The place to see and be seen in the state capital is the Little Rock River Market District. Located along the downtown waterfront, the District features quaint and quirky shops, local restaurants, and public art displays. No one gallery can contain Little Rock’s thriving arts scene, so it’s only natural that it spreads onto walls and sidewalks and into gardens and parks throughout the city. From inspirational abstracts to surrealist wonders, Little Rock’s collection of public art is well worth exploring. If you're visiting during the warmer months, purchase your own Arkansas art at the River Market Farmers' Market. Open every Saturday from May through September, the Market provides shoppers with everything from farm-fresh produce and prepared foods to handcrafted goods, art, crafts and jewelry. If shopping and exploring along the river isn't adventurous enough, you and Fido can get out on the Arkansas River on a guided kayak tour with Rock Town Outfitters.
After a full day of fun, peace and relaxation await at your charming pet-friendly cottage at the Rosemont B&B, right in the heart of Little Rock. Five of the six cottages available include private enclosed gardens for pups to explore, and bountiful breakfast is provided each morning.
