With social gatherings over pulled pork, draft beer and occasional thunderstorms, Little Rock is the central hub of education with an active social life. Students can choose between a traditional or online college education, which is especially helpful to those returning to school or balancing studies with an established career. Local schools have several educational specialties, including nursing, criminal justice, psychology and engineering.
Not only is Little Rock known for its 7 major educational institutions and numerous community colleges, but it's also famous for its positive entertainment and friendly lifestyle. One of the best public parks and trails systems in the country can be found here, drawing many outdoorsy souls. Little Rock is also a family-friendly town with an impressive zoo, a submarine tour, electric streetcar trolley rides, and the Presidential library. Catch a viewing of the impressive pieces at Arkansas Arts Center, or try your luck ice skating at the Arkansas Skatium-even when the outdoor temperatures rise. No matter your interests in or out of school, Little Rock is far from little when it comes to options.*littlerock.com *TripAdvisor, "Little Rock Arkansas"
