Little Rock has big things in store...
Outside magazine dubs Little Rock a “hidden gem.”
Little Rock is ready to show NASPL a great time.
Little Rock was named one of “15 Southern Cities All Food Lovers Should Visit Now” by Food and Wine and Southern Living magazines. We won the annual “Readers’ Choice Award” for Best Meeting Site from ConventionSouth Magazine. And Expedia named us among their “14 Cities that Give You the Worst Case of FOMO” (Fear of Missing Out). So, yeah. Bring your appetite.
Little Rock is a historic, walkable, friendly, diverse Southern city. We’ve got great outdoor activities, amazing restaurants and a slew of cool craft breweries. Oh, and there’s an international award-winning distillery that’s great for cocktails and tastings. And a couple of wineries, too. So expect to have fun here.
NASPL 2019 will be headquartered in downtown Little Rock alongside the Arkansas River in close proximity to the River Market District. So it is a short walk or trolley ride to many of our outstanding food and beverage establishments as well as the Clinton Presidential Center. You will have the opportunity to explore the Clinton Library and its lighted pedestrian bridge on Tuesday night during the All-Delegate Event. The fascinating permanent and rotating exhibits of the Center will grab your attention while you feast on a delicious blend of local favorites and internationally inspired cuisine.
Monday night’s Directors and Volunteer Dinner will take participants to SoMa (South on Main), a revitalized five-block stretch of South Main Street in Little Rock that now boasts eclectic businesses, historic homes, outstanding restaurants and a locally owned distillery. Many of Little Rock’s neighborhoods are nifty with their own fine flairs, but none are as fabulously fun and funky as SoMa.
We suggest you extend your stay and explore all that Little Rock has to offer. With world-class attractions, outdoor activities and unique neighborhoods, you are certain to experience a memorable visit to Arkansas’ state capital.
