For any fans of the movie "Gone with the Wind", the Old Mill in North Little Rock is where the opening scenes were shot and the mill is thought to be the only structure left standing from the production. Little Rock is where Bill Clinton lived for some time and it is the largest training and maintenance facility for the aircraft of the United States. Sitting on the south bank of the Arkansas River in the U.S. state of Arkansas, its name comes from an historical landmark of a small rock formation used by early travelers and known as "la Petite Roche". Founded in 1812, it became the capital of the state in 1821. It is a major economic, government and transportation hub with cultural institutions such as the Arkansas Arts Center and the Arkansas Repertory Theater.
You can find where General Douglas MacArthur was born in Little Rock's Arsenal, the only surviving building that includes the Old State House and the MacArthur Museum in the Quapaw Historic Quarter. The Old State House Museum was constructed in 1836 from hand-laid brick and is the oldest surviving state Capitol building on the west side of the Mississippi River. Take a walk or a bicycle ride over the country's longest pedestrian and cycling bridge, the Big Dam Bridge that is 4,226 ft long. Take time out to go to The William J Clinton Presidential Center, which houses the largest collection of American presidential history. Here in the library you can see a full-scale replica of the Oval Office as it was during the Clinton administration. Put the hiking boots on and go for a day of exploring through 1,575 acres of wilderness in the Burns Park. For the history buff interested in apartheid, head to the Little Rock Central High School National Historic Site where in 1957, 9 African-American teenagers entered in a pivotal event for the Civil Rights Movement. Meander around the River Market District when the shopping bug gets to you, or the need for a caffeine shot happens.
During the museum roundup, make sure at some time you bite down on a "cheese dog", the iconic munching food of the locals.
