Little Rock sits on the banks of the Arkansas River, and was given its name by French explorer Jean-Baptiste Benard de la Harpe in the early 1700s for a rock formation travelers used as a landmark.
Today, Arkansas' capital city is home to more than 700,000 people, several major corporations, and it serves as a shipping hub.
Residents and visitors alike enjoy the city's cultural institutions such as the Arkansas Museum of Fine Arts and the Arkansas Repertory Theatre, along with outdoor activities such as hiking and boating. City dwellers are also just a stone's throw from Arkansas' world famous duck hunting areas.
