Fun Spring Activities in Little Rock

Spring is upon us! The weather is starting to warm up and we’ll soon be trading heavy jackets for light parkas and open-toed shoes. Well, it’s been a rainy winter, so we’ve already been getting good use of our rain jackets. 

We’re excited to be able to spend as much time outdoors as we can this spring before summer hits. Here are a few of our favorite spring activities in Little Rock and Central Arkansas! 

Pinnacle Mountain State Park

If you’re an outdoorsy person and live in Central Arkansas, hiking Pinnacle Mountain is a must. The park also has biking and walking trails, pavilions and grassy areas for picnics with grills and outdoor games and a water playground. You can canoe, kayak and fish on the Big and Little Maumelle Rivers.

Magic Springs

Games. Rides. Water park. Magic Springs is the closest theme and water park and it’s tons of fun, no matter what age you are. The park re-opens from its winter hiatus for spring weekends on April 6 and will be open the entire month of June and July.

Arkansas Travelers Games at Dickey-Stephens Park

Play ball! Summer in Arkansas is too dang hot to sit outside for hours for some of us. As the weather warms up, and before it’s blazing, take a day off or go on a weekend to cheer on the Travs with the kids or your friends. The season starts in April and there are tons of home games scheduled through August. 

Esse Purse Museum

The Esse Purse Museum is a collection of 100 years of purses and their contents and its one of only three purse museums in the world. Even if you’re not a purse carrier, it’s worth it to see some of the cool and crazy bags there.

You can visit Esse year-round, but we suggest going when the weather’s nice so you can walk up and down the SoMa district and visit other shops in the area. Hit up Loblolly Creamery for a frozen afternoon treat, take a stroll through Bernice Garden, pop in the vintage shops and have dinner at South on Main or The Root
