Before You Bring Your Kids to Little Rock: Little Rock for Kids and Families


Little Rock is a great place for families. I'll show you how to keep your kids healthy, happy and entertained in Little Rock

Things to Do

Little Rock has many attractions for kids. The downtown area alone can keep kids occupied with the Museum of Discovery, the fun Peabody Ducks, the main library, Heifer's Global Village and more. We also have state parks, water parks and city parks to keep your family busy. The Little Rock Zoo near War Memorial Park is a can't miss family attraction, and don't forget Arkansas Traveler's baseball.

Places to Eat

Little Rock has the typical Chuck E. Cheese, but don't stop there. Our local Purple Cow offers off a soda shop atmosphere with excellent food. All Aboard delivers your meal on a model train. If you don't want gimmicky, the Flying Fish is a nice place to have some excellent catfish and the Dixie Cafe is very family friendly. We also have excellent pizza in Little Rock (try Damgoode Pies). Check out the places where kids eat free.

Celebrations and Special Events

Little Rock has many places to plan your birthday party. Be sure to check the local events before making your weekend plans.

Entertaining Teens

Teens have a few options in Little Rock with some of the most popular designer shops, several movie theaters and water parks. Teens might also enjoy the Clinton Library and some of the other top attractions for adults. Central Arkansas is also the home of many colleges.
