu.

923 W 7TH ST LITTLE ROCK, AR PRICE: $ | TYPE: BREWERY One of the first in Little Rock’s brewing scene, Vino’s knows what a beautiful combination pizza and beer is. If you want handcrafted ales with your pizza or calzone, head to this restaurant on 7th Street. While you’re there, you’re likely to catch a quirky art or music show in the backroom. Vino’s mainstays include, among others: The Firehouse Pale Ale is a medium-bodied amber ale, more suited for the beer enthusiast who wants that slight fruit taste accompanying their hops. Try the 6 Bridges Cream Ale if you want something that is golden and light-bodied with the tiniest hop aroma. The Lazyboy Stout is a great dark beer without that bitter aftertaste. The chocolate flavor is not overwhelming, making this a velvety, medium-bodied brew. Vino’s is open Sunday – Thursday from 11 am to 11 pm, and Friday and Saturday from 11 am to midnight. Growler sales are offered at the brewery, as well.

Petit Jean State Park is an Arkansas classic, a natural and historic treasure that has welcomed travelers for decades. The natural beauty and ancient geology of the legendary Petit Jean Mountain inspired the creation of Arkansas’s first state park and with it our state park system. The park mirrors the mountain’s rugged beauty with its rustic-style, native log and stone facilities constructed by the Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) beginning in 1933. The CCC built trails, roads, bridges, cabins, and the focal point of the park, historic Mather Lodge, a 24-room lodge overlooking Cedar Creek Canyon with a restaurant, meeting rooms, and gift shop. The fireplace in the lobby serves as a welcoming gathering place in the winter.

425 PRESIDENT CLINTON AVE LITTLE ROCK, AR PRICE: $$$$$ | TYPE: AMERICAN n the heart of Little Rock’s River Market, Cache is the definition of elegant. Local father and son team Rush and Payne Harding have created an urbane dining experience centered on fine ingredients and a posh atmosphere. At Cache, details are key, and everything from plating to service matters. Chef Harding trained at the Culinary Institute of America based in New York, where he learned the importance of engaging his audience. Thus, a huge, open-air kitchen takes center stage, inviting guests to watch as their dishes come to life. Whether you sit beneath the twinkling modern lights or alongside the sleek, minimalist bar, you’re guaranteed a good view. Also, if the weather’s nice, Cache has some of the best patio space in town. Sit back, grab a creative cocktail from the excellent drink menu, and watch the River Market’s activity from your vantage point. The culinary offerings are creative and wide-spread, as Harding wanted to offer a unique menu. If you want pizza or pasta, or if you can’t chose between fish, duck, or something a little more red, you can expect it to be on the menu at Cache – served up with a flavorful twist. Try Harding’s take on the Southern favorite Shrimp and Grits, or get serious with the Maple Glazed Pork Chop. Don’t count Cache out for lunch. Whether you’re feeling hungry after a day of River Market exploration, or need the perfect backdrop for a business meeting, Cache has open doors to those craving good food. Restaurant Notes: Head upstairs: Cache has one of the best bars for slow sipping in the city. Bonus points if the weather is nice enough to sit on the patio. Use the valet service: No doubt about it, Rivermarket parking is awful. Cache offers free valet and it is worth every penny (especially since it is free, as opposed to nearby deck parking). Because of traffic in the Rivermarket it sometimes takes a minute for your car to return, so grab a drink after you hand over your valet ticket.

1619 REBSAMEN PARK LITTLE ROCK, AR PRICE: $$ | TYPE: CAJUN When you’re craving a taste of New Orleans in Rock City, Faded Rose comes out on top. The restaurant has made a name for itself in the food scene, serving locals Creole comfort food sine 1982. Since day one, not much has changed about the eatery except a few improvements to the patio. Every day the goal is to offer better service than the one before, and to consistently put out delicious Cajun food. Which comes easily to New Orleans native Chef/Co-Owner Ed David. These days, David shares the stage with his son, Zac Co-Owner/General Manager. The family atmosphere pervades the front and back of the house, and upon entering the establishment you’re met with a loud, happy bout of chatter from the numerous families you’re likely to find seating at the various tables, enjoying their meal. The patio is likely to be just as boisterous, as it’s now a haven for outdoor seekers when great weather strikes. Sip Abita on draft beneath an umbrella, and watch the traffic mosey by. Don’t forget to bring your appetite. Known for serving up an excellent steak dinner, the Faded Rose has a mean gumbo in its arsenal, as well as an excellent soaked salad. Locals will tell you, if you catch the restaurant at the right time of year, you might even catch a delicious restaurant-wide crawfish boil. Around March, the eatery is likely to serve up a boil one day a week – typically Wednesday – serving the spicy mudbugs until they run out.
Faded Rose Restaurant
1619 Rebsamen Park Rd
1619 REBSAMEN PARK LITTLE ROCK, AR PRICE: $$ | TYPE: CAJUN When you’re craving a taste of New Orleans in Rock City, Faded Rose comes out on top. The restaurant has made a name for itself in the food scene, serving locals Creole comfort food sine 1982. Since day one, not much has changed about the eatery except a few improvements to the patio. Every day the goal is to offer better service than the one before, and to consistently put out delicious Cajun food. Which comes easily to New Orleans native Chef/Co-Owner Ed David. These days, David shares the stage with his son, Zac Co-Owner/General Manager.

5805 Kavanaugh Blvd Little Rock, AR PRICE: $$ | TYPE: MEXICAN If you want a side of local history with your tacos, visiting Heights Taco & Tamale is your best bet. For nearly 60 years, Browning’s Mexican Restaurant occupied the Kavanaugh location in the Heights, one of the oldest neighborhoods in Little Rock, and while the food wasn’t necessarily the selling point, locals felt at home there. Yellow Rocket Concepts has unleashed Heights Taco & Tamale in a way that subtly captures that local pride while serving up food in a trendy, versatile atmosphere. The space is hip and unique with touches of nostalgia in the large marquee on the far wall, as well as bits of modernity from the colorful light fixtures to the scripted ‘Hola’ along an accent wall. Check out the patio fully equipped with bar stools and shared elbow room. It’s the place to be on nice evenings, sipping a drink and watching passers-by. The menu is a combination of Arkansas roots – think the Delta, with a bit of Tex-Mex thrown in. Come hungry and start with dip, as you’ll have a wide variety of salsas to choose from. Have fun choosing from the seven different taco options or properly dressing up your tamales with cheese dip or chili. The drink menu comes from a local legend, Lee Edwards, who also develop drink menus for past Yellow Rocket restaurants. The offerings are extremely light and drinkable, perfect for the patio. The Whiskey Fix is an excellent choice but the frozen Mojito is a bit of a local go-to drink.
