In the middle of the country is a lovely little state called Arkansas. Here is the town of Little Rock that, surprisingly, has a lot to offer. It isn’t the first place I’d consider to be a cultural hub or Catholic hotspot, but it is still on my list of places to see. Here are the top six things I’d like to see in this unsuspecting place:
- Clinton Presidential Library and Museum: One of Arkansas’ greatest claims to fame is that it is the home of the 42nd president of the United States. The museum highlights and recreates some of the best work done by President Clinton to move our country forward.
- Pinnacle Mountain State Park: Over 2,000 acres of nature preserve allows visitors to hike an learn about native Arkansas species through the landscape.
- Museum of Discovery: This super fun looking museum highlights the sciences and engineering. There is a theater devoted to Nikola Tesla’s work with electricity and a theater showing what Arkansas has to live through being in Tornado Alley.
- Historic Arkansas Museum: This exciting museum houses artifacts from throughout Arkansas long history including knives owned by David Bowie.
- Esse Purse Museum: This place just looks fun and unique. Each gallery highlights a different decade. It shows how purses have changed over the year san how the things women keep in purses has changed over the entry. I can get down with an avant-garde attraction like this one.
- St. Andrew Cathedral: This Gothic revival style church is the oldest place of continuous worship in Little Rock. We catholics love consistency! They’ve been going strong since 1845.
I think Arkansas is considered a “fly over state” for some, but after doing a little research, it seems to have so much to offer to tourists. I’d love to see the home of Bill Clinton and enjoy all of the natural landscape the state has to offer.
